A box to die for :o)

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this time the theme is Recycle.
So I decided to recycle an old presentation box which I found lying about behind the scenes at the library, I thought it might  make a good storage box for my thin dies such as Nesties and Marianne's Creatables. Many of them are on magnetic sheets which fit perfectly into the box - and best of all there is plenty of room for more!!

I covered the box with K&Co papers and distressed the edges with my emery board, added faux stitching to the panel on top then used die cut chipboard letters as well as a die cut bird and flourish to decorate.


Entering it for the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges - Stitching   
2 Sisters - Anything Goes 
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes   
Crafty Ribbons - Anything BUT a Card 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Punches and Dies 
Hanna & Friends - Pimp Something
Stampavie and More - Anything Goes 
Hooked on Crafts - Punches and /or Diecuts
