Loved the picture, but at first, nothing came to mind. Then I thought about how the cake looks like a little box, and so I decided to make a box incorporating the same colors, loop-de-loops, and the sweet tooth angle:
See the tooth? Get it, sweet tooth? (ha ha ha, I crack myself up!). So, here's the deal: The box is actually for my daughter's first tooth, which fell out a couple of weeks ago (hence, the tooth on the tag). The tooth fairy came, and now I have this tooth that I didn't want to just toss, but it would get crushed in her baby book. So, a box it is. Here are a few close-ups:
The whole idea of a box for her tooth reminds me a little of my husband's grandmother. Apparently, she kept jars of her body parts on her living room shelf from various surgeries throughout her life. She was from the generation where you never threw anything away in case you needed it later...although I can't think of a time when a spare gallbladder would come in handy.... Hopefully, I'll just stick to the one tooth.
Anyhoo, to make this box, I used a My Time Made Easy template, resized it in SCAL, and cut it out on my Cricut. Then, I stamped the Mint Motif Beyond Borders on the wrapper portion of the box before assembling. I lined part of the inside of the box with patterned paper to add a little pop of pink and to include the loops again. The tooth on the PTI tag is a clip art picture. I glued two tags together, and on the backside, you can see a tiny heart that I inked and heat embossed with holographic e.p. I'm hoping to make a little pillow for the inside, or maybe my mom will make a pillow (hint, hint).
As an aside, a big thank you to PaperCrafts for accepting a few of my cards for the Card a Day call (I was absurdly excited!). And a big thank you to Paige at the create blog for including one of my pink cards in last week's challenge gallery!
