Make a Box....13/3

Good Monring Everyone,

Its time for another challenge with us on MAWTT. This week Karina set us all off in a panic with her theme of Make a Box and Decorate it!!! 
I eventually decided on a Triangle Box made using my Ultimate Pro from Crafters Companion.  (See Shell I do use it, it doesn't just collect dust!!) 
I saw a great style to decorate cardstock called Retiform Inking Technique. I saw it HERE. I thought that since I was sending some friends some Tablet (Recipe Here!)   I would have in in some pretty boxes. 
Its quite a simple technique and looks super.  
I hope you like my box. 
Thanks for dropping by my blog today,
Love and Sparkles

It's a lovely idea to make tablet boxes - we always bought it when we went to the Lake District. Is Scottish tablet different? Love the thistles on the box too, carrying through the Scottish theme. Hazel L. x

I'm very impressed Hazel, not only did you make a super box but you decorated the card you made it from & made the tablet to go inside. A super gift from Scotland!

Oh I love that. I love tablet. So glad you used tablet to decorate your box and didn't eat the props like someone else I could mention *whistles*

This is such a cool way to package your gift. Love the inky technique with the over-stamping and the shape of the box is delightful. Thanks for playing along in our Anything Goes/Show a Little Green challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope you join us again soon.
