Today is a very memorable and exciting day for me, not because its April Fools Day.......but because I got notification that the 4 project cards I submitted to Kaszazz have been accepted as Demonstration Projects...woohooo......
I have been in Queensland 1 year today (I moved from SA).....Yes April Fools Day. Its hard to believe I have been here one year already, how time flies, and people said I wouldn't make it.
Now to todays project...
I gave myself a bit of a challenge today, I created a box with a flip lid using origami fold....great to put keepsakes in, photos, a mini fold album or even cards and given as a gift...It ties up with a ribbon on the side and the top flap opens like a book cover......half of the challenge was deciphering the instructions..well they were not written instructions ..but diagrams.
The rollagraph "Modern Butterflies" (26123) Jumbo Wheel was used around the edge of the inside part of the box..The Jumbo wheel was the perfect height for the edge of the box..... Of course I stamped the Bazzill before I folded it. I used Lyra Aquacolor Crayons to colour the butterflies(4540)
I used 1 1/2 sheets of Petunia (4400)12 x 12 Bazzill , half a sheet of Circle Dragonflies (47650) SB Paper 12 x 12 from our Gelati Range, some white card for decorating and some ribbon from 'Snow White" range (9599)., Glossy Accents, Dreams Vellum Quote (4410) "Life stamp (4131KI)
Of course you dont have to use a rollagraph on this box you can have the Bazzill plain or use double sided paper. The finished dimensions of the box are approximately 13cm x 13cm and 6 cm depth.
Pictures arnt as good as they should be as I had to rush them, As hubby got all romantic he had a special meal organised at the dining table with all the fine heirloom dishes and cutlery, the works....... (spoilt).
Here is the side view of the box showing the rollagraph wheel used.... the tricky part was to , make sure the butterflies ended up being the right way up when the Bazzill was folded.
This is inside of the box - lid open
