Keepsake Box Tutorial

Yesterday I told you that Isabellas' mum wanted an Advent Calendar for herself.

 But what she really wanted was the small boxes to store items in.

So I thought I would  use another Spellbinders Box die that I have.

The  Petal Top Box  makes a bigger size and by making  my base box  from 14" Centura Pearl  it would hold nine  of the small ones.

The Diamante Swirl is from Want2Scrap

The video is the Keepsake BoxTutorial
To these boxes  I added  Mica Flakes  and the result  was very sparkly and feminine.... and one  I am sure that  will be very much enjoyed.

I used the Alphabet shapes to write out the words
"Keepsake Box"
and added them to the box lid.

All the Spellbinders I have used are from Save On Hobbies  and the price is amazing for these large dies.

The box die will only go through the larger cutting areas and not the smaller Big Shot or Cuttlebug.

I have to say that  I love the  finished box and I  will look forward to giving it to  Kylie for her to keep  all her little treasures in.
