Ribbon Box

I'd just like to say a big HELLO and WELCOME to two lovely new followers Sarah and Diane.
Thank you so much for joining us.
I had a brilliant time at a workshop on Saturday at Whichcraft uk.
 Hop over to the web site and have a look at the
 new "Classic Collection,"  cards that have the edge!!
 scallop concertina cards and the new scallop shutter cards 
all exclusive to them.

At the workshop we altered a ribbon box, it starts out as a flat pack and folds into this lovely box.
They are 65p each from their shop.

To save drying time Paula had already painted the boxes with emulsion paint.

We covered two sides with patterned paper and two sides plain.
Stamped the letters onto the patterned paper and mounted them on to the stamped squares.
I glazed mine with glossy accents later but things always seem to curl up when I use it, thats why they look a bit up and down.
I was having a really funny "senior moment" day and put my letters on upside down,
then when I went to buy another box to do later,
 I made this silly comment "they're not the boxes we used they only have 3 holes in them". DA!!! the rest just needed punching out. LOL we had a good laugh though.
I'm sorry I didn't take notice of which stamps and papers we used.

Thanks for stopping by
Love Cherie   //*.*\\
