Lantern box

   This week Creative Corner would like you to make anything but a card for their challenge.
   Using Crealies Create a Box (set 1) dies I made a lantern shaped box. I used raffia for the handle and attached this whilst making up the box. I used various Tattered Lace dies to cut out holly, trails of ivy and a Christmas rose from white card. These I then coloured using distress inks and then used them to decorated the panels of the box. I left one of the upper panels undecorated and to this I attached a greetings peel off.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - favourite embellishments (Tattered Lace die cuts)
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
