Good evening!
This gorgeous box has been saved in my favourites file for such a long time and it has been a real pleasure to actually start making these projects.
I really hate casing cards/projects so I have used this template as my base and then decorated and changed a few aspects of the original just to make it my own. :)
I have used Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP for the box and cards, the box fits up to six 3 by 3 cards inside, envelopes included.
I love these new Filigree Designer Brads, I used these to fasten the box as shown in the picture.
For the sides I used my 1-1/4 punch ( Riding Hood Red) folded in half and fastened with some brads from the Styled Silver Hodge Podge Hardware.
Stamp set used Circle Circus punched out with the scallop punch.
I have taken lots of photos so that you get the idea but its such a versatile box that you can decorate it anyway you want, to make it your own.
So click here for the template and I would love to hear from you if you like this project and would like to see more.
Have a great night

These boxes are so cute. Esp love the Parisian Breeze set, but I'm rather biased towards that paper :-). Must overcome my box fear & have a go.
