ice cream petite inspiration box

This is the ice cream themed box I put together for Stevie at My Art Canvas:
I used polka dotted paper to cover the boxes because their colorful dots reminded me of sprinkles. I made some polka dotted ruffled ribbon and sewed it together with vintage lace to line the box's edges. I found these sundae tags on etsy. I tied one of the tags down on the box using pale blue organza ribbon.
I filled the box with several ice cream themed goodies, but I couldn't fit this cupcake punch in the box, so I left it out when I sent it along:
I thought the cupcake punch top would also make a cute ice cream scoop.
I filled Stevie's box with as many ice cream goodies I could find (and fit in the box):

I found an ice cream lip gloss, a rubber stamp, a cookie cutter, and Japanese erasers. I decided to throw in a few heart themed goodies like this grosgrain ribbon: I also made Stevie an ephemera/whimsy kit for her box:I included several ice cream stickers, colorful buttons, one of those sundae tags, heart rhinestone embellishments, and some flashcards from Cari's shop:I also made Stevie an ice cream tiny book.  I'll be sharing it another day. It's in the above picture on the top right.
