WMS May Release Preview - Day 2 - It's All About Family!


Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse May Previews - Weren't yesterday's cards just SO fun to see?!  Today we are working with a wonderful new sentiment set called Compact Family!  Perfect for personalizing all those cards or crafts we make for relatives - aunts, uncles, grandmother's, sisters, daughters ...... you get the idea!

Today I made a treat box for my sister, Marcia. Her birthday was at the end of April and I sent her a card - but haven't seen her - so I'll give her this next time I do!  The sentiments on the top are from Compact Family.

I used stamps from the Feb Waltzingmouse Release, French Country, on the sides and the Bon Appetit tag. The rose bud on the top is also from this set.
Here is the box opened with some yummy Ferrero Rond Noir candies nestled inside!
I purchased the template for this interesting box from My Time Made Easy.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today and that you'll come by again tomorrow for our final day of Previews before the release on Tuesday, May 8th.

Remember to check out Claire's competition here.  You could win credit for stamps in the store!
