Peachykeen Stamps Challenge Let's Face It, It's Friday - Think Spring

Here is my attempt at this week's Let's Face It, It's Friday challenge on Peachykeen Stamps.  I made a dozen of these pillow boxes for Valentine's Day, so I thought it would be fun to make them for Spring with flower seeds inside.  It just didn't work out as easily as the Valentine ones.  The boxes are made from acetate and embossed on the big kick.  You can't see the embossing that is butterflies, flowers, and swirls.  When deciding on a tag, I didn't want it to be too big for the box, but yet big enough for the faces.  It looked much cuter in my head, but since there was a snowstorm here last night, it was still nice to think of spring!

I cut the pillow box using Wrap It Up cartridge on the gypsy.  I used the hide feature to not cut the diploma design.  Next I embossed it in the big kick.  Once I folded and sealed my box using the ATG gun, I wrapped in rickrac.  The grass on my tag was made from Platnum School Book.  The thinking of spring was gypsy wanderings.  It actually said "thinking of you" but again, I used the hide feature to get rid of "you" and added spring by welding them together.  The daisy is from Walk in My Garden and I used Peachy Keen Everyday character faces.  I just love these stamps.  They add so much personality!
