Book Style Gift Box - Guest Designer at Cheery Lynn Designs

It's time for my third project for my guest designer spot at Cheery Lynn Designs
Today I'm sharing a gift box that is disguised as a book!
All My Crafts - Anything But a Card
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Get Inky - Die Cuts
Stampin For The Weekend - Button Up (1 entry only)
Paper Playtime - Buttons or Brads
Sandy's Crafty Creations - Flowers
One Crazy Stamper - Flowers (5 entries only)
By The Cute and Girly - May Flowers (1 entry per type of craft)
Use Your Stuff - Focus on Flowers
Stamp With Fun - Self Made Flowers
Love To Create - Flowers (3 entries only)
Top Tip Tiesday - Box Clever

Project Recipe:
Paper - Watercolor Bouquet by K and Co
Sentiment - Flonz Stamps
Buttons and Button Brads - Making Memories
Pearls - Liquid Pearls by Ranger
Dies - Flourish Leaf Strip, Mini Fanciful Flouish, Carnivale Border, Medium Rose, Mini Dimensional Butterflies and Card Maker Rectangles

When you open up the book you discover a place to present a little gift.

I used borders from the Carnivale Border to create the frame around the opening inside the book.

You can't see well on the photo but I scored the parts of the book where the pages would be to give the look of a real book.

I added this great sentiment to the front and surrounded it with leaves, flowers and butterflies.
Be sure to drop back next week for my final project as May's Guest Designer.
