#2 New Catalogue Week-The push pull Box!!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & project number 2 of my new Catalogue Week.
I am so excited as there is only 1 more day to go until you can order from the new catalogue!! If you do not have a copy, please just drop me an email or a text & i will pop you a copy in the post asap.

Today, i have a really cool box that i am quite pleased with. I got a gorgeous gift box at Christmas time & new straight away that i wanted to create it. I worked on my design but then decided that i wanted my version to be hexagonal. I hope you like it.

The DSP that i chose for this box is one of my absolute favorites in the new catalogue!! It is absolutely stunning! The paper is called Painted with love. The stamp set is also in the new catalogue & is called Heart Happiness. They go so well together.

This box may look hard to make but i promise you its not. Once you make one you will know doubt want to make another & another! I have also put together a template for you which you can see pictured above. It should help you with the box.

This is definatly a box that i will make again & also i have a few other ideas of what i could do with it. I hope you agree with me that it looks so nice & will have a go yourself.
