The new Funky Hand download went on sale at the weekend and they are soooooo pretty - but the lovely grey shades really soften the pink ones so that they'll appeal to those who just LOVE lots of PINK, and for those, who like me, like a bit of pink but in a more subdued way!
That said this box is quite heavy on the pink - but I used mainly the softer designs and stayed away from the full-on Bubblegum ones.
This is how the box looks when it's all closed up
Take the lid, and the base away and the whole thing opens out to reveal a stack of small trays. When I've made these before there's been a stack of 4 boxes, but I wanted to try it with three this time - and just as well because when I started filling the trays with chocolates I was amazed at how many it needed to look as though there were any in there at all! Two full of those cellophane bags of Thorntons choccies went in here - and you can hardly see them. Might need to try a two tier one next time!
As usual, given the chance to go wildly dimensional on a project (and what better than a box lid for doing that), I didn't waste the opportunity. I used die cuts for the "streamer" bits and made a large paper rose on the top, and a border punch, sem binding and plenty of bling to trim around the lid.
