     Using the Envelope Punch Board by We 'R' Memory Keepers I made this little 'treat'
 box.  It measures 3 1/2" x 3" and is 1 1/2" thick.  There is a very helpful video HERE.
     All the edges are burnished with Gathered Twigs ink by Tim Holtz.

     I packaged up cookies for this 'treat'.  The belly bands decoration is made with Nesting Scallops die also from We 'R' Memory Keepers.

                                               Cookies all tucked in and ready to go.

     Picture frame made of wood and scrapes of paper.  It was really designed around a clip art image I found of this darling 'sleepy eyed' owl.  Where else? ... on Pinterest.  Finished measurements are 7 3/4" tall x 4 3/4" wide.
     The flowers are made by using a five petaled punch by 'ek'.  They are then burnished with Brocade Blue ink from Stampin' Up and mounted on floral wire.  Then set in holes drilled in wood. 

     Wood pieces are old rubber stamps.  I just prided the rubber stamp piece off and covered the blocks with scrapes of paper.  The photo mat was run through an embossing folder.
     The various clumps of flowers, stars and grass were made using five different dies:   Tiny Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz, Grass by Impression Obsession, Make a Wish by Spellbinders and Stars by Stampin' Up.

     Close up of clip art.  I cut out two and glued them together, burnished the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and mounted on floral wire.  It sets in a hole drilled into the top of wood. 

                                               Close up of owl image on the bottom.
