My Sisters Magic Box!

Well I have to say when I saw this box I just had to make one...it wasn't easy but I got the hang of  it and let me tell it turned out a lot better than I could've ever hoped for. I made this one for my sister wedding shower and stuck a rolled up bill in the middle.


Here is the outside of the box. Now the box is quite small but perfct to hide money in :) The gold paper used were scraps from a pile I had sitting just waiting to be used.
Click on all the pics to enlarge for more detail.

The woman who inspired this box Elaine, has a website and for those of you who love surprise type boxes you need to check her stuff out. Here is the LINK-Magic-box

Here is the inside of the box once the lid is removed...the flowers are nicely bunched before it falls into a beautiful bouncy floral arrangment. I used the cuttlebug folder for a more elegant and subtle look considering the color I chose for the flowers. Each flower was paid much attention too so when you click on the photos you'll see all the detail work.


This picture allows you see the flowers fall away from the center. The center of each flower I used light great crystal rhinestones. The two shades of cardstock I used for the small flower really stood out nicely once I added the glitter.

My sister liked and let me borrow it to put it up on my blog. I had forgotten to take pictures of it before I gave it her. Now she is married as of Oct. 23rd. and is on her honeymoon. I'll be posting a pic or two of my DD and myself as we were bridesmaids at her wedding. I hope you all like the box as much as I do. This was in fact alot more work than I expected but it turned out beautifully....Dontcha think :)
