Magnolia Book Box for Becs June 'LACE' Challenge

G'day bloggers, that time of the month again... the new challenge over on the Bizzy Bec's Store Blog is

All About Lace

We would like to see your creations using lace in any way you like! I personally don't have much actual lace in my stash.. so as you can see, I used a strip of crochet lace, some 'Paper Lace Doilies' and Magnolia 'Lace' DooHickey dies. I cannot wait to see all your Lace-y Creations!!

This is the front of my Book Box.. aren't these just adorable little keepsake or gift boxes?? I just love how simple they are to make.. you'll be seeing lots more of these from me! I followed a very simple tutorial HERE. I plan on making some slightly larger than this as at 10x12cm approx.. I find this one a little small for all my gorgeous embellies to fit on the front!!!

This is a side shot of the 'pages'....

And the inside. First time I've cracked the Magnolia 'Dream Tag' die.. love the 2 pieces... really versatile. And of course you'll have seen the 'Swirl Butterfly' on the front which I chalked to match - ♥ it!!
And for my regular followers... this is indeed the other half of my *SET* using this card.

I hope to see a heap of my lovely followers joining in the month.. as always Bec will have a prize up for grabs (will edit this when I know what the prize is!). xx
