Blingest Box set

So, I made another box for a friend. I picked out some way bling-afied paper for this one! The whole sheet is covered in the stuff! Again, this was a pad of papers I found at Michael's made by K and Company, this pad was called Blue Awning. This is a specialty stack, inside are embossed sheets, feels like velvet , and glittery sheets. It's filled with rich blues, browns and greens.

I messed up on the top of the box again. The tutorial does the bottom first, and I for some reason keep wanting to make the top first, and end up with a sheet too long. So, I used my corner rounder to trim up the top a little, and it works fine and dandy. But I gotta get that mental note in my head telling me the bottom comes first! Here is a peak at a few of the cards.

The white stuff on here is very soft and fuzzy. It feels like velvet. Isn't it some pretty paper? I keep using double sided paper, because I think it'll make a nice little pop for my friends when they open the box. Here's what they'll see when they open the box up.

One last card to show off how cool the papers in this pack are. I couldn't cover up this flower. It's embossed, and the green parts are kinda like the white coating on the card above. So, I had a hard time figuring out where to put my monogrammed letter. But the flower was so pretty and big, I had to leave it on the card. Isn't that a majorly huge flower?
I used K and Company papers, DCWV papers, star dust stickles, SU scallop punches, Martha Stewart monogrammed stamp set, misc CB folders, Basic brown SU ink, close to cocoa, misc ribbons and mini pearl bling.
