Card Box - Jean-style

A card box made from a bit of Jean's tutorial, a bit of my flopportunities and a LOT of PATIENCE from Jean (MusicScrp) today LOL.
The box is made from chipboard, covered with K & Company's Wild Saffron paper, embellished with lace, seam binding, gold trim and a lot of glue LOL.
I've used an old button for the knob on the front for the closure in conjunction with the seam binding.
Inside the box I've used a piece of paper from Basic Grey's basics kraft paper stack to line it.
I've also used an entire Tyvek envelope to stabilise the structure inside the box.
I had so much fun making this - now it's time to fill it with cards - might have to wait a bit for that - still working on my Christmas cards LOL.
