Close up of the lid


Included in the set are svg files for those of us with cutting machines and also PDF files for those of us without. To be honest as the design is so simple to cut I used the PDF pattern rather than setting up my Silhouette Cameo.

I used Raspberry Road Denim and Diamonds Paper to decorate the box. - here
The lace and pearls were from my stash.
The beautiful die is from ‘Tattered Lace’ – Rambling Rose which was free and exclusive with the Tattered Lace Magazine.
