Blackberry Oval Box

Birthday Party Live – Project #5

So, back in July you saw me make a cylindrical box using the Layering Circles dies – this time I’ve made an oval box using the same method and I think I prefer the oval to the circle! Made in my absolute favourite colour, Blackberry Bliss and decorated with Halloween goodies, this box is a great size. It uses the largest die of the Layering Ovals set to form the template for the lid and the base, and just like the cylinder box the lid sits flush.

In last night’s live stream, I made another in a different colour way but still highlighting the gorgeous Magic in this Night suite from Stampin’ Up! The papers have got to be the best set of Halloween papers I’ve seen Stampin’ Up! do – I know, I say that every year!

Once again, I’ve brought out the iridescent pearls and the glittered organdy ribbon. But they’re so perfect for a Halloween inspired project, that I would be insane not to!! Which one do you prefer? Blackberry Bliss or Pretty Peacock?
