Box Recipe:
Paper - Countryside Villa and Natural Botanical stacks by The Paper Studio
Images - We R Memory Keepers Die Cuts
Wooden Accents - Michaels
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Border Punches - Martha Stewart
Trim and Lace - Wrights
Ribbon - Offray
Buttons - Unknown







This was a super simple box to construct, I got out my trusty Scor-Pal, scored a few lines and was done, all that was left to do was decorate. It felt different not to do any stamping or coloring but I had had these die cuts for so long that I thought it was finally time to get them used :)
I really like how it turned out and hope you do to.
We'd really like you to step away from cards this week and come and show us a different project this week at Cooking It Up With Katie!
