Bear in a box

Hello to all my crafty friends,

just finished my latest card, which is for my Mother in Laws birthday.

It is a pop up box design which I made using my Ultimate pro, and the flowers and ect are cut on my die cutting machine,

Here is the back with an envelope in which to put some money
I will print off a personalised greeting and attach it in the middle.

This is a close up of the flowers, I made them using my xcut dies. The papers are from the Promises pad from LOTV and this was an ideal project for the scraps I had left.  The purple glitter card is from coordination's. and I used a weathered wood Tim Holtz distress pad to ink all my edges and tie it all together.

One thing that I like about this project is that it folds completely flat for posting, which is essential for this recipient.I shall put it in a stiff envelope with a bit of tissue for padding.

I have wanted to have a go at one of these boxes for ages and was so surprised as how easy it was to put together.  In fact the main box requires no measuring at all just a sheet of A4 and a score board. 
When I get chance I will put the instructions how to do the basic box below.

Just have a go you will find it so much fun

Happy Crafting and bye for now.
