Sweet Celebrations 3

This was one of my favorite things to make for the Leadership Displays. It was the first time I tried to make an acetate box! (Acetate sheets are actually overhead projection sheets.) I decided not to fill it...although I looked all over for pink and white M&Ms...thinking they would have them for Breast Cancer Awareness (remember...I made these back in October/November timeframe)...but nothing. I found some pink peppermint patties, but knew they would be too heavy to stay up on the Displays. So...I opted to just keep it empty.

I was thinking of wedding favors when I made this, but it is appropriate for Valentine's Day right now! The medallion is several layers of punches...two scallop punches in Regal Rose and Whisper White, the center holds a Build-A-Brad. The medallion on the side is repeated and placed on the top flap, too!

These are lots of fun to make. I'll have to whip up a few more soon!
Happy Monday...
