Inspiration Emporium May Challenge ~ Packaging

It's Inspiration Emporium challenge time!

This month our challenge was to use packaging.....YIKES, that's a new one for me. I thought and thought and fretted and fretted about what in the world I was going to use. I was working on something else and ran out of E6000 so I went to my adhesive drawer and got out another PACKAGE of E6000, light bulb time, I found my packaging Ü
The flowers on the tag are paper pieced, the flower centers are punched with a circle punch.
OK, so, it wasn't easy getting the plastic thingy back in place with the jellybeans in it, jellybeans were flying everywhere and a few choice words were flying outta my mouth, but, I finally got it together. You know, now that I think about it, I could have used tim's tiny attacher and just stapled the thing on instead of tucking it back under the cardboard, ugh. Lesson learned.
