Doodlebug Sweet Cakes

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I've been busy working on gifts for friends and teachers. I started out by making the box with the Silhouette using two different Sweet Cakes patterns - a print for the top box and a more classic dot print for the actual box. I also lined the box with a stripe pattern for some contrast. Next I filled it up with packages of Sweethearts and a gift card from our local movie theater.
I used a piece of acetate for the window of the box and some jewels to decorate the white border. I made a 'garland' of hearts using twine and some punched out hearts. I think it adds a little whimsy and a cute decorative touch.

And now for the giveaway --- leave a comment here on my blog and then hop on over to  the Doodlebug blog.  Just leave a comment there and  YOU'RE ENTERED to win the entire Sweet Cakes line! Winners will be announced on 1/31/12 on the Doodlebug blog. Good luck!
