Keepsake Box

Hello again everyone,

For my project this week, I have designed a neat little keepsake box.  I thought this might be a nice idea that a Bride and Groom could use to store some of their memories from their special day.

CLD86-Full

I started by making a traditional box where the top of the box opened and thought that it needed just a little more flair so I also added a drawer for some extra storage.   I used a magnet which I sandwiched between the layers of paper to keep the top of the box closed and the drawer is based on a match box but just bigger.  Once I  had both made I glued them together and then wrapped DP around both the hide the seam.

Here is a closer look at the top which I decorated using some of my favorite Cheery Lynn dies.  A full list of what was used can be found below.  The rose was created using the Build A Flower #3 die.  I thought the distressing on the DP made the rose look so elegant for this special keepsake box : )
