Accordian Book in a Box - Decoration

Box, outside

As promised I have now completed decorating the accordian book in a box project. For the lid I punched out two holes and threaded a small piece of 7mm fuschia satin ribbon through the holes and tied it in a bow to act as a lid handle. I embellished the top panels with square red and green flat backed jewels adhered with glossy accents. For the book I printed out a number of angelic pics onto 2ins square vellum pieces using an ink-jet printer. These were trimmed and the concertina panels were decorated with these. My book had 8 panels in all. To compliment the lid each panel was adorned with two square flat backed jewels to compliment the colourway. I think less is more on this one and because of the fussy papers I purposely kept it simple.
