Today's project is a little one that I put together this last week in anticipation of Mother's Day more as a little gift but you could of course use it for anything. It is a little card box that will hold about 6 cards and envelopes or I was able to get a candy bar in there as well!
The image is from the Magnolia Butterfly collection called Tilda with a bee- now I am not sure I would be so cute holding a bee! LOL. I inked her with Momento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Paper and then colored her with coordinating copics, which I like to pick out and match to my paper before I even get started. The paper itself is from a K&Co collection that I have. The little rick rack ribbon is from a recollections pack (cute huh?) and then the big ole' prima with the mom charm in it (thanks to Cindy for those!) The little shape behind Tilda is a nestabilities label 1
The back side of the box I did simple, it just has a strip of the eyelet border across it. Then I used a little velcro to hold it closed. But I did punch, using my circle punch a half circle so that the cards and envelopes can easily be pulled out of the box. Then you can fill the box with a variety of items based on the size. The finished size of the box is 6x4.5x.5 inches. I will put together a little tutorial on making it and post it at a later date if you would all like it.
So that is it for the day- have a fabulous day!~ Heidi
