Don't be square...Be rectangle.

Probably THE single dumbest title I ever came up with LOL.

Today, I have another box,,,,,,,,,,,,a rectangle one,,,,,,,,another Becca flap box. They're just SO elegant, and the minute I saw the challenge over at Make My Monday, well, I knew this box was the ONLY thing I wanted to make,,,,,,

The theme this time around is "Victorian Romance",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,dreamy sigh. Yes, I love victorian romance!

I used two victorian images,,,,,,,,a young couple in love,,,,,,,and a French Victorian chocolates ad. The chocolates ad I got at the Graphics Fairy (button to the right),,,,,,,the other was on a CD I bought years ago.

when I think of Victorian, I always think of lacy, fancy stuff,,,,,,,so I knew I wanted to make this box a bit fancy. So, from the bottom up, my focal point uses the following nesties dies,,,,

Lacy Ovals, Parisian motifs, lacy ovals, parisian motifs, ovals (with picture) and then finally one of the smallest Parisian motifs.

The box itself is made from this gorgeous peachy/pink flourish paper,,,,,,,no clue who made it, it was a gift at least a year ago, and I've been saving it for something special.  I used a satin ribbon closure with velcro on the bottom,,,,,,,,,two stick pins and a fluffy ivory bow,,,,,,and a plethora of tiny pearls,,,,,and of course, the chocolates ad made into a little tag. This box is the PERFECT size for a few delish fancy french chocolates for a lovely thank-you gift!

Here's a close up!

I hope you enjoyed the box,,,thanks for looking,,,,,run right over to Make My Monday if you want to enter a beautiful Victorian Romance project!
