Cosmo Cricket Projects

I am loving the Snorkel line for Cosmo Cricket because it is so colorful with a vintage flair. Here's a card I made this week for The Pink Elephant's challenge (favorite color combination) using mostly Cosmo Cricket product with a touch of SEI and Bazzill. Okay, it's a lot of colors but the predominant colors are red, cream, and blue. I am liking this combination lately. :-)

But not stopping at the card. I made this fun little container from a cinnamon bun icing packaging. I just love how small it is! It has lots of possibilities for uses. My immediate thought was to house a mini album. Then my mind thought it would make a cute little tooth fairy box and yet then I thought, how cute would it be to hold a "finding" from digging in the dirt? I remember as a child my pockets held tiny rocks, flowers, a penny, etc. It was the best feeling finding a treasure! Anyhow, I hope you like this little treasure box.

Here's the before:
