Heartfelt Creations Book and Gift Box

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

For this week's Heartfelt Creation Burst of Splendor Collection submission, I decide to make another book and alter a box. 
Here's a pic of the box before it was altered.

Here's the altered box. It looks a little different.

You can find the instruction for this project at the end of this posting (it's a little long). If you would like to see some fantastic projects, go to the Heartfelt Creations blog. The design team's projects are just amazing.

Have a Blessed Day

I would like to send a special "Thank You" to Jim The Gentlemen Crafter. Thank you Jim for your excellent tutorials. I'm finally learning how to make book covers.
