Under The Big Top Gift Box

Hi All,
I'm having a bit of a downer day today.  A good friend is moving to Mackay (9 hours north of here) and it will be so sad to see her go.  We spent the day with her family and friends today, on Australia Day, and it will be sad when they leave on the weekend.
On a brighter note I have a little box with a candle inside that was for ........ yes you guessed it Angie.  I have mentioned before about making a box and this one did stump me for a while.  But always remember to measure the top, sides and bottom and if you want flaps or not.  I find it easy to write down the measurements and then draw the open plan for the box to make sure it looks the way I want it to look.  I have made this box in purple of course...
I matted the picture with cake crumb and I coloured in the pictures with watercolour pencils, sponging around the edges.
Stamp set:  Under the big top
Card:  Elegant eggplant, cake crumb and whisper white
Ink:  Basic black and watercolour pencils
Tools:  1" circle punch
thanks for stopping by......
