This is my first project for my blog. I saw this box on utube. It was by APieceofCraftdotcom and was called the expandable keepsake box. Here is where I watched it
I thought I'd give it a try. I made a gypsy file to help me make it for cutting all the bits(I'll upload that file later). I think you should be able to cut it all on a 12x24 mat, but I don't have one of those yet. A few teething problems and here is the result. I used Brenda Pinnick papers, cereal boxes for the card and metal magnetic fastners from papermania to open and close the box. The flower I made following another utube video I found. That's another posting for different day. Back to the box.
Here is the box closed
As you can see on the open picture the file section is too big. I now what I have done now and like all crafting you have to make mistakes to learn. I'll post again about the boxes when I've made a proper one now I've got the teething issues out of the way. I think you'll all agree for a first attempt it's not a bad little box!
