I hope Ive put this in an appropriate place ....

A while back I made this "Love Letter" Box Its quite possibly my favorite thing Ive ever made, I moved around a lot and it got left in boxes in storage due to lack of room ... I found it looking for more crafting stuff!
The second I saw it I knew I had to share it with everyone here....
so without further adieu:








I adore this thing and plan on making more, I need to find someone whos good at faux finish painting so they can paint me some vintage envelopes.

Id love to know what everyone thinks!

*****Link provided by Staciart to the Carol Duvall tut (who knew?)***** 
This is fabulous! I've never known anyone who has made this - looks way better than mine!  I was trying to do the one from Carol Duvall show, but couldn't get it to look anywhere near as good as your  :\

 Smiley     I rocked it, too!  Here is a link for instructions: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_crafts_boxes/article/0,,HGTV_3289_1399648,00.html

Thanks guys!  Its really easy to make too. I could probably make a written tut if anyone is interested, then add pics when I make another with progression shots

wow!  That is so unique and pretty! Cheesy If you ever chose to do a tut, i'd love to see it!  Have you thought of the tea method for making "antiqued" envelopes?

I never thought about that! The tea wouldn't make the paper fragile would it? I might just have to do some experimenting! Thanks Doll!

I think that's so unique! You did an awesome job and It would look very cool with old envies. I say go to second hand shops and pick up so old ones.
