Crafting musketeers challenge 42: boxes

This is my design creation for Crafting musketeers challenge 42: boxes. Please click on the link to see the lovely creations by the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

Recently I bought a couple of kraft boxes from The Works, thinking they would come in handy and so I decided to use one of them. I sometimes have a look in TKMaxx to see if they have any cheap craft items and I found a little folder of 8 baby cards ... I wasn't really bothered about the actual cards, although I might be able to use bits of them some time, but was interested in the lovely craft patterned folder they were in. I used pieces of this to cut up and decorate the lid of the box, colouring the base with a fluorescent spectrum noir pen and wrapping round with the three different coloured washi tapes.

I printed the lovely box/bow image kindly supplied by The Stamping Boutique, sponsor of the challenge, colouring with fluorescent spectrum noir pens and edging with one of the washi tapes. I decorated the sides of the lid with some of the upcycled patterned kraft card and washi.

I've just taken a photo in daylight and it shows the fluorescent colours a lot more accurately ... you might need sunglasses on!
