Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 145 - Zebra Stripes

Grab Our ButtonCan you believe it's Friday already?  This week really flew for me!  My craft room is a total mess!  That's how I gauge my productivity.  I will spend tonight or Saturday putting everything where it belongs and begin again on Monday!!!  I went to Hobby Lobby today and made a few purchases - a few Copics, some pretty ribbon spools (I used one today above), and some felt. 

Today I'm playing along with Cupcake Iinspirations Challenge 145.  I saw this zebra striped confection and knew I had to play along.  I'm getting close to the wire (entries close in a few hours) so I'm going to keep this one short. 
 I started out with a wooden purse shaped box that I found at Michael's for - get this - $2.99!!!  I painted it with gesso, then a coat of white acrylic paint.  Then I covered the front and back in a shimmery zebra print paper, added some black gems and fuchsia felt rolled flowers.  I wanted my sentiment to look like a price tag attached with black and white twine. 

I will be filling the box with chocolates to give to my sister for Valentines day.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
