Maja Design Telephone easel Card and standing up box - video tutorial

Design Team project for Kreativ Scrapping

Made this card with the beautiful  Vintage springs basics 6 x 6 paper pad from Maja design.
This paper pad is perfect for 6 x 6 cards :-)

Used Tim Holtz telephone die for the easel effect on the top. The angel is from Nille and the lilac flower was given to me in a rak :-) On the doily under the telephone there is place for a little message.
Flower with Nellie snellen punch out leafs on top and a iamroses flower to hold the telephone up

Video with standing up box tutorial

Here the telephone lay flat so it is easy to post.
Used Martha Stewart alphabet punch  to write hello my friend.
Lace and bling trim in the bottom.

Inside the card I cut out a circle ( saved it for another card lol ) And backed it with an other paper.
Decorated with flower trim, cheese cloth and seam binding.
Small telephone movers and shapers die from Tim holtz.
Also used Tim Holtz branch and bird die on the top with distress stickles glitter

Also made a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 box to go with it .
The image is from a post card. Covered it with paper and glued lace around. Added some flowers that I got from Annie`s Etsy  shop  cheese cloth, pearl spray ,trim and metal corners.

Inside the box I made a lace pocket with some tags.
Flower and seam binding for decoration.

Measurements for the box
Cut off all x and fold in

Fold the bottom sides in an angle for the hinges
Cut 2 1, inch copy paper. Fold it  and plase a tiny magnet on each side. Do that on both.

Cut the 6 1/8 strip down to 6 inch and glue it on one of the bottom box side.
