I made this cute little Traveling Case for this month's Blog Hop!  I found the instructions (by Tamra) over on Authentique's Facebook page HERE.  It's super cute and I couldn't resist making it all fancy.

I used Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection, I just love the blues and greens together.  The ornamental pieces are from my favourite die set Arianna Lace.

 I kept the outside 'plain' because I wanted the wow factor to happen when you open the box!

For the handle I used one of the border dies from Border Essentials.

Tada!  I envisioned the flowers tucked in the corner of the lid, but then I imagined them flowing down into the bottom part too!  You can store keepsakes in here.  Or leave some of the flowers off and use it on your desk to store paperclips etc. too!!!

I used another favourite, Window Box Elements die for the ornamental piece in the lid.

The flowers are stamped and cut using Botanical Rose.  They were cut using patterned paper in the Flowering Dogwood paper collection and white cardstock.


I love the cascading effect!  And it closes nicely, the flowers are small enough that they don't interfere with each other when closed.



I used Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Mini Prills and Nuvo Crystal Drops to embellish the flowers.

And finally, the bottom of the box inside.

Recipe- Heartfelt Creations PP-Flowering Dogwood, Heartfelt Creations Dies-Arianna Lace, Botanical Rose, Border Essentials & Window Box Elements, Heartfelt Creations Stamp-Botanical Rose, Heartfelt Creations Misc.-Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, Mini Prills-Minnie Pearls, Papericious-Crystal Clear Glitter, & Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops-Ivory Seashell, Bazzill CS-Mysterious Teal & mint green, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Blush, Whisper & Juniper, Magnets, Foam, Pearls.
