Cutting Cafe Configuration Box

This week on the Cutting Cafe, the DT is creating projects using the Configuration Box file or the Large Gift Box.

I chose to try the Configuration Box. The 2" depth was too much for me as I knew I didn't have enough things to fill it up so after cutting all the pieces, I trimmed 1" off all the sides. I now see one other DT member folded her sides in half, so I want to try that next time.

I love the song "Beautiful Things" by Gungor, so went with that theme. You can listen to the song here. I typed most of the words to the song for the center of the box, then typed a fitting verse for another section.

Two of the box pieces I put in backwards and cut designer paper to be the majority of the design.

All of the papers are from a paper kit I got from Hobby Lobby by Bo Bunny. Here I added one of the paper flowers that I made for a previous challenge using the Paper Flower file, a cut up paper daily, a ticket, and beaded pin. I don't know who makes the ticket or pin, they were items that were given to me. I have a box filled with little things like this that I get out from time to time to add embellishments to my projects.

After I cut all the boxes, I cut the patterned paper and adhered to each of the inside sections.

In this section, I added another of my paper roses, daily pieces, verse that is typed and cut with Nestibilities die, hand crocheted flower, and Basic Grey button.

I also used the following Tombow products for this project: Mono Multi, Xtreme, Mono Adhesive Dots, Power Tabs, and Foam Tabs.

I hope you enjoy this project and stop by the Cutting Cafe blog tomorrow and view the projects the DT created for this challenge and leave a comment for a chance to win three files of your own choosing.
