Custom Bling Box

Welcome back Chippie fans. Today I am here to share with you yet another video tutorial, but this time it isn't a canvas. This time it's to show you what you can build with plain uncut chipboard. This is a fun and custom made box especially designed to store my Memory Maze BLING.  
Bling Box
I started with plain 8"x8" chipboard pieces and designed this box myself for myself. So it's got a very girly colour palette with some white distressed trimmings. 
It does spread open as you can see in the photo below for easy access when needed. Then it can completely close into a box for when it's not being used. 


Some quick process photos; 
Made with just two 8x8" squares of chipboard.. 
First piece was turned into the frame.. I also cut off 4" from the top of this to make an extra large box for the middle,but didn't need it.. Instead it made a smaller box for the other side panel.. 

2 large middle boxes and 4 smaller side panel boxes.. 

Once the boxes have been cut, tape them together.. 
Then the panels are covered and the boxes were covered in Washi tape and the Bling Box starts being built.. 

The boxes are later painted white and some shabby chic edges with white paint also. 
Purple straws, mini flowers, twine, ribbon, lace and a button to finish off the embellishments for the inside of the box.. 

The Fancy Border chipboard piece from Memory Maze has been cut to suit the length of the panels, then heat embossed with purple powder and stuck to the back.. 

Thanks to my two boys.. Lane assisted me to put the boxes together and Hunter pictured below, was very generous with his creativity ideas.. :) 
As you can seek the box panels can fully close to make a boxed shape when not in use or completely spread open so you can see all the lovely bling inside..
