Tiny Gift

Morning all!
How was your weekend? I was a little unsure how mine was going to pan out. Saturday was quiet but went to Ally Pally on Sunday. Was nice to catch up with some friends there. I was introduced to some fab new people too including Brenda Brown (Bumblebees & Butterflies). I hope you got to enjoy your weekend too.
Today I want to show you a simple covered container. I've a tiny gift for someone - I wonder if she can guess it's for her? I'd thought to make one of our treat bags but would need to extend to increase the size. I made the whole thing, stamped and embossed, was pretty ..... but not large enough. Note to self: don't craft when you're tired!
Then I remembered some Crystal Light containers that I'd kept after making the swaps last March, shown below, which contained the drink sachets. 
So, a quick root around in my box, a little stamping with Crazy About You and Flower Patch. This is what I came up with.

The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, I masked the word 'Baby'.
The photo doesn't show the colours quite as bright as the are - luscious Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow. But you get the idea. Finished off with a little Silver Sparkle dazzling Details, a rhinestone and Hello Honey Quilted Cotton Ribbon, so soft.
Hmm, something not quite right - needs trim around the lid but, as it's ridged, nothing will stick long enough. Maybe some trim around the top?

 I do hope it doesn't look too shoddy as gift packaging!
Thank you for joining me, I do hope you've enjoyed your visit today!
