Post a link to a photo of your treat container here in the comments section. Need some inspiration? Check out our gallery! We can't wait to see your creativity! Happy altering!

"You're So Sweet!" Challenge Four

March winner

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for our March Shapes and Letters challenge. We are excited to announce that Shelley May is our winner! We will be sending you our awesome prize pack including two shapes from Say It With Letters and some other scrapbook goodies.

Who doesn't like to receive a treat? You know what they say, "the packaging makes the present!" So, why not do something sweet and alter a treat container. Fill it with some homemade cookies or a favorite snack and give it to someone, just because.

Our challenge to you for April is to get creative with your containers! Think before you throw it away. Pringles cans, coffee cans, deli containers -- they can all be altered. Creative Imaginations makes paper containers, or you can alter a paper mache box. Cricut makes a cartridge just for cutting Tags, Bags & Boxes. You can even download templates from the internet.

For April we invited Sarah Tirrell-Baker to guest design with us. Her soft, shabby-chic style shines through in her lovely treat box. Here's what our designers came up with:

Sarah - GDT



Included in this month's prize is some great stuff from Li'l Davis Designs. Check out that Rickrack & ribbon, a Junkitz accordion album, fun chipboard from Scenic Route, some Bazzill, Making Memories rub ons & 7 Gypsies stickers. Everything you need for some fun vacation, week-end getaway layouts.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with for our April challenge! Link us to your projects from your blog or online gallery to this post by Wednesday April 30th at midnight. (You can email us a photo of your container if that's easier, too.) Keep checking back as we update the Food or Treat Box gallery. Once again, thanks for playing with us at {SAR}!
