Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – hope you have a great weekend planned! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #49 – August Anything Goes! You know how I love my fun folds and I’ve been playing again! This is one I’ve had in my tutorial folder for at least a year and a half and I’m not sure why I haven’t made one – it was super fun! My inspiration came from a YouTube video HERE and as always, I put my own spin on it. This would make such an awesome box to give chocolate or other candy, or a set of trinkets to someone as a gift. ;)
I created a little cluster of shabby goodness for the front of the box consisting of a mini doily, a filigree embellishment, a small bouquet of white paper flowers, a small black bow and a butterfly. I added the priceless treasure sentiment and some pink Dot Sparklers to finish it off.
Here’s the box opened up. I used a coordinating paper to create the four small boxes inside. I created faux handles for the boxes from 1/4″ punched circles embellished with the pink Dot Sparklers. They are flat and don’t hinder the box when closed.
Here’s a view from above. I lined the boxes with matching cardstock.
And here’s one more look at the inside. OMG, this was fun! ;)
