Use A Quote

I'm very excited to be a guest at A Vintage Journey today and to share my Use a Quote project.  

I recently made this faux book card for my daughter's birthday and today's project is a matching box.  
I happened to have a suitable size box in my 'stash' but I needed to change the design to one with a hinged lid. I also added an extra layer of chipboard to the sides to make it sturdy.

Here is my completed project:

 I thought the quote was the perfect inspirational message for this project.
  I used the same patterned papers I had used in the card and selected matching card stock and embellishments.  The ribbon serves as a tab to lift the hinged lid.

Here is the inside:  

I distressed and inked all the edges and added lace to finish it off. 

The inside of the hinged lid.  

Once again all the edges were distressed and inked. I inserted a panel covered with satin material, added some lace and the two triangles of patterned paper which create a pocket.  A lace die cut border and pearls finished it off.

Here is a side view:

And a close-up.....

Thank you so much to A Vintage Journey for inviting me.  I enjoyed every minute of creating this for my sweet Kayleigh who turned 18 on the 18th May! Happy Birthday sweetheart ❤

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
