Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
what is one of the first signs of Spring??...well tulips of course...
I decided to make a "Tulip Box"...
I used a template that I have had forever from Sandra's Scrap Shop... 
the design paper is Basic Grey...
I didn't have an image that had tulips...this was the closest I could find in my stash...
I used "Tulip Petals",  "Ivy Tendrils" and "Tiny Tendrils" dies from Memory Box...
 this is "Take Time to Smell the Flowers" HMUR1062...
coloured with my copics...
the button is sewn on as a handle for opening the box...
 view from above...
 and the back of the tulip and image that sits on top of the box...
I decorated the back as I didn't like the unfinished look...
 opening the box...
I can use this for Easter candy for the Grandkiddies...
Well that is my "Spring" Tulip Box!!  It was so much fun to it's your turn!!  We hope that you will join us in the fun over at House Mouse and Friends...we are looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations!!
Until next time...thank you for taking the time to stop by!!!  Your visits and comments are SO very much appreciated!!
Mousey Hugs,
