another box

Last box with the doily die for a while, I cant face cleaning the bits from the floor lol.

Hard to see from the photo but this box is 8" by 6" by 7" and was made with 5 sheets af a4 card. I made it to hold a large selection of bath & body gels for my sons girlfriends birthday pressie.

If I'd remembered it was her birthday earlier I'd have lined it with mount/chipboard so it's not exactly sturdy. 4 doily strips, 4 of the smaller lacy "sqrs" which where cut and turned into corner decorations, a spellbinder motif die designed by Sue Wilson (sorry it's name elludes me at present) finished with 3 kort & godt roses tied with ribbon and placed into a beadcap. You can't tell from the photo but I hotglued 4 large pink crystal beads under neath to create a pretty version of the TH decorative box feet.

Doesnt look that great in the photo but in real life it turned a relatively inexpensive gift look quite pricey ;o)

Get me, I made this one at playday on Sunday!! Ok, wee bit of exaggeration there.. I had the card & base tag made already so just coloured and cut the image there ;o)

Papers are from a pretty naff docrafts pack, Marianne Design scroll die for the tag with some bronzy buff cream to highlight the embossed area. Marianne Design stamp that I've had a couple of years without inking. Not keen on my colouring, I didnt have any Elegance with me so used Staples paper and it's not the best. I dont overly get on with red copics either lol.

Ovals are fancy oval dies from Spellbinders and I used an old SU sentiment. Not a brilliant card, but will do for the neighbours that pop a card through the door first ;o)
