Love Lives in the Fairy House Box!

As promised yesterday -  today I'm sharing a sweet little treat box that I made for my friend Anne's mother, Evelyn, whom Kent and I visited yesterday along with Anne and her husband.  It's a sweet little Fairy House Box!  and I made it using a free template from Waltzingmouse!
For the door and windows I stamped the house from A Cottage Home and just cut them out from the stamping.  I sponged the edges  with Peeled Paint Distress Ink (as I did on the house and roof) and layered them on the house with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the same set and I die cut it with a banner from Nested Lacey Pennants/Spellbinders. I clipped the banner onto a Memo Pin from Tim Holtz and stuck it into the center of the roof where the pieces come together.




The roof comes off and reveals a little treat bag tucked inside!    How cute is this???!!
