I love old books, so when I saw this project at SVG Cuts, I knew I had to make one. This book box comes as part of the Spirits of Christmas Past kit, which has 5 projects in total. I had a few weeks there where I didn't have a sharp blade for my Cricut so couldn't cut anything, I swear I had withdrawals!
This box stands 5" tall and is 4.5" wide, with a depth of just under 2.5". I used regular craft card for constructing the base of the box and used the Twig and Berry paper range from Kaisercraft for decorating the panels. I've embellished with just a simple cluster of flowers and some twine.
The edges of the book have been liberally inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and the inner box panels and the side page panel have been embossed and then treated with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The little draw slides out easily and is very roomy. I am making a 3" x 4" mini album that will fit nicely inside, hopefully I will have photos to share in a few days.
Here's sweet little Maisie, by Mo Manning. She is coloured on Kraft card using Prismacolor pencils. I am a little embarrassed to admit I have put my Lyra pencils aside in favour of the Prismacolor, I just love their creamy texture and they blend so beautifully, but mostly because Prisma has almost twice the colour range.
