Sweet box (quite literally...!)

This is a small 4" box I made for my mum as she wanted something to put some little sweets in that she had bought as a present. I have used Papermania Henbury lane papers and as they are so detailed and beautiful I didnt really want to spoil them with lots of embellishments! So I have just added a ribbon to dress up the rim a little :)

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz challenge - Anything but a Card!
Creative Cottage - No Cards Allowed!


Thanks for looking!
