The next box was too large but it was tough I'll get some tissue paper to wrap it in.
So to the lids, here lays the problem why I don't know its quite simple enough. First lid didn't fit, the next was too big and the third sort of fitted, had to do.
Went off and had a bit of lunch came back and decorated box lid was really pleased except it was the too small one apparently I should of binned it instead of having a variety of box lids on my desk.
No way was pieces of card getting the better of me. I managed to salvage some of the bits to put on the right lid but the Impression Obession border round the the lid had to be redone again.
Bella Bloom from Simon Says Stamps Exclusive dies and the leaves are Delicate Fern and the leaves are Tender Leaves from Memory Box.
Here's a pic of it at a jaunty angle. That's it no more boxes for me it cheaper and less stressful to buy one.
It sure is a gorgeous box, Debby! Very impressive to have stuck with it! This is why I mainly stick to cards - lol! I'm sure your hard work will be appreciated!
Wowww, this is gorgeous, such a beautiful box.
What a fab creation! hugs, Miria x
It can be so hard to to just toss something when it's giving you a difficult time. I'm glad you didn't - this box is beautiful! I love the monochromatic design!
What a gorgeous box ~ I must admit I have tried and given up ~ congratulations on finishing the project, I am sure the recipient was very pleased ~ it's a keepsake item. Luv Bev xxx

Beautiful, fabulous, I can't do boxes at all. I am so envious. Stunning.
Well it is Gorgeous after all that work. Just love how you use just white. Have a great weekend.
Hahaha that's so funny Debby! Sounds like the first (and last) time I made a box too! I made one base and 4 lids, none of which actually fitted properly.
Never mind, yours turned out to be a stunner, bet the recipient loved it!
Wow! Debby!!! this is so gorgeous, love the finished box hon but I tend to agree with you, sometimes it's easier and far less stressful to buy one ready made.
WOW Debby this is STUNNING!!!
Your box is amazing, all that work really paid off its gorgeous and i just love your card below too, you know i am a big fan of your cards your technique is so special, i always check out your cards but sometimes i am so busy to comment. Keep up your amazing work !!
Big big hugs Di xxxxx
I'm sure it's less stressful, and probably cheaper too, but you wouldn't get a work of art like this in your local shop - maybe keep your talents for special boxes?! Donna xx
Wow what a BEAUTIFUL box. It's so elegant.
You have got such patience Debby. But you have to admit it was definitely worth it at the end wasn't it. That box is absolutely gorgeous. Such talent
It's a gorgeous box Debby and I know you'll need some convincing - but it really was worth all that effort. Love the flower spray on the top especially.
I know you don't think so but it was certainly worth the effort because it is stunning! Love the white on white its so elegant Debby! Susan x
Gorgeous Debby and well worth the trouble.
Have a good weekend.
So beautiful Debby.

Simply stunning Debby. Love the white on white - you do it so well. Never tried it myself, but must give it a go.
