Happy Mother's Day 3

Hello everyone I hope you are having a good day.

Today I have made something a little bit different, a book box. I followed a wonderful tutorial from Whiff of Joy at http://whiffofjoy.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2011-01-17T12%3A00%3A00%2B01%3A00&max-results=7 for a book box. It did take a long time though and was a little bit tricky. You needed three hands to put the folds together!

I decorated it with punched and paper flowers and a lovely image from Create with TLC at http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/ that I coloured with copic’s. To finish I added a tag, some jewels, pearls and some ribbon.

I hope you like it Lynn
