A matching box

No guesses which is my favourite image right now! These stacked animals are so cool. I'm still playing with the colour combo for the hen though. Made a box to match the card I made for last weeks Mojo Monday as I loved the colour combo.

I bought this 'Flutter Box' template from The Digichick Boutique. Love the shape but still trying to work out a tidier way of closing it up. Any suggestions?

Hi Paul first time visit for me and I must say how great it is to see a man crafters blog. I have been having a peek and you are very good with your creations. I love this one in particular great fun card and the colour combo is lovely. Look forward to next months ATC swap.

Think the box is great but I wonder if the yarn you've used hasn't got enough weight. Maybe some black or blue cord with a chunky bead on the end or those beads you can make with rolled paper. What about black inking the edges of the box top to emphasise the shape more. These are only suggestions Paul. It's difficult to get a proper idea without having it in your handsXXXBetty

Hi Paul...My first visit here too! You do marvelous work! The stamps are adorable. Thank you so much for sharing. Now, about your box. I thought of running black ribbon knotted of course, after putting it through a circle punch, on opposing sides of your box. Without seeing it or having it in my hot little hands it's hard to tell. *grins* But, you might want to give that a go? Other than that, by Jove keep up the great work! *smiles* P.S. Thank you very much for your encouraging words about MM80 today. Sazzyxoxox
