Lunch Box Swap

I was part of a Lunch and Paint box Swap that Bits-N-Pieces hosted. My partner was Dalia, here is my lunch box. I decorated using some Anna Griffin paper, which it had my partners favorite colors on it, "pink". I bling the front part of the lunch box and the back.
I added some die cuts from French Manor. I also heat emboss the top and some of the sides with black and pink embossing powder.

I also added metal letters and heat emboss with Pink powder and thick embossing glaze powder.
I really had a blast decorating this lunch box, which it was my first time decorating a lunch box swap... Here are the goodies I added inside the lunch box..some bling, flowers, papers, etc.

Mini Heart Boxes

I made these for my daughter teachers and aides. I used my gypsy(i finally got the hang of it) and use TBBM cartridge and emboss it with the Sizzix Templates Hearts. I heat emboss the heart by pouring Pink powder. I filled them with M&M Valentine milk chocolate candy.

This is the inside and used my gypsy to cut out the heart from this thick glitter paper from recollections and added a flower with rhinestone.
