Another Shaker Box

I was in need of some ideas on how to use the shaker box die I have from Siizix and thought I'd challenge SARAH over at Card Oasis to make something! How cheeky of me!!! She came up trumps with her project of a mini book within the shaker box itself. It's really worth a look. Well, seeing as I set her a challenge I thought I should have a go myself and decided to add some nestability die cuts onto the lid and base.

I've used Stampin Up Perfect Plum cardstock to create the base and 3 nestability pieces - and managed to get it all from 1 piece of A4 card too. I bet your thinking where the 3rd piece is. Well It is covering the square top of the box underneath the lid part. this gives a nice smooth finish as you can see here.

The nestability pieces were inked with Perfect Plum ink as was the main image piece. The teddy is from Elzybells and coloured with Promarkers. The flowers themselves were coloured with the Perfect Plum ink and a blender pen.
