Little Box for "Pearl"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  I really enjoy when you call in and have a look at what I have been up to.  I also love when I pop over to your "Crafty Corners" and see all the wonderful creations. What a wealth of talent is out there.

My project today is a little box I made for my friend Pearl. It was her birthday yesterday, we always just give each other little gifts.   I got a lovey tub of Winter Pansies for my birthday which are growing nicely at my front door for all to see.  
The "Rose" on the top of the box was an experiment using Watercolour Paper.  I though it might me a bit too thick but in actual fact it made quite a nice Rose.


I made the box deep enough to take 4 little Bath fizzers, Pearl loves to soak in the bath and read a book.

Box made with white card
Spellbinder Lacy Square Die to cut the top and bottom 
American Seam Binding which I died using Distress inks
A few pearls for Pearl..............!!.  

The Seam Binding was some I had died for another project.  I used what was left on the top of the box.  Then I thought I would put some one the side.  Well I tried and tried but could I get the second lot as pale as the first! no chance.

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting, I really do appreciate you taking time to call in

  5. Hi Patricia, I always feel the boxes are the present in themselves - what's inside is the just the packaging. This is a really lovely box, and the rose looks great - as usual. Christine x

  6. Gorgeous Patricia love that rose, I've never made boxes so I think this might be on my list for Christmas pressies instead of wrapping paper
