Over the top little box

Here is a little Christmas box. I think I went a bit over the top with embellishing it....
It was just the perfect project to use up all these bits of left over Christmas paper. (Sorry in places it went a bit messy, - it's quite fiddly to make. I think if I did it again I would make a better job of it...)

The little box maybe doesn't look like much, but it opens in a really clever way and I was rather intrigues by the construction. It is just perfert for holding a few choice chocolates


A tutorial on how to make a box like this and a really pretty example can be found here

I think it's just perfect, not sure you can overembellish. It is a rather neat little construction... yet another thing to try one day!!

I was just going to say there is nothing over the top about your box until I read Netty's comment LOL. It is so beautiful, and all that detailed stitching is gorgeous, will have a look at that tutorial now and just hope its not too complicated. XX

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
