Sweety Box...glammed up!

Afternoon ladies...I went into M&S last week and bought some pick'n'mix sweets and you put them in these cute brown stripe and spot cartons! How gorgeous are they?

Well ...they could be even more gorgeous....

TA DA!!!! I just had to glam it up a bit...I made up a large daisy using my DCWV flowers and popped a red button in the centre. Added some spotty ribbon for a stem and some thin lime and brown to act as leaf foliage.

I added a greeting and butterfly to the top.....

And covered the writing on the back, added a greeting and another butterfly.

I am hoping M&S will donate a few so I can decorate some more for our School Fundraising events this year. I think they would be lovely for Mother's day with sweets/fudge in!
Ww are off to visit the Girls High School now....choices for secondary school need to be made by the middle of October! Yikes...Thanks for popping by...


  1. What a wonderful idea,Sally...the box looks gorgeous now and would be great for a gift container...let's hope M & S oblige.
    Good luck with the school hunting.

  2. What a very neat idea, It looks great.
