Box Card

Hello everyone, today I bring you a special little box card (made this card for my Mum's Birthday). It very simple to make. 

Above is the front of the box. I have used kraft card to make the box then ink all the edges.

Above is the front & one of the sides of the box. I have placed a pearl (from Inky Impressions store) on each of the butterflies.

When you take the lid off the sides fall down to reveal what is in side the box (above). In my box it just happens to be Ice Skating Rachel on her very own ice skating ring.

I have cut out a circle place it on pop dots then used mod podge for the look of the ring with glitter in it. Then I have used some small roses to edge around it. 

To make it extra special I have left the ends of the pattern paper open for pockets and made some tags to put in them. They all have something extra special stamps on them. I have also cut out flower shapes in each tag and place a small pearl ( from Inky Impressions store) in each to make the centre of the flower.

If you would like to learn how to make one pop over to Inky Impressions now for the details.

My box card will be entered into the following challenges:

All the best
