My 1st Box

My 1st Box!!! (At least one this intricate)
This was a blast to make. First off a big thank you to Laura at The Paper Trail. You can find the link to her blog in my sidebar under inspiration. Laura made the pattern for this box and it is still available for purchase through her website.
The DP is Bo Bunny. I should have taken a picture of the inside for there are two more designs there. The flowers on top are made from Basic Grey DP and the new Spellbinders Rose Creations Dies. Love these dies. I found a great tutorial on YouTube for making the flowers - if I can find it again I will post it later at the bottom. The smaller white roses are Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearls I believe are Prima. I picked them up at HL. The hardware is mostly Tim Holtz with the exception of the cross hanging off the front. The cross was from the jewelry section at HL.
I can't remember which ink I used to finish the edges. Like I said I had a blast making this though it did come with a lot of trial and error. Hope you like it. I have another one in the works but I would like to enter this one into the following challenges.
