Letters with a secret...

So with the help of lots of you, I went with version 2 as the most chosen of the envelopes to sit on the top of the pile... and have added a rose and some ribbon to tie the bundle up with.
and you would be forgiven for thinking that its pretty weird to want a pile of mail sitting somewhere... 

I have to admit, this image says 'love letters' to me... she almost looks sad, as if he were to be leaving for a long trip somewhere.
but if you lift the top letter inside is a little secret box.... for hiding things!
so you put it on your dressing table amongst all the perfume and pearls and nobody knows you have a secret hidey hole for those diamonds... or chocolates you don't want to share!! ;)


  1. Simply stunning, did you follow a tutorial for this? X

  2. Oh Annette that's fabulous!!!!!!

  6. Too late for a WOYWW comment but so glad I popped in to see this today - it really is beautiful Annette - clever you. x Jo

  7. LOve your secret little boxm what a great idea.
    Thanks for visiting my blog =)
    The embossing folder is from Sizzix: Texture Fades Diamond Plate & Rived Metal Set.
    I got it at a dutch art supply store (, but I guess any art supply store with Sizzix stuff would have them.

  8. so now I have box envy


    I am going through an envy phase. Everyone seems to be achieving so much. I am going upstairs to make little japanese women!!!

  9. I remember seeing someone make one of these years and years ago. She didn't line hers up, but made them look randomly placed. I actually like yours better. It looks more like a bunch of love letters. And I adore your knife skills.

    I see you put that stamp to good use, too. Clever you!! Adding the Eiffel Tower over the eye was the perfect way to cover a "mistake." Love that about you.

  10. Oh Annette, that is fabulous. What a fantastic idea and how lovely it looks, especially with the pearls, perfumes and things.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  11. That is so lovely, what a great idea. I can see it perfect for all sorts of occasions, especially Valentines or a special gift for a loved one.
    hope things are going well for you and you are settling happily.
