Spotlight Choice at City Crafter
It's time for another challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar and this week we are giving you a theme challenge! We want to see projects for any Celebration you would like!
Now I'll warn you, there are lots of photos on this post as I wanted to show you as much detail as I could.
This project is the one I taught at Personal Scrapbook (a local store) a couple of weeks ago and there was a kit spare so I decided to make it again for this challenge.

This is the card with it's decorative band.
The card is 6" square and a gatefold style.
Inside the card.
This decorative band goes around the card and is designed to stay up when the card is slightly open. I made a rosette flower using my Daisy border punch first and then scoring in between each scallop and then in the center of each scallop and then fan folding.
This is the box. It is an "All In One" box with the "lid" actually being attached to the bottom of the box. I saw the design on Split Coast Stampers and altered it a little to make a larger box.
To match the band on the card I made a band to go around the box with a coordinating rosette flower on the top.
Here you can see the box as you start to pull the lid up. It looks a little like a Christmas Cracker to me and it can fit 3 Ferrero Rocher chocolates in it! (I tried :))
This opening gets larger the more you pull the lid upwards so you can easily drop in a few goodies.
Anyway if you made it to the end I hope you liked it and I'd love it if you played along with our "Let's Celebrate" challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar this week!
