Hope you ll hop on over and join in the fun x

This is how I arrived at my first Design Team Project -
A dear friend of mine asked me to make a gift for her
Aunt's 80th Birthday - she was born in 1934.
So I thought it would be fun to make a Keepsake Box
containing memories from that era -

Here is my project -

I constructed the box from a 12 x 12 inch sheet of 
American Crafts Card Stock.

The card was scored at 4 and 8 inches in both directions
and diagonally in the corners . I then creased along the score lines
 to make the folding box.  

I also make a lid for a 4 inch box.

I printed off papers for both the interior and exterior 
and further embellished with flowers and gems from stash.

Love and hugs 
Judith xxx
