Family Card Box

The box is Dollarama $1.50.  I should have bought more than just one! 
  I CASED (Copy and Selectively Edit) the idea from Nathasha Zandbergen at Splitcoast Stampers.  She had done a 12 X 12 framed piece that is really beautiful.  I just sized it down and added a little more to cover the top of the box.  I would have changed the papers in order to make it look different, but I have tons of this Garden Greenhouse DSP, so stuck with these colors.

A strip of co-ordinating paper is added  to the box base to tie them together.  So there you have it - a sweet little box to house an assortment of cards either for yourself or as a gift.

A lot of different supplies used here!

Paper:  Greenhouse Gala, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso
Punches:  1 1/4" and 1 3/8" square, three hearts,
Dies:  Little Leaves, Swirly, Butterflies, Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Stamp Sets:  Itty Bitty, I {heaart} Hearts,
Ink:  Baja Breeze and Early Espresso to distress the white box
plus more!

Thanks for looking - hope you are enjoying your Labour Day weekend!
