Fantasy Box





If you have ever browsed SCS you may have seen these amazing boxes, that fold within them selves and have secret little hidden compartments like drawers in them.
I needed a gift box for some jewelry pieces..but I didn't need the 4 drawer box so I was brave and did a box 1/2 the height of the standard Fantasy Boxes.
I worked and tweaked and played until I got what I wanted and how I wanted. Thanks go out to Texasjodylynn for all of her help with this project! I used patterned paper from one of my Matt Stacks or Scrap Stacks, I also used some cardboard from a package of 12x12 patterned paper for the walls...covered in decorative paper. I used the Olivia Alpha and my Cuttlebug for the Initials on top of the lid and the little flowers that adorn the box. I cut the flowers and letters from a chipboard coaster and then inked with Stampin' Up! classic inks. i added a few little mini Primas with some glitter in the centers as a decorative element on top of the inner drawers.
I searched SCS for directions on these boxes and found several..they are called Fantasy Boxes or Stepper Boxes and even Surprise Boxes.
Sorry for the slightly blurred pictures....If i can catch some time I may upload some better ones later. Merry Christmas everyone!

I love this~!Cute paper! I think I might like the 2 drawer version better than the taller version. Someday I am going to attempt one of these too.

Oh I love this!! The vibrant colors you used make this type box look so sassy and fun! One of these days, I'll get around to trying one of these.
