A giftbox for Easter by Camilla S. Bakke

Hi! Today I will show you how I made an Easter giftbox. Under you can see the papers I used, pluss the gorgeous stamp illustrated by Norma Fickel for Whiff of Joy.
Here are the measurements for the box. With this measures I will have a box at the size 11x11x3,5 cm.
I have made the box and the cover separately.

Under you see how the papers looks like after I have inked and sewed them.
I use some adhesive tape to fasten them on all four sides.
And now for the cover:
I have put them together and seved the cover aswell. Then I place it on the side of the box, to see where I am going to fasten them together.
I use the strips I made with the word window punch, and eight brads. Make sure you have some space between the to parts, so it also can bend.
I also use the strips with some smaller brads to fasten the sides together. Under you see the inside of the box. I could also have fasten them on the outside...
And under you see the outside of the box.
Now all sides are fastened, and the box is ready to be decorated.
And here it is! The girl with the lamb is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers on water colour paper 300g. I have used a 00 size brush.
A closeup:
The whole cover:
And inside some yummy chocolate-balls filled with milkcream;))
Here you see the box from the other side, with the strips. I think they made a spesial decoration.
Thank you so much for looking at my tutorial today! Hope you got inspired!
Hugs, Camilla.
