One Stop Craft Challenge - Stitched up Box

This week has been absolutely crazy. Earlier in the week I had 3 challenges running on separate challenge blogs where I had set the theme! I'm so sorry if it has taken me a while to comment on every one's blog; I am trying really hard to catch up. Anyway, this is the last challenge that I am setting for a while.

Over at the One Stop Craft Challenge I've set the theme of:

All Stitched Up!

So this week, we'd like to see stitching on your projects. It can be faux, doodled, stamped, machine or hand stitched. I hope you'll all give it a go.

My project is this chocolate box. I have zig-zag stitching on the purple paper and back stitch on the glitter flower in the centre. Mmmm! Yummy chocolates!

The box itself is made using a template. I just happened to spot it and thought it would come in useful. It's a Rayher Scrapbooking Line Stencil - Pentagon. I found it so easy to use and the result is fab. It's much larger than the other boxes I've made and 15 chocolate fitted into it with no trouble at all. I could have fitted more if I had them!

Sentiment - Penny Black - Kindness
Glitter Card (box lid and largest part of the flower on the top.
White Card (for the bottom)
Flower combo, purple pearls and thread from my stash.
Tools: Embossing tool and Pricking tool
