As You Like It Challenge #77 Anything But a Card and WHY

Hi Crafters,

I'm here today for the new challenge at As You Like It which is 'Anything But a Card'.
We'd like to see your favourite non-card creations and WHY you love making them.

I love decorating wooden trinket boxes for presents and for selling on my stall.  This beautiful lace and pearl trim worked beautifully together and I'd had these porcelain and ribbon flowers in my stash for ages and wanted to incorporate them in the design too.
