Going Banana’s for Crazy 4 Challenges!

c4c-monkey-treat-wm

Wow Saturdays come around quick don’t they!!!!! Of course for me Saturdays mean challenge time with my “Crazy” friends over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Of course that is crazy in the nicest way hehe!

This week our hostess with the mostest Joanne Grzelak has challenged us to another fun challenge …. which is to create a treat container. I decided to keep away from the Christmas theme this week and decided to use my monkey stamp instead to create my treat box.

c4c-monkey-treat-2-wmI created the box using a template and stamp that I purchased from Darcie Rubber Stamps a number of years ago … the template is called Lock Box Template and can be found here.

My daughter found these cute banana lollies a few months back when she was shopping and thought I might like them for one of my stamping projects … they work perfectly for this treat box!

c4c-monkey-treat-3-wm Here’s a pic to show the top of the box and how the various sections “lock” into each other to keep the box closed.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Recipe:

Stamps: Monkey Banana Frame -  Darcie Stamps; Jungle Leaves – Rubber Stampede

Paper: White

Other: Black Ink; Green Ink; Acetate; Darcie Locked Box Template; Copics
