Hidden secrets box 2

Good evening again bloggers! 

I hope your weekend has been good so far.  

I'd also like to welcome my new follower hazel.  Thank you so much for taking the time to follow me I truly appreciate it! 

I've had a busy day today.  Got up this morning and realised that my youngest son 17 yrs had lied to me and had gone to a house party and not his girlfriends house like I thought.  Oh boy I wasn't happy lol.  
Then after grounding him I decided to take my 6 mth puppy Toby for a walk down the park.  Only managed to stay there for half hour as this weird guy kept following me and staring at me, this gave me the Jeebies so decided to head back home and craft lol. 

I decided to create one of these hidden secrets box.  I adore them and made one last year in a shabby chic kind of style.  This one I made more girly and used a flower fairy decoupage topper for the top of the box. 

The box is made of card stock from hunkydory. Ribbon, toppers for the drawers were from create and craft. 

I lined the inside with some paper I had in my stash and the rest of the embellishments were from eBay.  I'm a sucker for a bargain lol. 

I preferred the one from last year to this one.   I hope you like it? 

 Thank you all for your comments and thoughts on my blog.  It's so nice to be back. 

If you did want to try this project out for yourself here is the tutorial:

Thank you all

Good morning Sharon, oh dear you didn't have a good start to yesterday, here's hoping you have a much better day today.
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog about my box for the gift.

Now your Hidden Secrets box is fabulous! This would make a wonderful gift fill with little bits in the drawers.

Good Morning Sharon, I notice my sister Hazel has posted above me.
She will be asking me how to make this box when I see I just know it. That`s Hazels kind of thing as well as mine. I did try one the last time you showed this design. I am afraid I did not make as good a job as you. Must try again as it would be handy.
Hope you and your son are back on good terms
Have a Great Day

Fantastic project. This box is a stunner. Very beautiful.

You certainly did have an interesting day. I just glad that the weirdo didn't follow you home. He sounds so creepy.

Wow, this box is so clever! That must have taken some really delicate construction. I love the way you've decorated it too and the flower fairy topper is the perfect touch. :)
