Get off your soap box!

Well... here it is at last! my soap box Tutorial
To start with you will need a soap box (yes i have been on a bit of a collection! lol)

Next cover the box with the paper of your choice, i used a scrapbook paper, cvant remember which pad it was now? one of those huge thick ones with loads of papers in different shades!

I attached a velcro sticky dot to the tab part so that the box can be shut...

I used my new Stampin Up stamps 'Playful Petals', bought these as i think they are soooo pretty!
I added some co-ordinating ribbon around the box and added a knot to the front to snazz it up a bit...

This is a view of the top flower which was stamped, used Letraset Promarkers to colour it and some glitter glue around the edge of the flower and centre flower.

... next one to do is the tins!!!
