A tiny little box of fancy!

Hi friends and followers,

First of all let me thank all my followers for signing up as I see a few that are new as I appreciate all of you, I also hope I will continue to deserve your attention with what we all have in common, our favorite crafts.

Today I want to share with you a little box I made from scratch, there is something about round boxes that makes me want to add something special to it.  I like the round boxes best but, they don't love me back lol.

It was a learning process since I didn't want to go to the store and buy a round box that's my lesson for my next round box, "note to self", next time just go buy a few round boxes ahead of time.  Much easier to cover with the paper we love, than making the frame, lid and pray it all fits.......:0), lesson learned.

So this round box is not very big as it measures 4 inches (10cm) diameter and  4.5 inches (10.5cm) high.  It took a few flowers made from scratch I had made a few months ago.  I used a doily die cut on hand (Die-Versions Valentine lace), but it doesn't matter which one you have this one is 3 inches X 3 inches. I have folded and inked the edges of 8 doilies.  The next step was to adhere all round triangles onto a cut out circle for the base of about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.  I needed 8 of the circles folded twice to create a multi layered full circle. 

I woke up with this idea in mind and had to just go ahead and try it.  While I was adding a backing of Tulle.....is when I decided to add this embellishment to a round box as a topper.  So this creation was a fun and interesting as it was progressing slowly.  

So here it is:





Hoping that was inspirational to you.  This is ideal for small handout presents, to a very special person in your life.  This person will definitely see how special she is to you
Thank you for visiting, hope to see you again soon
Have a great day, make it count!
