City Crafters "Magical Box"



Hello ...
It's Tuesday and once again the start of  new challenge at City Crafter and this week sweet Kirsty is hosting for us and has asked that we make a Magical Box ...
Now I have to confess that when I first got the brief I was worried ... Heck these things are so little and fiddly I thought ... Yet I've seen so many of you clever people make them ... So I did what any wise person would do ... I left it ... ha! ha! 
And then when I was incapacitated with my back problem ... I had time to sit a while and think about it ... and as it happened I had just the template I needed to do this ... So with a clear head and no panicking ... it came together really easily .... 
Warning ..... There are a lot of pictures here ...



The whole box measures around 6.5 cm square ...


Before cutting it out I printed both sides of my CS with digital papers
Just a flower, lace and some sweet little dangles to decorate... 
Take of the lid


"Voila!"
... and you can see that there is another tiny box nestled inside 4 layers ...


Every layer is decorated simply with contrasting card and just some 3D stickers from my stash


Hearts, flowers, words of love ...


... Layered until you get to the tiny box ...


... That holds "the key to my heart" ...
Remove the lid 


And there is the heart 


So ... are you going to give it a go? ... I really hope so ... 
Go visit the blog and take in all the amazing creations from the rest of the DT and this weeks lovely and very talented Guest Designer ... Lynn Miller 

See you there ...
Have a great day!

~ Ros ~

Good heavens Ros, I think you have totally outdone yourself this time! And I'm already such a huge fan of your work! I'm totally in awe and love your stunning box filled with surprises, all superlatives in the dictionary apply to your creation! Hugs, Ira x

This is the prettiest explosion box I have ever seen, Ros! I love all of your details.

I clean up after every project too, but when a card isn't quite coming together, I am guilty of placing it on one side of my work table…that turns into a pile…that turns into 2 or 3 piles…*sigh* This happens less frequently than when I was a newbie crafter, but this is what inspired me for my Urge to Purge self-challenge. If I can slowly work through those piles, I will have more space to work on my current projects :)

What a fabulous, magical box, Ros! As usual you have outdone yourself. I love your key and inside of the box with the heart. Hope your back will continue to get better. Have a lovely evening.

Wow. I can't imagine making one of these... If I even tried, then one of my girlfriends would want one, and another would see it and want one, and then my whole life would be spent making these forever and ever. I still would never get one as gorgeous as this. Wow.
