Today's project is an adorable box that you can use to tuck a little surprise into for a special friend.
Here's the finished box:
And here's what happens when you remove the lid. The sides are simply held together with the lid on top!
This is the piece on the inside bottom of the box where you can stamp or write your greeting.
It uses the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions
Catalog. I just love these colors together - Coastal Cabana, Crumb
Cake, Real Red, and Whisper White. Also used were the Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating Petite Petals punch, the Flower Shop punch, Fringe Scissors, sponges, pearls, etc. You can use whatever sparks your imagination!
I CASE-d the box from my friend Ronda Wade. It was posted on a Facebook group that she started. There are always loads of ideas posted there from all kinds of creative stampers!
I figured out how to make the box from this picture of instructions that Ronda posted. If you have any questions on how to make one, feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help you out!
