I am really enjoying creating these layered boxes! I know they have been around a while, but I haven’t seen new ones lately and it is fun to play with the ‘weave’ pattern on the side and create fun and appealing designs for the tops.
This box was inspired by the many Celtic designs I came across when looking for ideas to make some Celtic ornaments. The weave pattern on the top is reminiscent of Celtic knot designs and gives the box a definite Celtic feel.
I did not use a ‘font’ to create the monogram lettering (as I usually like to do in projects such as this). I chose to draw the lettering myself, using my calligraphic pen in my Photoshop program along with my Wacom tablet pen mouse. It took a while, but was fun and a new learning experience for me, and I am pleased with the results. I hope you are as well.
I have included the entire scrollable alphabet so that you can use the letters for other projects you may have. I hope you enjoy making it!
