Anyone for Anya? - Vintage White

Vintage white is the challenge on Anyone for Anya this week. I've made a little treat box and tag. The box is a top heavy pillow box cut file purchased from the Digichick and cut on my Cricut. I inked the tag and box with Antique Linen distress ink to give them their vintage look. My Twinkle Tot is coloured with pencils and the sentiment is by the Angel Company. This was a great challenge for me as I love white on white creations.

I hope you will join the challenge this week. We are sponsored by Jacobi and you can win a great prize.
I actually made a few treat packages so I thought I'd show you them all while I'm on the subject. I've used various stamps for the tags, from Stampin Up, Waltzing Mouse, TAC and MSE. They are filled with homemade white chocolate fudge. Yummy.

ETA no photo of the fudge I'm afraid, was in too much of a rush but here's a link to the recipe. Very quick and easy - I've made it several times and never had it go wrong. I use vanilla extract and don't add any nuts but I'm sure it would be lovely with nuts too.

These are totally gorgeous, Julie. Funnily enough I made my first pillow box on Monday which I'm putting on my blog tomorrow! I love how you've coloured Anya in the vintage style, she looks wonderful with the embossed tag.

By the way there's something for you on my blog - see today's earliest post x

Hi Julie,

Your blog is fab and full of lovely inspiration. I have a passion for making little gift bags and boxes, to fill with a little something and give to friends and relations. So I may give these a try. Thank you for the link to the recipe, I will try that too. I also love your tags. All beautifully handcrafted with lots of TLC.
