& a sixpence in her shoe
How the box looks when it's open
I used Teresa Collins - Everyday Moments paper kit collection. I didn't want this project to turn out extremely girly so that the groom would also be able to appreciate the gift. I fell in love with the beautiful, royal blue from this collection & knew almost instantly that it would be my main choice of colour.
I used 2 boxes & with a strip of patterned CS, I made a long paper hinge to hold the boxes together. Then, I covered the 2 boxes with the royal blue patterned CS. To ensure that my box doesn't open up voluntarily, I added a brass catch. The brass catch compliments my paper very well & it further enhances the ornate feel of the box.

To break the stiffness the box, I added 2 strips of ribbons & stuck ends under the mats of the front & back so that I'm still able to open my box. To make it more interesting, I added a key & lock charm to the ribbons
