Book Gift Box – CCMC180

My favourite new stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue is The Open Sea stamp set (p18 mini).  I used the set to make this Book Gift Box with the Well Worn designer Series paper (p129 IB&C).  I based my layout for the front of the box from the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge CCMC180.

For the map of the world, I first gave it a quick colour in using inks then covered it in crystal effects.  Here is a close up look:

The box opens when you pull the bookmark:
