spring has sprung box

You can create this gorgeous box from the template found on stamptv. I'm sure there are other templates out there but this one is so easy to follow. The one exception to very easy to follow is there should be a warning for first time makers (me) who forgot that with a lid on the box centering the bottom panels is a bit different lol! I should have made the topnote panels just a bit smaller AND there should be no space between the patterned paper and the bottom of the box. That way you'd be able to see the entire topnote image, the top of it wouldn't be cut off. Clear as mud? The second caution I would say (because I don't use patterned paper very often I forgot this
when scoring dp be very careful, its so thin that it tears easily! That being said this box would amke a gorgeous gift! Put some seed packets in it, or a small plant, a planter of dried flowers, the possibilities are endless. Yes Tanis this will be a class in the spring, probably May! I entered this box into two challenges. The first on is stamptv anything but a card and the second is Charisma Cardz Challenges which is spring has sprung! With the flowers on each image this is a definite spring has sprung box. Stamps: Flourishes from the garden
Paper: Night of navy, bashful blue, dp, whisper white
Ink: night of navy, bashful blue
Other: ribbon, stampin up markers, nestabilities label #4
