Let's go SOS Flight box

Hello my dear crafty friends! This is Irit from Irit Shalom Designs here today and I am going to share my May tutorial made with Let's go pack.
Actually I needed to highlight the new Papericious flowers in this post together with this paper collection,
but as this collection is so much " out of the flower zone" I decided to skip this part of a tutorial and to make something that each and every one can use-  Flight survivor First aid box.
This is not a real First aid box and you wouldn't see much medical things inside (you sure can add some analgesic or sleeping pills there). This is a box that everyone who flies needs badly and I made it for my  oldest son's family who had a very long connection flight from Israel to L-A about two weeks ago right when I had to make my project tutorial.
The first good thing in this project is that you really need it.
The second good thing is that you can recycle an old box and to make the Earth a bit more green.
So this is what I call a WIN-WIN project and I hope that you think so too.
And all you need is Papericious most gorgeous new collection " Let's go" and a bit of imagination.

So here are a few close- ups for the finished project and the full step by step tutorial will come after the introduction.

 And now for the full step by step tutorial:

1. Find and box that is big enough to include the pocket size book inside and a bit more of things.I really advice you to recycle!
This is a box that I found and was in the perfect size for this project.

2. Paint all over the box with white Papericious gesso . If you really like the Kraft color you can leave the box in the original color as the Let's go collection fits this color too.

3. Die cut the paper layers to cover the lid and front and the inside of the box.
I used Cherry Lynn Designs very old set of nested scalloped dies , but any set of nested dies that fits the size of your box will do the job.Pick three cardstocks  and try to stay in three colors system as I did here.

4.Cover the front with the half of die cut pieces as shown.  Ink all edges with black ink .Add the saying made from the  collection cardstock.

5. Cover the lid with inked die cut cardstock pieces as shown.

6. Cover the inside of the box as shown:

7. Arrange the first embellishments layer over the lid . I made some themed die cuts; painted and heat embossed Papericious chipboards and added some more cardstock pieces form Let's Go collection.

8. Arrange all other embellishment piece as shown on the finished box. Some of the Papericious themed chipboards were heat embossed with red embossing powder to make a bit of a color pop.
I die cut the letters using MFT dies and Papericious patterned cardstock and inked the letter edges with black ink. More cardstock sayings were added over the finished box.

9. And now for the purpose of this box: things I added inside.
First I was thinking about the " flight" book and decided to make a couple of book marks from the leftover cardstock pieces. Pieces of Papericious yellow cord were added on the top.

 And this is what I put inside the box.
 Don't you want such a nice haul for your next flight?
But first you need to make this lovely Papericious box!
