For hycct.29, we're to create a treat container with pink, black, silver and white. I agonized over this one!!! What kind of container and treat would survive being shipped to Texas? and fit in my already stuffed padded envelope? So. I purchased a sturdy tin of curiously strong altoids (cinnamon, for the hottie who'll be getting it...) and tucked it into a gift bag that I got from the swap prize box.
For TLC, we're to weave ribbon. Again, a juicy puzzle to solve. In my sewing room, I found an old plastic mesh bag-- the kind that was used to package oranges. Can you see it behind the altoid bag? I popped a patch of it into the embroidery hoop and wove ribbon through the mesh. I sandwiched (LOTTA red line and xyron adhesive) the weaving between a black glittery lacey square and a silver, burlap embossed heart frame. Add a tiny sentiment. Voila, a tag for the treat bag.
After all that work, I hope it survives the trip to Texas. I'm surely NOT going to hand deliver it!!

Love the look of your woven element! When my kids were little and Altoids first came on the scene, I noticed my son flexing his muscles after eating a mint. When I asked him what he was doing, he said he was checking because the box said Curiously Strong! Maybe the patient who gets your treat bag will find extra strength from it!
