I have a version of a magic box that I am excited to share with you today. I have seen some beautiful boxes that others have created so I decided to try my own little twist on one : ) The two major differences I did was, I used matchboxes instead of open shelves and I added an extra flap/panel that closes with a magnet instead of using ribbon to hold the box closed.
For the inside I wanted you to see that the drawers opened just in case you might like to include a little surprise inside : )

Instructions: Take a piece of card stock 6 3/4″ x 12″ and score and the 3″, 6″ and 9″ marks. Cut another piece of card stock 6 3/4″ x 5″ and score at the 3″ mark and attach to the first piece so you have 5, 3″ wide panels.
To create the individual drawers make match book boxes with the following dimensions 5 9/16″ square and score on all sides at the 1 1/2″ mark. For the wrapper of the drawers, cut a piece of card stock 9″ x 4 1/4″. To score the card stock, make a mark on the paper at 2 3/4″, and then measure another 1 9/16″ and make your second mark. Repeat this again continuing along the piece of paper and then score on the marks.
For the DP both inside and outside, simply cut pieces 6 1/2″ x 2 3/4″.
The topper is made using 4 pieces of card stock 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ rounded at the top. I made myself a pattern so I could round the top of all 4 the same. Measure up 1 inch from the bottom and draw a line and then at the top, mark a point at the center. Join all 4 together to from a triangle and then score on the lines you just made.
Decorate the box topper by cutting 8 individual die cuts from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die and then stamp, die cut and assemble your flowers and attach to your project. Lightly distress ink the edges and add any further embellishments as desired.
Thanks so much for stopping by today : ) I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
