I had so many fantastic comments about the card that I made earlier in the week (shown above left), using the branch from Easter Blossoms, that I thought I would show you the box I have made to go with it. The top is made with the Scallop Square die so I made this first as it determined how big the box would be. The Scallop Square was scored on all four sides after the second scallop, which left me with a lid measuring approx 2½" square. The rest of the box was made to fit the lid, mine is 6" high but you can make it as short or tall as you want depending on what you want to put in it. Panels were made for the top, and all 4 sides, using the branch stamp on Whisper White and then layered onto Wisteria Wonder, leaving a tiny border showing. The scallops on the box lid were inked with Wisteria Wonder using a sponge dauber and a Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon loop was added to the box lid. Oh and not forgetting 3 vellum butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits, sponged with Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo, with a tiny pearl in the centre, on the front panel.
