Parisian Breeze - SB in a Box

Here's my latest SB in a Box (yes, I LOVE making these things!). This one was for my mom's birthday.

I used the Parisian Breeze designer series paper (man, this stuff is THICK and sturdy!). I also went for four levels instead of my usual three.

I used the new oval stamp set ("Oval All") and the new oval scallop punch from the mini catalog to make the date labels. However, I left the phrases in the stamps out by just coloring what I needed with markers and then stamping.

The flower in the middle is from prima (the blue flower behind it is also prima):

Also new - I tried using a different edge punch for the top of each "page", and I love the way it came out!

Here are 2 tutorials I've found out on the net to make these boxes:

The main difference between the two are how the box tops are made. I prefer the deeper, sturdier version I made here, but I've also made the shallower version when I needed to show more design on the box sides.

    Thanks for sharing the instruction links as well. Can't wait to try my hand at this especially now that I have the eyelet punch.

    Hugs and blessings from a sister demo - Jean Fitch
