Cigar box

 These Patina papers from Craft Consortium are so beautiful; gorgeous colours that flow into the next without patterns or florals. They are reminiscent of cosmic activity and are just made for backgrounds and male cards. The most difficult problem I had was choosing which of the papers to use for this box project. The only dies I used were for the hinges and the magnetic closure. If you want to see all the papers go to www.craftconsortium.com.

I took great trouble to match the paper over the top and chamfered edge so that the paper design flowed seamlesly across the box. It has a magnet closure on the front...

.....and two hinges on the back.

I could have added more patina papers inside but felt the matt black contrasted better with the stunning papers this way. I used 200gsm card for the construction, doubling where needed for extra strength.

I can see myself making lots of projects with these Patina papers. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Happy crafting
