Cute & Easy treat box

Hello folks!
I am showing a little Chinese treat box that I decorated today.  You could put so many different things in this box, from a small gift, to home-made cookies or candy.  It cost under $1 to buy, and I just added some ribbon, stamped some super cute images from the Sunshine & Smiles stamp set from Avocado arts, cut/embossed the image with a Spellbinders die template, and this baby was good to go.
I used some Copic markers to color in the images, and drew little swirly lines with a black pen from the flowers.
This week, the Avocado Arts design team will have daily inspiration for you to check out using this fun stamp set.  Make sure to visit the rest of these designers this week.  If you are new to Avocado Arts, head on over here, to check it all out.

Materials Used:
Sunshine & Smiles stamp set
Copic Markers
green ribbon
foam tape
Spellbinders die template

I would LOVE to get this cute little box as a gift! It wouldn't even need to have anything inside :) The little flowers "springing" up are SO CUTE! The green in the tree and the pink flowers (amazing coloring/shading) looks fabulous against the blue box. SUPER project Latisha!

Is this the cutest little box!?! Love it! Could you that sentiment on the box for lots of fun little goodies - esp. chocolate! Thanks for sharing the idea! Sometimes it is fun just to give someone a little something - just because you can!
