Cafe Parisian Hexagon Box

By Alexandra Morein


"Café Parisian paper line is the best for making favor boxes, in my opinion. All the cut outs that you can get from the paper are perfect for embellishing birthday themed projects, with the sweet treats, cookies and pastries.

I would like to share a hexagon box (which I created from chipboard a while ago), embellished with the beautiful Café Parisian paper. The link to my old video tutorial for creating the box base may be found on my blog, and in the meanwhile I hope you will enjoy seeing the pictures of the final result here on the Graphic 45 blog." ~Alexandra Morein
