We have dear neighbors who have a dachshund named Maddy who owns them, and they often walk down and sit on the porch with us in nice weather. Maddy celebrated her 11th birthday recently, so I made her a little crate with a bag of treats. The crate was done with a SU! die, and embossed with a Darice ef and sponged for a little weathering. Rather than re-package the treats, I left the bag sealed and just folded the top over and it fit perfectly into the crate! I tied the thick twine from SU around the folded top, and attached a tiny die-cut tag from MFT with her name hand printed with a white marker. I fastened the tag with a snippet of twisted red & white twine. (Maddy wears a red collar which is why I used red accents) The medallion was done with a SB scalloped circle die as well as a MFT stitched circle die and stamped with a SNSS sentiment. I added a few Taylored Expression enamel hearts/dot for fun.
Here's the back of the crate, with a die-cut dachshund by Poppystamps, and a fence done with a Martha Stewart punch. along with a grassy border done with a SNSS die. I dotted the dog's eye with a fine marker.
Since I decorated the front and back, I decided to decorate the sides too. I used a cute little bone stamp I got in a $1 set at Mike's years ago. The Repeat Impressions sentiment was heat-embossed with white ep on a snippet of red cardstock and cut with a die from SU!'s Hearts a Flutter Framelit set.
Here's the other end, done with another Repeat Impressions stamp embossed on another red snippet.
Since most of this treat package was made with snippets, I'm sharing it over at the Snippets Playground #331.
I'm also sharing with the Dies R Us challenge #101 - which is "birthdays"
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday! It's always a pleasure to have you visit :)
