Do you ever have those days where your crafty idea sounds FABULOUS in your head, but when you go to implement the idea, it just does not work? Well, for me that happened with this project. The project I had intended to show you, just did not turn out, so I decided to make something from artiste that was kinda fun and cute. I cut this 3D object from letter b in Artiste. I was going too add embellishments, but I kinda liked they way it turned out :)

  1. So pretty! Love your orchid box. It looks very tropical.

  2. This is a lot of fun. It just makes me smile to look at it.

  3. how fun and super cute

  4. For a last minute item, it turned out really nice.

  5. Thank you for all of the nice comments~

  6. Theodora
    What a cute idea, does it open so you can fill it with candies?

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Denise, you can take the flower off and add candles, but I would add the battery votive style. I am not sure how much light you would get from it, but it would look pretty.

  8. What an interesting idea. It would look great on a summer party table, with treats hidden inside of course.

  9. Very Cute! A lot of friends are having bridal showers with beach themes lately and these would be great table decorations!
