Book in a box.



Make my Monday's challenge this week is to  ' Make a  box in a Christmas style'.

This little box is shaped like a book and is 2.5 x 3.5  x1 inch in size.
I spent a bit of time tearing decoupatch paper, very theraputic when the computer is in a 'go slow' mode.
 Had a load of fun sticking down the small pieces.
 Inside , I made a pull out book, it is decorated on both sides, using a variety of stamps,  pictures  etc.   This is the best photo  of many, I hope  it  gives  you an idea of the inside.
It is now parcelled up and ready for posting to a crafty friend, who I cannot persuade to use her blog.

Jusr found the Happy Daze blog's December challenge is gifts and  tags. So the box will pay a visit here as well.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
