After Eight dispenser

Last weekend my hubby and one of the girls left for a weekend with
my in-laws up northwest, and I was happy to be able to
spend a lot of the weekend crafting :-))

I made this After Eight dispenser for someone I hold dear, who is
celebrating birthday soon, to remind both her and myself of
spring actually coming to the northern hemisphere also this year !
(Had my doubts only a few weeks ago, but now I am happy to see the
snow disappearing day by day).

Very simple, actually, but I am very happy about how it turned out !

And then before entering a few challenges, I kinda discovered
I wasn't as happy anyway, as I found it to be a bit TOO simple...

Hence, I found this very pretty Tilda and just had to colour her
with my ProMarkers in yellow tones (7 all together, actually !)
(Only other colour - except for the skin tones - are two greens; meadow + leaf)

Isn't she cute ? 

Behind / above Tilda you can also see a clearer glimpse of the
MS punch and also the beautiful lace.

Below is a closeup of the top using 6 different sizes of dies

Here is the other side, with a little floral arrangement at the bottom.

On top a little bit of lace, shaped like a crown, with gems under and
further down on the box.

'Only the best is good enough for a chocolate lover'
(I think...)

I have used a string of gems around the box, in addition to
butterflies all over, and the DP which is filled with strawberries :-)

I surely welcome spring now, after a long cold winter.

In the front I have made a bow of this sweet ribbon
(tusen takk, Sakkalo), in yellow with ladybugs.

brilliant altering you`ve got there! Very pretty! Thank you for playing with us at BTC&G and good luck! X

lynne sa...

Wow, this is stunning! Great idea to alter a after eight box. Us crafters alter anything that stays still long enough i think! I have a pile of boxes and tins that i intend to alter but never seem to get round to it! Anyway i love this box and the person who receives it will be over the moon!

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Calender this month and hope you can join us for the April challenge!

Tusen takk for koselig kommentar. :) Jammen er du en superdyktig og kreativ dame. Denne dispenseren var helt herlig. Så stilig pyntet og den sjokoladeteksten var bare helt super. Så må jeg bare beundre deg at du skriver på engelsk, dit tar det nok en stund før jeg kommer.

Ha ei riktig god helg!

Klem, Trine :)
