Mini Keepsake box...

So if you seen my last post, I was so excited to find a tutorial on how to make the keepsake box on Maria's blog, but I wanted to make one smaller and so came up with this one. I made this for a dear friend Yumi's birthday. it passed a week ago, but I got to see her at the co-ed soccer game last night and thought this would be a good time to give it to her. I wanted to deck out the cover with lots of embellishments...see the flowers, butterflies and bling! love it! and her favorite color is yellow!
here's what it looks like when the box is opened up. perfect for a cute gift to fit inside to give away. I really liked how this turned out.
here's the measurements if you would like to try...
(this is for the box)
CS - 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"
score @ 1" on all sides
(this is the cover)
DP - 4 1/2" x 8 3/4"
score @ 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 6 1/2" and 7 1/2"
***decorate to your liking***
now go out there and make one!

Be Blessed,
