Just Us Girls #125 - Template/3D Challenge

Hello friends!  This week's challenge over at Just Us Girls is our Template/3D challenge and I'm the hostess!  I love me my templates!  The challenge is to use ribbons, flowers, and buttons.  You MUST use all three on a template or 3D item...that's the challenge!

Here's what I came up with.  This is a newer box from My Time Made Easy.  It's not listed as a template, but rather a cut file called Card Candy.  It's so cute and only takes one sheet of cardstock to make.  I cut mine from vintage cream cardstock and decorated it with this dp from Prima called Madeline.  I made a belly band from chocolate satin ribbon (check!) and placed two Prima flowers (check!) on top and finished the middle with a button (check!).  Challenge completed!  But there's more!
When you remove the belly band and open the top panel, it becomes a card!  Love this!  The box itself is the size of a box of playing cards.  I used the Flutters and Flowers cut file from MTME to cut out the butterfly.  I just put a piece of acetate over it to contain the candy inside.  The sentiment is from MTME also called Keep Strong stamp set.
This is what the box looks like when it's open.
And here you can see the butterfly cut out better with the candy emptied from the box.  (And no I DID NOT eat the candy!  I gave it up for Lent!)
I'm away with my girlfriends this weekend in Syracuse for some girls' weekend thing.  My one friend lives there and invited us to this event.  So I thought I'd make one for each of them, hence the "friend" sentiment.  They really are so adorable (I'm talking about the boxes, but my friends are too!  LOL!)
