No cards allowed!



Time for another challenge at CRAFTY RIBBONS and this time the theme ANYTHING BUT A CARD was chosen by the lovely Charlotta.
My project for the challenge is a fancy Christmas Box. Over at Crafty Ribbons you can buy button boxes. They come flat packed so just a few folds, no glue and you are away:0 And being flat packed makes they super easy to decorate!
This is how the box looks when put together but still naked:)

For my box I used black buttons, black velvet bling ribbon (I love this ribbon, check it out HERE) and a sheet of silver and white Christmas paper. I lined the inside of the box with matching paper. The ribbon was attached with tacky glue. I made the flower bow from little bits of left over ribbon, folded in half and sealed with the large white button. I stuck lots of black buttons on the snowflakes of the papers.
Be sure and check out the design teams projects, there are lots of boxes on display and loads of other goodies to get your creative juices going!!.
The prize this time is a choice of either bags below:)


I would like to enter this box into
Paper Pretties - buttons
Cooking it Up with Katie - different fold, make it fancy and flowers
Fab'n'funky - mostly white
Top Tip Tuesday - anything Christmas
Christmas Inspirations - bows
Hanna and friends - pimp something (pimped this box)

Hi Pinky

A gorgeous box .. .. I love the ribbon flower.

Thanks for your comment the other day about the roses on my card.

Yes they do make for a bulky card. Sometimes I put them in a box and other times I just use an oversized envelope and find they fit in just fine.

I hope all is good with you. Are you still mega busy?

If you are anything like me Christmas is coming round quicker than I can make the cards.

Love Jules xx

Hiya Pinky, OMG BUttons, Buttons, Buttons, Love! Great box and what a great idea to use the buttons as part of the pattern! It looks fab.

Thanks for the question about if you can colour images with PanPastels, Well I was wondering the very same thing. I've seen some amazingly detailed artwork with PanPastels so it might be possible if you had the time and patiences to learn how - just as with any colouring.
Have a fab weekend. Kim
