My Fold Out Box


This is the box I  made for myself after the one I posted yesterday. I just fell in love with this when I saw it - the fold out was so unique in that it was all one piece. It is a small box - measures approximately 2 1/2 inches square when closed and 7 1/2 inches long when opened - but it is so cute and holds lots of goodies! I used a patterned paper with a scene so that I could divide it into sections for each side of the box. I then used the reverse side pattern for the inside. The flower on the belly band is made from CS and the little butterfly was cut from the patterned paper. I love this box and am making one for Jim's birthday with a surprise inside! This may turn out to become my new 'magic box' template!

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! We are to get some thunderstorms in this part of WI - we do need the rain. Wishing you a happy weekend!
