Afternoon Tea Box

Tonight's project is a box made to hold either the Mother's Day wall hanging or the mini scrapbook.

It's actually quite a simple design. The bottom is made out of chocolate chip card stock and the top is made out of a piece of Afternoon Tea designer paper. Around the box is a belly band made out of wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon adorned with a couple of flowers from the pretties kit dyed to match the colors in the designer paper and held together with a clear large rhinestone brad from the pretties kit.

Obviously this is a top view of the box.

And here is a side view.

At the class we will also be stamping a tag made with the Live Your Dream set, but since I do not have the set yet, I wasn't able to make a sample.

This photo shows the underside of the belly band. I first wrapped the ribbon around the box and used SNAIL to temporarily adhere the end together, then I slipped the belly band off the box, punched it with my crop-a-dial and used the rhinestone brad to at once attach the flowers to the belly band and hold the belly band together permanently.

And here is a view of the open box with the Chipboard Coaster wall hanging inside. At the class we will also stamp coordinating tissue so that the gift will be that much more special.

I have one more project for this class to show you and I will do that tomorrow. As you can probably imagine, it will continue in the Mother's Day theme and will coordinate with the other projects. Until tomorrow.
