Box for cards

Good evening bloggers

Want to say thanks so much for anyone that visits my blog, whether you leave a comment or not doesn't matter as any time spent here I'm so grateful for 

I made a box today out of 12 x 12 card given to me by my mom.  I needed a large box to put large cards in as I've no storage for them.

I had a box scoring board where you just score each edge and hey Presto you have a box lid and then you do the same for the base. 

I used and decoupaged image from Hunkydory little dresses mini pad and matted her onto some kraft foiled card which I got from a online craft shop, brand DCWV and used dies from same shop called creative dies.    The bottom layer is a x-cut background die from eBay. A bargain 

The fairy die is die cut out of silver Mirri board and matted onto die from botanic lane orchards collection using the foiled kraft card and white card which is foiled too with hearts. 

Flowers are botanic orchard dies and spellbinders rose creation die.  

The lace , leaves , ribbon and gems are all bits from my crafty stash. 

I also realised that I can put so much more than cards into the box, quite a few bits and bobs lol.

Have a lovely evening
