Birthday Box

Good Morning - We have had thaw over the weekend and can see green grass which is unusual for this time of year in Michigan. There is more snow forecast though so not getting too optimistic!

Friday was James's Girlfriend - Liz's birthday and he had bought her lots of little pill cases which he filled with soppy little love notes. He asked me to make him a box to put them all in and also wanted a card making so I decided to combine them in one!

I made a set of drawers box and added an easel on top.

I made 4 matchbox style boxes and glued these together on a base and lid of matching card. Pearl brads were used as handles for the drawer. I then made and easel card the same dimensions as the box and adhered this to the top. I used Love Never Melts Poppy Stamps set  colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and matted this onto matching card and design papers from my stash. I decorated the bottom part of the Easel with the same card and paper.

Using a Memory Box die, James had made these little shopping bags to put the pill cases in inside the boxes:

I took one and matted it to match with the card design, added a stamped heart and sentiment it was then used it as a stopper for the easel as you can see here:

Once completed the drawers were filled and I am told she loved it!
