Bookish & just my Type -- Boxes/Bags at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is Boxes/Bags. I adapted the Hidden Compartment Book Box from Silhouette/Lori Whitlock to create this trio of gift boxes.

I used some of my favorite writing-themed papers. I adhered colored tissue paper to double-sided adhesive before stamping the images (Clear Art Stamps, except for the sentiment, which is from Scrapper's Paradise) in distress & Memento inks.

The little bookmarks are made with a leather-like paper. I used thin magnets to closed the box lid. I've been saving this Dick-and-Jane-themed paper forever!

The "pages" pieces on the sides are traced & cut from corrugated cardboard that comes with sandwiches at Panera(!) and are inked with Antique Linen distress ink. The rest of the pieces were inked with a mix of Tea Dye & Antique Linen.
