SSCB #30 - Shades of Grey Box

April continues with Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge with Shades of Grey.  The Design Team has added a "Love is in the Air" theme as well.  There is still time for you to play along and win a prize!

I decided to make a box that my friend Renita taught me how to make out of 1 sheet of 12 x 12 paper.  It has a belly band to keep it closed.  This is a shot from above to show the top and side.

Here is a shot with the belly band removed.  The small "Love Inside" unmounted stamp is on sale right now for just .25 cents!
The box measures about 3 1/2 inches.

Want to play along in our Shades of Grey Challenge?  Just create a project using a Serendipity Stamps image or die by May 5 for a chance to win a $20 discount code towards your next purchase.  A winner will be chosen at random.  Make sure you use black, white and grey only. More details can be found here.
