My project is for Just us Girls Challenge. I used the template from Kelleigh Retzlaff. Its a triagular box that I had to make larger for the little treasure I got my mom. I dont usually do templates and it took a couple tries to get it all enlarged properly but Got it! Instead of making it open from the ends I used a MS punch to make a decorative edge and made it open and close from the top. I then punched and ran the pink strip thru the dotted swiss folder. I used a scalloped punch on the burgandy to make the flowers. I also made baby ones for the tag. I used the nestie # 13 for the tag and ran the burgundy thru the dotted folder also. If you look at pics below you can see that I made it double sidded. I made a loose floppy bow out of the hand dyed seam binding and added some beads cuz my mom loves beads! Finished it off with some little "diamonds" for some added glitz! This is just perfect for my mom cuz she loves vintage styles with flowers and beads!
