Guest Post - Paula Knall - Concealed Box Creation

When Owain invited me to do a Guest Post on the blog, I was a little nervous and decided I would wait until I had something really special to show you.

Today is that day! Seeing all the inspiration for the Tonic Craft Kits is so exciting, I always have aspirations of completing some of the projects and it never quite happens! I seem to have hit gold with the Trinket Box Die set from kit 8!

This is a set of trinket boxes with a sleeve that conceals them!

I had so much fun with this, it took nearly 2 days! I managed to use the flowers and leaves, from the die set in Kit 5 to make most of the decoration. The eagle eyed among you will notice a little Nuvo in there and I used the Romanesque Bracket corner die on each side. Those trellis panels from Kit 8 were just the perfect way to finish up the blank panels?

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my project, do share your makes on the Facebook page as we all love to see what everyone else makes.

Thanks for looking!

  1. This is a superb concealed box creation, Paula, and I’m not surprised it took nearly 2 days to create.

  2. Oh! Paula that's gorgeous and you had no need to have been nervous about displaying your work as a guest designer! I have always loved the combination of pink and grey! Are you on the DT now? Keep 'em coming because you should be! Well talent spotted Owain!

  3. I Love your version. I Still need to upload my stuff... life just keeps getting in the way. Instead of a Sleeve, it opens up from the square box, to a "straight/flat" panel of 8 drawers... shhh.. 😊😉
