Make a Wish Book Box

Hello everyone, I worked on this project all day yesterday and am so glad it's done. I love the way it came out though, it looks like a little book, but actually has a compartment inside for a little gift. I love these kinds of gift packages, so different! I got the tutorial from Butternut Sage, but I did see a couple of different ways to make it on various blogs. 

 Here's the inside of the book box with all the pretty Prima papers and punched borders. Instead of using a ribbon closure as shown in the tutorial, I wanted to use an elastic type fastener instead. I just used a pretty brad to hook a small loop of elastic string around to keep it closed. 

The sweet little fairy is from a Pergamano stamp set, colored with Copics. I added lots of Stickles around her to make her sparkle. 

Pretty cute, I think! Thanks for stopping by!
