You have until My 16, 2012 to enter your project.

For my project, I created a tote box using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I maxed the size for an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock and ended up with a box size of 3 1/2 W, 1 1/8 D, 4 1/4 H plus the handle.

I hot glued a strand of pearly beads around the edges and the handle. 

For the rolled flowers, I used MCT new Rolled Flower Die (this is my first project using the this type of die)  Click Here to see the die and a video on how to use it.  

I think I did pretty good for my first try...and I'm even a lefty, which sometimes with rolling you have to compensate....LOL I added some loose beads in the center of the flowers. I used leafs from a silk flower arrangement.
For the center of the box, I used MCT Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies and used the All Around Everything stamp set Emma created to go along with these dies. 

I then threaded some twine through a heart button and glued it onto the circle.  I pop dotted the scallop/stitched circle. And Viola!

I'm going to add some sugar free hard candies to the box and give to my mom for Mother's Day.  I hope you enjoyed my project for today and I hope you were inspired to make something for your mom for this coming Sunday. 

Have a great day, Chao!  --C
