Love Note box

This cute little box was demonstrated at the recent convention in Brisbane and the template is now available on the demonstrator website. I made this box at my upline's house on Friday night, the lovely Yvonne Campbell (see her link). I almost straight copied the one Yvonne did, except for a couple of little things. You should check out her blog, if you haven't already. She has recently updated it and it looks beautiful. She also has a funny story on her blog, about Friday night when I was there, when her dd2 locked herself in her brother's room!

The box could be used as a gift box to put something in. It perfectly fits the pre-cut small cards and envelopes Stampin' Up! sell (called 'Love Notes' on page 132 of catalogue, which are only $13.50 for 20 cards and 20 envelopes). Supplies -
Stamp: Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranite, Whisper White off-cuts
Ink: Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranite
Accessories: Blue Bayou double-stitched ribbon, Crop-a-dile, jumbo eyelet, flower (from Pretties kit), scallop punch, paper snips, crystal effects, dimensionals, mini dots, bone folder (to score the lines).
Yvonne suggested that I put a little bit of blue bayou cardstock underneath the eyelet and then put crystal effects inside the eyelet, which makes it look like 'bling'! The scallop punch was also used to punch and then move slightly and re-punch to give a slightly different effect. Great ideas Yvonne!
