Not a card

Morning peeps, I love Thursdays...nearly the weekend!! Yay!!
This is a particularly good one as I get to share my project for our new

As You Like It challenge and this time it's

" Your Favourite Not a Card" (don't forget to tell us why?)

I chose to make another slip cover box. I really enjoy making these, they are really easy to do, look expensive and make a great alternative to a decorated gift bag or conventional box. Added to that it's a great excuse to use up those "special" double sided papers that have been gathering dust for in my case anyway!!

First off I must mention the adorable bunny that is Bently (with his bunny on this occasion) who was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers. The box was made entirely from First Edition Floral Pavilion 12x12.

Here you can get a better look at the pretty interior and how it slides together.

We are off to play at these challenges

Love this tiny adorable bunny (clutching his baby bunny so closely). As always, fab coloring. These boxes look very intriguing and are so elegant too. Will be a terrific way to present a gift, but just having the box to display...awesome! Clever you with these designs & using up some double sided paper. TFS & Happy wkend.
