i {heart} copics Fabulous Friday Challenge #6

It's Friday the 19th of March...guess what arrived in my mailbox yesterday?  NEW MOON! Yup, my DVD pre-order showed up 2 days early!  Bwahahahaha!  Guess what I'm doing tonight after work!

Okay, on to today's post...hang in there, it's a long one!

Oh my gosh, how fun is this?  Have you ever checked out Pixel Geek Designs?  They aren't just digital scrapbooking...they have these really great templates too! 
This week's i {heart} copics challenge is sponsored by Pixel Geek Designs. There are two FREE templates available for you to use and try out. And this week's prize is one free template of the winner's choosing!

Pillow Box (scroll down about halfway) and House Box (scroll down about 3/4 of the way).

Use either one of these or any other 3D template to create a project for this week's challenge

A few guidelines...
- Copic Markers must be used somewhere on the project - either to color an image or an embellishment.
- Entry deadline is 10pm PST on Thursday March 25th
- When uploading to the PCP gallery, please label projects for this challenge with IHC031910

I purchased the Square Box with Handle template and printed it on a piece of 8 1/2 x 12 paper.  Then, I cut it all out and scored all my folds.  I was smart enough to do a tester before I didn my actual box, so that I was able to see how to put it together...and it was quite simple actually.  I used my Nestabilities to cut circles in two side of the box, so that my Easter Goodies would show through.

I used My Mind's Eye Ooh-La-La papers, Chicken Girl Desing Digi Stamps Eggstra-Special Bunny and CC Designs Sugarplums Easter Emma.  I placed Easter Emma on the front of my little treat box, and then cropped and resized the egg from my Eggstra-Special Bunny digi stamp to use on the back.

Finally, I used the sketch from PCP Saturday Sketche for March 13th, opting to put my sentiment on the inside of my card. 
Whew!  Lastly, I ran to the store to find Easter Candy to put into my treat box!  My husband came down to the scrap room to ooh! and aah! over my project, and he commented how nicely the box stays together...and it really does.  I only used a little adhesive on the side where the box wraps around...the rest just nest's together nicely.  Love it!  I can see making many more projects with this template.

Just a quick note on adhesive.  I have a Scotch ATG gun, and it's a monster...but it works beautifully.  But OMG!  Kate sent me some of her i {stick} papers red line tape...this stuff is like super glue!  Super easy to use, super sticky and I'm sure I'll be buying lots of it in the future!

I am also entering my creation into the following challenge:
