As Promised – Filigree Box Tutorial

Hi there blog friends!  I’m keeping my promise and I might add that I’m tickled to do so.  Not to long ago while I was away I made a sweet little box – and enclosed eight little cards.  It was so easy to make that it may be my go-to box instead of the 3″ x 3″ I normally make.  Well, I thank you for your patience, I finally sat down and made up more samples and filmed a video to walk you though it.  The box has lots of possibilities and even though the one I make in the video is the same as I made before, the one that I’m showing here has an alternative lid.  Once you watch the video, if you are interested in how to do this lid, it is the same except I glued the throwaway pieces from the die back into place.   The original post with my first box is at this link:

Here is the video:

My goodness, I haven’t done a video is so long, I had a little bit of relearning to do.  It won’t be so long for the next one, I promise.   See you soon!!

    Well maybe you feel you had a bit of relearning to do, but to me it sure looked like you had never done anything else, and the tutorial is so awesome as is this wonderful box here. I am certainly going to make some of these too, that´s for sure. They are so awesome and so beautiful and it´s such a wonderful little gift for someone, if you need a little something, and they seem really fast to make, so they fits just sooo perfect tome, as I´m often in the last minute with these things he he he. I love the result hun and have also already thought of a couple more, that could be made a bit like this too, so I´ll be busy here the next while, if we ever get these new dies it means LOL.
    Have a wonderful day hun and lots of fun as well.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Well I’ve been away from blogland a while now but today I had to stop by and say ‘Wonderful’. Your cards, as always, are amazing but I so adore your little box. Such a innovative idea for using the die and a beautiful way to present a useful gift of notelets.
    Thank you for always sharing your wonderful ideas with us.
    Hugs and best wishes. Linda (UK)xxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, This tutorial is fantastic, it has inspired me so much that I have just pre-ordered the dies and embossing folder. What a brilliant notelet box, I will definitely be trying these to make for Fayres at Church.
    I must tell you that I received your Bow maker on Saturday and I watched your video and made my first Becca Bow yesterday afternoon, I can see this tool will be used on every card I make, such brilliant results. Thank you for the inspiration.
    Lots of love fromm Patricia xxReplyCancel

    You make it look so easy, girl! What a nice little gift this would make. I have some other boxes I have made but are larger. These are too cute! Know I will be making some of these, possibly to have on hand to give my fellow papercrafters (8 of us meet once a week for a girl’s night out) for their birthday handmade gift.
    Great job Becca.
