Quick Box Saturday,

Happy Saturday,

Just a quick one today as I forgot to schedule and its getting late when I am typing this!  I have a workshop and demo day tomorrow so really need to finish the prep and go to bed lol.

 A simple necklace box made using the New Sue Wilson New York collection dies.  All i did was score a 5cm edged box with a 6cm square top in white card and die cut the centre die form the Herald square die.  I then die cut the centre die fRom Madison Square and set this underneath so that the whole aperture was see through.  The two centre panels both match beautifully so its hard to se the join!

  11. Stunning box - luv it xx have a brilliant day today xx GailT xx

  12. This looks so so effective Will have to track back and re visit Sue to remind myself of these dies I know I was suitably impressed at the time because they're square in shape I can't quite see the die on my small screen (iPod!) but it all looks amazing I will have to try this one

  13. Hi John. How pretty is this box, it is perfect for any small present. I usually make square cards so Sues New York dies in particular really took my eye, Times Square is my favourite. I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets my email address wrong : ) Have a good day. Take care.

  14. Good morning John,
    John, are you trying to confuse us as some of us are easily confused. The centre of your beautiful box looks like Times Square centre to me flower, but your box is beautiful and would make the perfect gift to make a small gift more expensive and more thoughtful. Have a great day demoing where ever you are today,
    Sorry if i have got my jumpers mixed up with my jerseys,

  15. Pretty box John, whichever the die is, and I have some I could substitute anyway, now that you have been suitably generous to give us the idea in the first place.

  16. I always have trouble making boxes. I just never get the measure to right. There has to be a magic formula or something but I can't work it out! I love this adorable little box John, it's so pretty.

    Hugs Alice xx

  17. Beautiful box John and I hope you are enjoying the workshop and demos.

  18. Hi John
    What a gorgeous box. I'm blown over by Sue's new dies. Can't wait to get my hands on some of the square dies and the borders with the two-part edges. I hope your workshop and demo's went well today. Best wishes, Anne O
