My French Cartonnage is Done!!

It's not perfect but I think it is one of the cutest things I have ever made.  And ya know, practice makes perfect so . . . 

The class had a different front but I liked the scalloped edge better so I took the challenge and went with it.  Love it!!

On the Facebook page several gals had used polka dots and so I changed my mind midstream and did the sides in Kaffe Fassett Spots.  When I look at the back like this, it looks like it is on crooked but I think I need to be more carful next time when I put the dotted fabric on so it is straight. 

I already have another box in mind and my brother Kelly is thinking about a fancy-schmancy custom box that he wants for his pictures and memorabilia that he collected on his trip to Paris and Italy a couple of years ago.
