A Box Filled With Affirmations

Yesterday I made a third box in a row. Not intentionally working in a series, I'm just on a box decorating jag for some reason. This box holds circular affirmation cards, (box and cards were free downloads) .
The box is folded from card stock which I painted in purples and greens, and covered the lid in a grey silver pinstripe.

The edges are painted silver, a smiling moon is stamped in silver with some silver embossing glitter over that. As well as some phrases that I felt went along with the idea of the affirmations.

The lid has a domino and a ball-bearing. The domino functions as a handle to open the box.
Inside the ball-bearing is a small silver charm that reads Thank-You. All held in place with lots of glue and why not some silver glitter.
Everything then has a coating of matte medium which made the box feel much more sturdy than just folded card stock once it dried.

Thanks for the link. These remind me of the Best Wishes cards I've made from the downloads from

I think these boxes are a great idea and if you are working in a series, what the heck? You are working and that is important.
