Here are a couple of pics I have taken of a "Scallop Box" I have just made using a template from Mirkwood Designs Templates - great range of templates on this site. I covered the cardboard with beautiful Japanese papers then assembled the top and bottom and they "scallop" together as you can probably tell from the photos. You make a top and bottom for the box from the same pattern. The image on the top is from a fantastic artist Chris Stern from CS Designs - this is one of her Asian Designs. I have coloured it with copics and layered it on card and attached a Japanese embellishment to it and stuck it to the top of the box. I haven't made anything with an Asian Flavour for awhile so I enjoyed this - I even made an Origami Paper Crane!
