In Style Stamps - Method Monday

Every Monday on In Style Stamps there will be a tip, trick, tutorial or technique with a challenge from one of the DT members. This week it was the turn of the boss , Virginia. Virginia has shown a tutorial for a lidded box. All the details are here on the In Style blog. Great tutorial for an easy to make box. Must be if I can do it!!

Here is mine

This is the top of the box , the lid. For the actual box I used Bazill cardstock, it's a bit more robust than other cardstock and keeps it's shape, just right for a box. I have used Collage Press -Sugar Plum series paper and the main image is Suzie Q. I thought I'd use her so I can hide all my craft shopping receipts in the box!! She's been coloured with promarkers. To embellish the lid I used some ribbon and gems.

Here is the side view of the box. I used some of the same paper and a Martha Stewart punch to make the strip along the sides and then covered the top part with some of the same ribbon used on the lid.

Why not have a change from cards and have a go at this quick and simple box. I'd love to see lots of different boxes.

You can see the tutorial and all the details here
