Birdsong Candy Box with Artist on the Block

Today is my first official post as part to the Artists on the Block Design Team.  I have created a wonderful candy dish using the Eileen Hull/ Sizzix XL Scoreboard Die along with Graphic 45 Birdsong Collection.
 I first stained the sides of the Artist Block with Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain and while it was drying...
I cut and rolled 75 or so flower petals using my McGill Flower Roller and Mat....
to make these dimensional flowers for my box.
I used the Graphic 45 Birdsong Collection for my Artist Box, adding some clear green beads as legs and fussing cutting some of the patterns for the paper; i.e. flag, lanterns, lady, umbrella, etc. and adding it to my Artist Box with adhesive and pop dots.
 I love metal and ribbons, so I try to incorporate in my designs as much as possible.
I also added branches that I cut out of a River Birch Tree I have in my back yard that has little buds and added my flowers and leaves using a hot glue gun.
Filling it full of Raspberry Kisses along with scattered blossoms and leaves I think it makes for the perfect unique candy dish. I hope you enjoyed my candy box today and think about how you can use the Scoreboard Die from Eileen Hull/Sizzix to make some easy and fun gift ideas. Don't forget to stop by The Artists on the Block Blog to see other inspiring projects. Hugs Pammejo
