I made my daughter in law a box for Christmas this year using black chipboard and the papers from Graphic 45 French Country Collection. I love the rich colors and the vintage home grown aspect of the paper. My daughter in law loves sunflowers and chickens and I think this paper works for the two of us. The box is 4"x4"x8" and the sides are split down about 2/3 of the way all the way around. I covered all surfaces with the various papers from the collection and added chip board bits and ribbon from Stampin UP!
Opened the box contained a candle that had leaf imprints circling it. I really like the way this box turned out and may end making a few more for gifts during the year. While they look like they take a lot of work it can be done in a couple of hours.
The lid is some flower bits I had from other projects that I glued together into a sunflower ornament on the top of the box.
Another view of the back side of the box. All sides were covered but these were two of my favorite.
