Something Beginning with 'B'

Hello everyone and a Happy New Year to you all - I hope that it's a good one. We are trying to settle back into some sort of routine in time for them all going back to school and nursery on Wednesday. I can't wait, lol. Funny, the older two haven't been that bad these holidays but Wee Steven is a handful, lol.

I have made this box for my mum. I got a new printer for Christmas and thought I would put it to some use. I would also like to enter it into the challenge over at One Stop Craft where the theme is Something Beginning with 'B'. I got the template from Splitcoast Stampers and it can be found HERE. It was really quite quick to make. I did notice that one person commented that they couldn't get the lid to fit...this was the same with me when I followed the measurements for the lid but if you change the sizes a wee bit. I did a 12x12 box and for this it is actually a quarter of a quarter inch - if that makes any sense, lol.

I used 2 pieces of purple cs and a sheet of dp with lilac through it - can't remember the name now. I used dp from a DCWV pack on the inside to matt and layer my photos. I tied it with lilac ribbon and added some flower sprigs from my stash. I wrote a small message on the inside of the lid.

Thanks for taking the time to look. Hope you like it

This is a fabulous box Suzanne. I love the way it explodes outwards when you take the lid off. Such a wonderful way to share and display your photographs. Thanks for joining us at the One Stop Craft Challenge.
