Blissful Box

The third challenge from the Inklings cyberstamp (yes, I know I am doing them out of order, but this is the order I made them in) was to create a box based on this one by Josee. For some reason I got it in my head to make it fit our standard sized cards... and then I decided I could enlarge it a bit more and fit some envelopes in too! So mine isn't as cute as the original but I still quite like it. But look ma, no stamping! Shall have to remedy that when I make cards to go in it wink. Anyway, here's a close up of the side so you can see how I did the handle.
All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate
Stamp sets: none!
Ink: none!
Accessories: Aged Copper Hodgepodge, white gel pen, 1 3/8" circle punch, round tab punch, Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon
Show watched while creating: Stargate Atlantis

This looks FABULOUS Carol. I love making boxes! Love how you did the handle & that berry bliss paper is so delicious, you didn't need any stamping (gulp!). Best wishes, Di

love it Carol! Now why didn't I think of something logical like that to keep the lid on when carrying it!
