Nested boxes

   This week for the Hobby Cutz challenge we would like your creation to be anything but a card.
    I have made a series of nested boxes, reducing all dimensions by one centimetre to create the next smaller box. The box lids were printed onto card using the CD ROM 'Mystical Wonders' from My Craft Studio. The design on the top of the largest box is a digi called 'counting the stars' from A Day For Daisies who are sponsoring us this week. I coloured it using Promarkers and edged with distress inks before matting it onto silver mirri card. I used a silver gel pen on the little stars. On the lids of the smaller boxes I randomly attached a lazer cut butterfy from Hobbycutz. I attached mauve candy stripe round the lower part of the lid sides on the four larger boxes and then randomly glued silver stars on all edges and the tops of the boxes.

   I would like to enter these into the following challenges:
