Moving Along With The Times - Make a Box and Decorate it..


Time for Team B at MAWTT this week.

This week Karina is our hostess and her challenge is -

Make a box and decorate it

I am at home with my parents in the UK and so this is the first time I have done a MAWTT post from my homeland..needless to say I did make the box before I left!

It foxed me a bit at first, but I looked through my Silhouette library and came up with a matchbox template.

I cut it out of American Crafts paper and assembled it, which was much easier than expected, as the Silhouette scores it all for you.

I added some spotty ribbon also by American Crafts and a precious WHSmith flower/brad - voila! Box complete.

I am going to use it to give a friend earrings for her birthday.

Here is another view for you -

Inspired? Well pop on over the MAWTT and see what amazing boxes Team B have created..mine is simple town compared to what the ladies have been up to!
