Scallop Top Itty Bitty Box captures the hearts of recipients everywhere. This teeny tiny box with a cute scallop top makes a perfect container for giving little gifts.

While only being 2½” by 1½” , this little box is adorable. Since I was crafting with my granddaughter, everything had to have mermaids or fairies on it. Magical Mermaids stamp set has a perfect little mermaid silhouette to decorate the front of this box. Because this box (?) goes together quickly it is perfect for making multiples.

Scallop top Itty Bitty Box 2Here is a side view of my version. The Eastern Palace Thinlits has a nice little flourish to frame the circle with the Mermaid in it. Next I sponged the circle with Lemon Lime Twist ink  and added Wink of Stella to the mermaid as finishing touches.  Finally I also added some smokey translucent dots with some Nuvo Jewel Drops.  Who should I gift this darling little box to? Maybe it will be you. Let me know and I will send this one on to a new home.
