Hanglar StAnglar book cards

Hi there! I have been playing today, and found this awesome tutorial for this book box... I have been cutting frames out of white chipboard... until I found this tutorial.  It is done by the lovely Tina so drop over and take a look.  It is perfect to put chocolates or money, I even thought a baby box would be perfect for a pair of booties!
 I have also taken the tutorial from Mariska who put up a video on Wiff of Joy blog about how to 3D paper piece... she is one talented lady let me tell you... and she paper pieces every one of her cards!!! thats dedication! My paper piecing isnt quiet to Mariska's standard, but I really enjoyed doing these pieces.... I would probably only paper piece my OTP and 3D projects not my cards, just because of the amount of time it consumes... but it sure is fun and looks great in real person.  The image I have used for both of these boxes is a Hanglar image- not ure of its name, but she is so cute!

 So..... the papers are paper inklings, and a random stripe piece from my off cuts.  Flowers are WOC.  The corner element is Cheery Lynn's Deco Doily corner die.
