My box following Patricia's tutorial

Hello Everyone
Thank you for popping by. If you can leave a comment I am truly honoured that you've taken the time. I love your feedback, it helps me to improve my crafting. Talking of which today's post is a box I made using Patricia's brilliant tutorial on her blog here All I've done is vary the height of the box and depth of the lid. I made it for a friend's daughter for her bridesmaid gifts. I made it all in one colour to match her dress and the trims/ribbon match her wedding ring. I have to say that my previous attempts to make a box  were awful, with droopy sides and glue everywhere. I have to say that CS dries clear glue has become my new best friewnd!  But I'm very proud of this one as I did her trick of trimming a slither off two sides for the base and using a Hougie board to do the scoring.
On another topic, thank you for your lovely comments on my previous posts and to say that the Fun Run went well. We had exceedingly good weather and nearly got a Guinness Book World record for the most heart transplantees at one event. they were 4 short! such a shame but what an achievement!
