A Bit Fancy Pencil Box

Good Morning! It is Friday, the 1st of August 2014 and we have had SCORCHIO days this summer here in West Yorkshire, England. At least 3-4 hot(ish) days! Hehee, I call that a wonderful summer.

My project for Crafts Galore Encore 
and our fab sponsor for this month is

No stamps at all on this.

First I made 6 boxes 5cm x 5cm x 12cm.
Glued them together to have a sturdy base.
Mine was kraft one side and white the other and naturally I made boxes without thinking and left WHITE side to show. Argh, numpty.

Printed a LV wallpaper x few A4 sheets of gorgeous leather embossed card from Papermill Direct, that was for front, back, sides and bottom. 
Needed brown strips for all edges. 
I thought golden corners etc would be nice and then glued tons of half back pearls around front edges.

Here we go.

3 x A4 sheets of sturdy card for departments (6 boxes)
3 x A4 sheets of white leather embossed card
2 x A4 golden card for buckles and corners
3mm flat back pearls 
4mm flat back pearls

There are challenges I'd love to take part:

leather embossed card has wow-factor and colours look good on it, quality is awesome
golden linen card has soft surface and embossing is easy, shines too

As I said a bit earlier: 
Can't wait to see YOUR creations. Come and play with us!
