Circle Box...

Happy Sunday,

A really simple little box today that I had to make when I realised the tonic trellis die would make a fab circular lid!


  1. Hi John
    A very clever use of the Tonic circle die.So pretty.

  2. Good morning John,
    Wow! oh! Wow! love, love, love everything about this beautiful box.
    Don't have the Tonic Circle Dies but I do have Circles, might have a go at this.
    Maybe a Tutorial would be good!!!
    Have a fantastic day

    Looking forward to seeing you later at the workshop.

  5. Wow a circular box, really lovely but it must have been tricky to make!

  6. Hi John this circular box is beautiful would be great to have a tutorial.

  7. Morning John, that is a cute little box, the die fits so well on the lid.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

  8. Morning John, So very beautiful !! and such a gorgeous circle die for the top.
    I was disappointed that you weren't there at Bolton yesterday, I was so hoping that you were there both days, never mind - next time maybe hahaha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. A beautiful box John. Though it would need to be someone special to tempt me into trying to make one lol.

    Hugs Helen xxx

  10. Hi John sorry you weren't at Bolton yesterday had a great time
    Love this box the trellis fits perfect
    Love June horrocks xxxxx

  11. Beautiful box I'd love a tutorial on this especially the lid It looks like there isn't a side/edge to it So does it just rest on top or is the "seal" on the inside? Or does it just "rest" on the top?

  12. A really pretty box, John. See you shortly!

  13. Gorgeous creation, I agree with the other-we need a Tutorial.


  14. Nice to see a circular box for a change. Lovely for home made chocolates. SueL x

  15. Hi John. Beautiful box, like others could we have a tutorial when you have time. Love Rosemarie X

  16. Lovely box, that Die is so useful, must put it on my shopping list. We mere mortals need the instructions John, how to construct it please.

  17. Eh up John
    You know what I'm going to say lol! Sorry, the rolled up felt on the top doesn't float my boat but as Granny Sue
    says, nice to see a circular box and great use of the lattice again.
    Have fun at Colemans today.

  20. Hi John thinking outside of the box again!! Great idea to use the Tonic die for the top decoration. Love from Jackie xx

  21. Hello John, a beautiful box, love the roses on the lid. Have a great Sunday everyone. Bx

  22. Hi John

    Cute box, gorgeous lid but now when I see felt flowers I think of Mrs Duck! LOL

  23. AHA!!! this is definitely on the lines of a Gene Doll hatbox - do we have any dimensions please? Also, did you make the box itself from scratch? If so, how?? (I have a lot of Gene doll cocktail hats that need a box!).
    If it WAS a hatbox, this opens up loads more decorating possibilities. I'm loving all this new stuff - thanks John.

  24. Beautiful box John, would make that gift all the more special, Kate x

  25. Hi John. I would have to agree that the die makes a really fab lid for a circular box. I always struggle with circular boxes but yours looks really great. Aren't you clever!


  26. Hi John. Love the box, love the flower, love everything about it. Very clever.
    Love Valxxx

  27. Hi John, such a pretty box and the circle die is beautiful.

  28. You certainly are getting lots of uses out of this Trellis die. Good when one can get more than one use out of a die.

  29. Hi John.
    what a very brilliant box and a gorgeous design also.
    That wonderful die looks so super on the lovely lid.
    Beautiful bow and flower.
    Round boxes are pigs to make as I only made one once, and that was enough for me.
    It was for a round card for my sister.
    Sadly I forgot to photograph it.
    Not sure if I would ever attempt one again. LOL.
    Have a wonderful day today.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.

  30. Good afternoon John
    Oh goodness this may as you say be simple but it's definitely gorgeous! Can you tell us just how it was made please?
    Have a good day
