Keepsake Box by Kathy

Hi, it's Kathy today, and this time I'd like to show you a Keepsake Box made using the "Sunrise" designs from this month's showcase CD
"Now That's Funky"  

 The inner box part of this measures 10cm square by 3cm deep, so it's a good size for storing all manner of jewellery, knick-knacks, or maybe those pads of paper to keep by the phone

Materials and Tools
"Sunrise"   from the Funky Hand CD "Now That's Funky" 
the designs were all printed on textured white Bazzill card 
Bazzill card in the deeper colour to make the wrap-around section of the box 
Empty cereal packet for the structural pieces 
Dies: Square doily (Spellbinders) 
Shapeabilities Sprigs (Spellbinders Die D'Lites) 
"Build a Flower #2" (Cheery Lynn)

The thing about this box is that it's much easier to make than it looks, which is always good in my book!  You just need to make the inner box from card - or cover one you already have with pretty Funky Hand paper, then make the wrap-around cover to stick it in to! 

This cover is made in the same way used for the memo blocks I've shown on here in the past, but with an extra flap at the front.  You can find instructions for the memo block on THIS page of my blog
The layout for the pieces of chipboard (grey) on the coloured card is like in the picture below.
 Remember to use a bone folder in the gaps so that the cover will fold nicely.  Turn in the margin all the way around and then add the inner cover to conceal all the workings, use the bone folder again in the hinge sections, then adhere the lower piece of ribbon in place before adding the box section.
The upper ribbon is adhered to the centre of the top section of the wrap, and then the box is ready to decorate
Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD

We'd love to see what you make with Funky Hand goodies too.....
Thanks for visiting today
