The Challenge, Box 7

Star – Little Bead Boxes – Julia S. Pretl

This blog has moved and will no longer be updated at this location. Please go to and follow the blog to get notified of new content.

Box #7 is called “Star”. This is the first of the pentagon boxes and it is very small, only 4×4 cm. This is (so far) my favourite box because the pentagon shape allowed the base to be completely flat.
I used the colors listed in the book with just one exception, the bronze is not the same bronze as listed but it still looks the same.

I will probably make more of this box once I’m done with this challenge.
