When I do workshops for other people, I always make a door prize that can be won by one of the attendees.  I like to show the versatility of the Stampin' Up! products.  Think outside the square, we are MORE than just scrap book and card supplies!  I will fill this wee Pizza box with chocolates or another hand made product.  I always hope that it will inspire the receiver to have a go at making things themselves!

 I have used my favourite stamp set "Lovely as a Tree" to create the topper.  First, I spritzed water on the Very Vanilla card stock to get it nice and wet.  Inked up and stamped my image.  This causes the ink to run all over the place, a really awesome effect.  Once dry, I stamp the image again for nice crisp lines.  I have added faux stitching and ribbon to match the colours I have used, then "grunged" and tore a co-coordinating piece of card stock mat.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree
Card Stock: Soft Suede, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Soft Suede coordinating ribbon, dimensionals, paper piercing tool, Chocolate Chip marker, Sticky Strip, Water bottle
