book in a box

 This is the end result of my book in a box....omg how fiddly was the cutting out lol but actully pretty easy to do just took a few days waiting for glue to dry then i forgot about it over the weekend lol.  As you can see i went with the theme of green/blue  as i think they go well together.

 This is a close up of the book i chose the green paper to go with the white card with green tags on as they went well together. i curled the ends to give it a nice 3d look. then added ribbon to act as a book mark. The paper and card was from kanban whilst the ribbon star and with love/happy birthday peel offs were from my own stash.
 This is the box on its own i dind twant to do anything too fancy so just went with four flowers in each corner sticking with the colours used in the book. The paper used for flowers again was from kanban whilst the card buttons and twin were from my own stash.
this is a close up of one of the flowers on the box. as you can see i went with a small green button and threaded through blue twin. i did this on opposite corners and the other corners are a blue button with green twine.

i am entering this in to the following challenges:
