Crafty Creations - Polka Doodles - Bee Crafty

This project was really fun to make, OK so it took me most of today to do it, but it was really enjoyable, especially seeing the finished result.

I am entering it into three challenges. First over at Crafty Creations, where the theme this week is YELLOW and there is a prize up for grabs too.

Next I am entering it into the Polka Doodles Challenge, which this week is to use more than one fold. Well, there are a few more than one in this project, counting the lid, I make it nine! Prizes on offer here too!

Last, but not least I am going to try it in the Bee Crafty challenge. Their challenge is to go over the top! More, more, more! Not sure if it will count, as it is the papers that are digital images, and you need to include a digital image in your project. A free download on offer to the winner here.

I used a template that I downloaded from the Time for Crafting website which has loads of PDF's for download, and tutorials too. When I had the base cut out I trimmed the printed template down to use as extra templates for the panels inside and out. The fowers were made using my trusty old punches with added inking and gems to finish.
