Puppy Love candy holder

You know how I cannot resist a dog-themed stamp set?  (let's be honest, I can't resist dog-themed ANYTHING in scrapbook supplies!)  I'm so so so glad I got the Puppy Love set from Jaded Blossom.  I love the little puppy image, and the sentiments are great!  

For this month's challenge at the Jaded Blossom blog, the challenge is anything but a card.  It was probably a pretty easy challenge for most of their customers, because they tend to focus on gift bags and treats, but since I usually make cards it was kind of a challenge for me.  Luckily, I had this pink box sitting in my "old containers that I got something in and thought were pretty so I couldn't stand to throw them out" bin and I used that as a jumping off point.  I'm in love with the pink/turquoise color scheme of many of the Valentine's lines that I've been seeing coming out, so that's the scheme I went with here.

First, I stamped the dog and colored it in using my Sharpies.  Then I cut out the little flag (by hand, but I was sure wishing I had the Jaded Blossom flag dies by my third or fourth attempt!) and stamped on the sentiment, also from the Puppy love set.  

I thought the right side was looking bare, so I got a piece of ribbon that would wrap all of the way around the package, thereby holding it shut and holding the candy in.  Then I punched a little button with my Martha Stewart button punch to embellish it.  I added some classic Valentine's candies- conversation hearts- and it was done.  I've had a horrible time keeping my husband from eating the candies before I could get a good picture on a sunny day.  I had to give him the rest of the bag to keep him out of these ones.  :)
