Silhouette box

Boxes are fun to make and great to fall back on if you have a small present to wrap and nothing to wrap it in. This one holds about five small square cards but I haven’t made any to go in it. In fact, the box piece was left over from a class last summer!

I’ve decorated it with some Summer Picnic paper, Pocket Silhouettes, some doodling and some buttons. The paper is simply shredded printer paper. The money I save on shredded tissue paper I can spend on stamps, see?

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Whisper White
Paper: Summer Picnic
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Old Olive marker, Earth Elements buttons, Scallop Edge Punch, ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – Pumpkin Pie, crafters’ toolkit
