Tower Box for Birthday


Happy New Year!

I'm starting the first post of the year with something I loved creating - a Tower Box! :) It is my first try in creating one!

This one is super cool and I followed the tutorial by Priyanka Mathur at Craftyscrappers blog. You can find it here.

The base is a metallic blue cardstock and I've mixed and matched patterned papers from Papericious 'Happy Birthday' and Nakshathra Designs 'Colorful Birthday' paper packs.

For the front design, I've used a diecut along with the sentiment heat embossed in white. It is embellished with a golden butterfly and some pearls.

The lid is kept simple with 3 matching flowers and a butterfly from Itsy Bitsy's Little Birdie brand.

This is how it opens up on the inside - a stack of boxes that can hold tiny gifts.

I filled them with tiny scrolls containing personalised messages.

While opening...

Fully opened...

For the closure mechanism, I've added silver ribbon and made a bow.
