When is a box not a box ??????

 When it's a portable stationery box !!!!

Good Morning all, hope you are well and happy and have been able to enjoy the sunshine over the last few days.

I saw this project on the Tonic Blog. A brilliant idea that would make a suitable father's day present (if done in the right colours), this one is for me though LOL!!
 A4 card is used to make a box, with three compartments and a fold down flap that also has a compartment for stamps, a pen and also a notebook.
 I have used a labelling machine to print off the words.
 Looking down into the box you can see the depth of the compartments.
It all folds back up and when the lid is on, only measures 17 x 12.5 x 5cm.

I am going to make some co-ordinating notelets and envelopes to add to the box (if I've got enough of the patterned paper.)

Have a good day, whatever you are doing, and thanks for stopping by. x
