Craft Challenge 110 - Boxes

Morning all it's time for another challenge at C.R.A.F.T. this weeks challenge is to make a box. As usual we a fantastic sponsor  Toucan Scraps The prize they offer is a $2 coupon that will cover the cost of a silhouette/paper pack/gift box from her shop.Also if the winner uses something from Toucan Scraps in his/her project, she would be willing to make it a $5 coupon for that winner. As an added bonus she is also offering our followers  a 10% off coupon valid for the week of the challenge to help you towards getting one of her lovely products. The new coupon code is CRAFT10, for 10% off Toucan Scraps Products and is valid from July 7 to July 13th.

Onto my box I decided to make this little box using my nesties after seeing a gorgeous version on Karens Blog,it was so easy to make I followed the instructions here. The papers are MME which I again got in my grab box from the lovely Sarah at SJ Crafts, unsual colors for me but I'm really please with it. Tilda is coloured with promarkers and lots of stickles on her wings, the swirls are cut with a Marianne die and then stickles. The flowers have also had the stickles treatment although it doesn't show in the photo. Around the middle of the box I have used some paper lace from Paper Cellar colored to match and then some seam binding, with which I've made a bow and used a pearl brad to hold it together.

I would like to enter my box into the following challenges:
Charisma - All about flowers
Flutter By Wednesday - Open Challenge
Truly Scrumptious - Things with Wings
