Candy Box Crafts, Hatton Box with Never-ending summer papers from Lemoncraft

Today i have a beautiful box.
I went to a wonderful workshop with Roy from Candy Box Crafts.
It my favourite type where you can use your own stash and do your own thing.
I've had these papers a long time and waiting for the perfect project,
and the knob in the centre i've had years and decided it too would be perfect.

Made the box up, glued then painted the box cream inside and out.
These boxes from Candy Box Crafts are so well designed and go together easily.
Used the papers, Never-ending Summer from LemonCraft.

Roy showed me how to make the cones, easy when you know how.
The lock is Graphic 45.

I decided to create a shabby chic box as its my favourite style.
With lots of lovely embellishments.

The badges on the sides match the papers from lemon craft.
The leaves are prima.
The rhinestones are super sparkly ss20,

I added distress inks around the edges of all my papers.
Also added treasure gold on the edges of the lid.
A few laser cut butterflies from my stash which are really old.
Coloured my roses with tattered rose DI.
Would like to enter these challenges;
