Crazy about boxes!

I absolutely LOVE making boxes, bags and other fun "gift giving" containers. Here's yet another great box project I created.
When constructing containers out of paper, it really does make a difference when using a good quality cardstock. Crafter's Companion USA has the hookup!!! They offer both plain white Construction Cardstock and high quality heavyweight Designer Card Packs!

I used the 11x17 Timeless Card Pack for this project. Each pack comes with 20 sheets (10 designs x 2 sheets.)

If you have stamps (of course you do!), you can make custom tissue paper. I used Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to stamp some butterflies from the Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colors stamp set on a piece of plain white tissue paper.

On the top of the box, I layered a piece of the Timeless cardstock on top of a slighter larger piece of cardstock that I edged with a Gold Leafing Pen.

Here's a close-up of the drawer pull-knob. I made it with some of my beading supplies. Super simple, yet really brings an extra bit of elegance as well as functionality.

This project was another one I did that aired earlier this month on the Home Shopping Network.

 Happy Crafting!
