Box of Spring

Spring has finally arrived here in the Northeast! This week's JUGS challenge was to create something 3-D with a spin: it had to reflect spring. I created a 3x3 box to hold notecards (maybe). I used this tutorial by Laurie Schmidlin, or at least I tried, but had to change it a bit due to the fact my top paper didn't FIT! Measuring is not my thing, so I just trimmed it down and used it as a layer. The blue and green cs are from PTI, the dotted paper is DCWV and the jeweled brad is from SU! I used a labels one die, and three of the standard circles large dies to create the flower. I drew the leaves and cut them out by hand.

Oh how lovely! Your box is adorable! I like the paper on the lid trimmed as a separate panel. Lucky mistake for you, huh? :]

Thanks a bunch for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
