Mygrafico Monday Challenge ~ Back to School Steampunk

Mygrafico challenge for the next two weeks is "Back to School"  The design team had a bit of a challenge to use a Steampunk set

Stampunk SVG Templates
 I have to admit the other's came up with some fun cards and boxes....
I decided to do a couple of boxes to show what can be done with this set.  I don't have an electronic cutting machine, so used the JPEG templates and cut out the boxes by hand.

Lots of images from the set.

For my second box, I increased the size of the template and used some  pretty green paper and made a flower topper.

This would make a great box for giving a little gift for a teacher.

And here are the two boxes together.
Do pop over to the blog and have a look at what everyone else did, and join our challenge.

I'm off to do some commission orders tonight.. 3 cards for a lady at work...
Have a great week ~ only 2 weeks till I have a nice one week break over in Australia... looking forward to it so much... need the break away.

Wow, wonderful boxes Dawn. Impressive! These boxes are perfect for presents.

I love the one with the two toned flower on the top.

The other one would be great is a masculine one.

Some other wonderful creations on the blog too.

Such cool boxes, Dawn! You don't really need an electronic cutter--you did an excellent job by hand. The green flower is especially gorgeous!
