A Slice of Coffee Treats!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm here with my project for the SNSDC5, and this week the challenge is to create anything but a card. For my project I made a cake slice box! My great Aunt will turn 106 years young in July, and she loves coffee candy, so I'm stuffing this full of her favorite sweets, and it will be going to her. She hates receiving a lot of gifts all the time and usually recycles everything she gets, but hopefully she'll enjoy the treats inside before she passes this on to another visitor :) If it brings a smile to her face, then my mission will be accomplished, because I really enjoyed making it for her. It's made with chocolate chip card stock and blushing bride DP, and I used the Birthday Cake Cocoa digi to make the matching tag.
I colored the tag to match the DP and added a few scraps of matching DP and punched card stock. I used the EK chain zig-zag punch and found that one of those negative pieces from punching looked cute on the bottom edge, so I stuck it on as a border. I added some SU satin ribbon and a tag cut from my Cricut and attached it with copper cording. The sentiment is from the Sweet'nSassy Poppies and Greetings clear stamp set found here.
If anyone needs any details on my project, feel free to shoot me an email!
Just a reminder ..........in order to play along with this challenge, you must use only Sweet'nSassy images! You'll have a week to link up your projects right here. I'll be looking to see your anything-but-a-card creations throughout the week!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Carol, Just gorgeous! I love the pink and chocolate together. Great coloring and I also love the idea of using the negative from the punch. Great thinking! I'm sure your aunt will thoroughly enjoy some of her little treets this year. God Bless her. I know what she means to you and you are so lucky to still have her in your life. Thank you for sharing this beautiful treat box with us.
