Happy Spring!

Last week was the first official week of Spring… can you believe that??  Actually, LAST week I did believe that given that it was in the eighties in New England.  Scary!  This week we are back to the seasonal 48* temps but they sting so much more after that massive tease. Sigh. 

Today I have a cure for my Spring Fever… candy wrapped up in pretty!


That’s some Fancy Pants Summer Soul right there.  I didn’t use any of the beach-y elements and opted instead to keep these bright and cheery with a generic Spring vibe. 



The pillow box is old flower packaging.  I never throw stuff like this away!  I used all kinds of Summer Soul goodies on here: ruffled paper, filter embellishments, buttons, chipboard, oh my!

This clear box is from The Container Store.  I wrapped the ruffled paper around the top of the box but made sure it could freely open.  The flower on top was made with an EK Success 3D punch and I used foam tape to elevate the leaves. 

The Easter peanut butter cups inside *barely* survived through the picture taking… mmmmm!

Speaking of treats… have you checked out the awesomely apt theme at Paper Issues these days?  Yeah, we’re talking Candy Shoppe right now and I highly recommend having something sweet to snack on while you look at all the amazing candy themed projects that have been linked up.  And link up your own while you’re at it…. I am!

Beautiful work! I love that you used a beach themed paper for a refreshing spring project. Now I'm off to raid more my hubby's Reese's Peanut Butter Egg. ;)
