The Tuck Box

Hi Everyone
I have been working on a few projects and thought I'd share this one with you all today.
This cute box is called a Tuck Box, made using an AccuCut die and white CS weight paper. I wanted to work this up and make it cute and had a few things on my work area that were begging me to be used. So, here is the cute little box, decorated. It would be perfect for a smaller gift, like earrings jewelry, a gift card, or whatever you can come up with.

The box measures from below the handle is 4 3/4" X 4 1/2". The base is smaller that the top and it is 2 3/4". This box is about 2" deep front to back. The handle sits up about 2 1/2". Hope you were able to follow all those measurements. LOL

I used some green mottled CS on the front and then sponged Distressed Ink  Bundled Sage to the edges and to the base of the handle. Next to give the handles some personality, I wound cord around each handle. It took about 10' per handle and I really like the look the finished handles give this box. I used a flourish and added some beautiful Parisian Mist Glitter (G1037) from Sparkle N Sprinkle to it. Since I had that medallion sitting around for a while, I added the pretty roses to the center and added it to the box front. Next I added a few roses to the flourish to finish it off this box.

What a darling gift holder this is.

Thanks for stopping in today.

See you soon
