Envelope Punch Board hexagon box CTC#19 and FMS175

Very quick post today as life has been disrupted her for the last week after Cyclone Marcia swept through our town. We were so fortunate not to have any major damage, but it has been very hot without power for 6 days.
CTC asks us to use new buttons and ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue, and I used the FMS sketch as the inspiration for the gift tags to go with the gift boxes, although I flipped it upside down.


FMS #175 using You Brighten my Day
EDITED on 13/03

EDITED 01/03 I have had several requests for the instructions on how to make this box. I wish I could say I designed it but I can't take that credit. I found the inspiration on Pinterest (source of many wasted moments but masses of inspiration!) and I would like to thank the lovely Debbie Henderson who put together a tutorial. you can see it here-
I do have lots of great pins of tutorials etc and you can follow me on Pinterest, and I also have a Facebook page -Lillybet's Papers where I post some of my creations etc.
I am thrilled to say that theses boxes were the winning entry on CASEing the Catty last week. It really is a great source of  inspiration, you should check out the design team entries and join in!
