Pie Box for Parade Your Crafts #9

It is time again for the new challenge at Parade Your Crafts.  The theme for PYC#9 is Thanksgiving, which is going to be here soon.  To me, that means family and food!  When Lisa from sent me Echo Park's Reflections: Fall collection of paper I was completely inspired by the saying that you see on the card I made.  "There is always room for pie."  My family has always loved pie.  My mom is the queen of making fruit pies and she currently makes and sells pies every weekend.  It is a lot of work when you make everything from scratch, but there are no pies that you can buy that even remotely compare to hers.  So I made these projects for her!
I made this pie gift box from SVGCuts' Fall Harvest SVG kit.  I used both the 12x12 papers and the 6" paper pad from the Reflections: Fall collection.  It opens up and I added some candy inside.
Here is a close up of the flowers on the top.  These flowers were easy to assemble and the papers were perfect for them.  I used a round 14 Epiphany crafts tool to make the center for the mum.  I used brown chalk around all of the edges to add definition.  The sentiment banner is from the layered stickers.  The bow is made of sunflower rumpled ribbon.
And now on to the card...I used the saying from this paper, added lots of layers of designer paper and used stickers and layered stickers to embellish it.
I used "Olive You" mama's mesh for the bow and some Tim Holtz Distress glitter for the three dots at the bottom and on the pumpkin stem.  I love the subtle touch of glitter it added.

 Here is the inside.  Once again, I used more of the stickers from the Reflections: Fall set.
I hope you enjoyed my projects and don't forget to link up your Thanksgiving projects at Parade Your Crafts!
