Gift Box


Hope you're all having a nice Sunday!  We'll just ignore the fact it's Monday tomorrow and that means work!  BOO!

I've managed to reach the dizzy heights of 30 followers!!  How amazing - so hello to Tracy my most recent follower.  (Tracey - I can't see your blog address on your profile so if you leave it in the comments box below and I'll pop over for a good old nose!!)

Here's my latest make, I was browsing for a box tutorial and came across this tutorial for magic boxes and look what I made:

How cute is that, even if I do say so myself.  It was so easy to make.  Although I didn't have the exact same dimensions as the tutorial my measurements so my box lid is a little bit big.  But it only took about an hour to make, mainly through me using my own measurements and having to do maths! The little inside boxes were especially easy to make, once I'd got the hang of it.  Try it out!!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Make a Bag or a Box

Do You Stack Up - Patterned Paper
