"Is It Wedgewood???????"

 Morning all, hope you are all fit and well today. If you have any snow, let's hope it goes soon. 

Today's blog has been inspired by Jonathon Lockwood (johnnextdoor).

He is a very talented man, and is renown for his boxes. This one come from seeing his blog (some of you may have seen him demonstrating this on Hochanda)

Luckily for me, my friend had this die, so i was able to create the same shaped box. 

I've done mine in cream and blue, which looks like wedgewood doesn't it?

I've done different flowers and foilage to John, and also had to do the lid differently, because although John had very kindly shared the template and the score measurements, if I had done as per instructions, the lid would have covered the pattern at the top. So i have done a different lid (a bit like a teapot lid, in that the sides fit inside the box, with a flat lid onto....hope that makes sense)
 sorry didn't realise this photo is a bit blurred, but you get the idea.
 Views from the sides, only one panel is decorated.

John's original box and template. If you haven't come across John before, check his blog out :

Have a wonderful weekend. x
