Marcy's choice of colours were Green,Copper,Sepia, and Ivory. I decided to have Copper and Sepia as the bead colours and use Ivory and Green for the box.
The bead collection came together really easily and for the box I decided to make a collapsing one that is loosely based on a design from my Japanese book of small gifts to make.
I had seen a tutorial for making the silk flower and decided to have a go using some of the ivory material I had left over from the Table Cloth challenge. Having made the flower 1st, the box just sort of evolved and I had enough material to make a pouch for the beads which sits inside when the box sides are folded up into the lid.
I am entering this into the following challenges.
Craft Your Days Away are asking for your favourite things. My favouirite pastime is creating boxes.
Rosie D's challenge are asking for More than one fold. The box folds up and each petal of the flower on top is a circle folded several times.
Just Scraps are having an Open House so anything goes.
Creatalicious are sayng Show some 3D.
Craftalicious are saying Make your own flowers and are asking for at least one flower on your project.
