It drew blood.




This weeks PTW challenge is to create a box from two sheets of card. I'm not quite sure where I went wrong with the measurements but mine looks nothing like the examples by the DT!!! Oh well, it is a box and I did use the measurement given so please excuse the "odd" shape.
Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong and I even pricked my finger with one of the needles from the BIA kit (it's a huge needle!), and please also excuse the blood on the lid! Good job I was making this for me and not as a gift.
Anyways, I am using this to store the glitter glues that I never use. I couldn't decide which way round it would sit on my shelf so I made two labels, just to be on the safe side lol. I went for a hinged lid for ease of access and knowing me I would only go and lose the lid if it wasn't attached!
I used:
Paper - Laura Ashley - Dovecraft (again!)
Bookplates - Thick Cuts die
Cardstock - Papermill
Brads - Papermania
Ribbon - Local craft shop

This is lovely and nothing went wrong, i think we all used the measurements for the small box and you used the large box measurements thats all!

I too used the bog box measurements and mine came out just like this too! I thought I'd messed it up as well! Gorgeous box though, wish mine had come out this well :) Stacey ~x~
