Precious and Cherish is the theme for this exploding box. There is a bottle cap with "Simply Precious Creme Soda" and a flower shaped pearl-like button is hand sewn on the box top. The sides of the box have ribbon with the word "Cherish" on it.
The top of the box holds the sides together and when you take it off, the sides "explode" open to reveal itty bitty pictures and layouts.
A very delicate "linen" color antiquing and distressing method has been used on the edges of all sides of the box and each individual layout. There are metal swirly clips, hand sewn buttons, real ribbon, and brads that embellish all sides of the box. Journaling lines have been stamped to the bottom of the box.
What a nifty little gift box idea as well! Use this as the gift box as well for a very light trinket or maybe a small piece of candy.
