This so not my favourite type of challenge but when you a DT member of Simon Says Stamps Challenge you have to do as your told, although I do have senior moments.
The Team is showcasing 7 Gypsies and Maya Road products but you don't have to use them to enter the challenge.
Originally I was going to make a mini book with the 7 Gypsies 6inch Lille pad but time ran away and I decided to make a gift box. I think it would have been quicker to make the book.
I wanted to used the Romantic Rectangles for the lid so the box had to be made to fit, several lids later.
Also the papers cried out distress me, so every thing was inked included my Hero Arts Etched Flowers.
Here's a pic to prove its a box and not just the top.
Do hope you can join in this weeks Simon Says Stamps Challenge and of course there is an amazing prize to wind and don't forget to check out the team who are far more clever and originally than me.
