Golden Oldie vintage...

Happy Friday,

I have chosen a golden oldie today that will also fit as a vintage card as it uses one of the original Striplets by Sue Wilson as well as spellbinders n one of my Easter Egg boxes.  I used to make a new easter egg box every year I must make more boxes!

Enjoy...

  10. Stunning, stunning, love it.
    I had a go at this first time round but was totally scuppered with the lid.
    However that Striplet makes a brilliant 4 sided box.
    Good luck

  21. Good morning John! Lovely! Stunning! Beautiful! Awesome! Lots more superlatives too! You are so creative and it's good to be reminded that ideas used in the past are still good relevant designs for the present. I do hope you are well and that you are giving full rein to your creative talents. I hope to see you again soon. Take care. Craft Owl by the Sea, north Norfolk. xx

  22. Good moring John flower,
    Oh what a bonnie box this is and the reasons for making it and using it is endless. The outside of a gift is the first thing that you see and lets face it this beauty is oh so much better than a piece of wrapping paper in my mind. Thank you for bringing back some of your stunning works of art that i know a lot of us love,
    love and crafty hugs

  26. Hi John. I remember this box the first time round and it doesn't look any less spectacular second time round. (Did you ever eat the Easter Egg?)

  27. Thanks for sharing yet another golden oldie. I was not around in the card making circle when you made this card. I am astonished that your box opens from the side and not from the top. I missed it when you first posted it. Can you do a video showing the side opening box? I checked the original post and continued back looking at your first Easter Egg Box. All lovely and awesome. One of the first projects that I made in card making was your box from 2016. I wish I had waited to make it after you posted your instructions. Maybe it would have helped me make it in a couple of hours instead of two days! I had to make my box only four sided due to the USA sized paper available. I gave my box as an Easter "card" and my friend was very pleased with it. John are you okay? I don't know your present situation, but you are in my prayers. Stay strong and know others care!
