Magic Boxes part one.......

It's Fabulous Funky Friday again and I'm all boxed up and ready to go over at Bubbly Scrumptious.......

......and I am still rocking these Purple Prima papers and embellishments..the words are from Darkroom Door and come on a handy strip of good quality card, ready to cut to your chosen size.




I might have gone a little overboard with the stickles and dots!!

Somehow I fell apon these Magic Boxes that once opened reveal 4 small boxes inside (see previous post HERE) and as you know I fell in love immediately. leah has kindly let me share her instructions with you. So please click HERE and leave her a nice comment.

I can't say it enough...once you get the hang of them they are soooooo easy!!

Having mastered the art of making the lids I decide to make two the same size and create an acetate tube. One end opens so that you can pull out the money, voucher present etc......I think a £20 pound note would match these colours perfectly!




My acetate is running out and I bought that lot on sale......I hope it has made a come back this year with Christmas Cards I need more..more..more!!

As for the boxes I am brimming with ideas and next Friday I will have another type of magic box but with a twist or should I say a surprise!!


Love and purple stickles

Your magic box is beautiful. I,too, made one a month or so ago. Happened upon Life As Lou's blog by blog hopping. I created one that night! It's such a great project and is perfect to hold small goodies and give as a gift. Thanks for displaying yours. BTW, I LOVE your blog. I'm a follower!
