Little Card Box




I’m posting a box I made. You are not going to believe where I copied this idea from. View the box, and you may have some idea. Well, I showed this to all my girlfriends last night, when we got together for cardmaking. They were oohing and aahing and I loved that. They could not believe how the 3 x 3 cards fit in the box so good. Well, I will tell you that I copied this from a Kotex lightdays box. I glued two pieces of certainly celery together, with a very small overlap, and unfolded the box to copy it. It fit on the two sheets exactly. After I traced and cut, I decorated the box and made the 3 x 3 cards from scrap papers. So, needless to say there is a little bit of everything. Don’t think I’m real bad silly for copying this box. The first time I opened it, I thought how good it would work for a card box. That is a crafter’s thinking! It is always how we can use some jar or box to make something out of it. I’m sure some of you know exactly what I’m talking about! Well, hope you enjoy the pictures of my little card box. Actually, I hope you get to try it, and get all the compliments that I got from my girlfriends. Have a great weekend! Toota-loo, Karen Linnea
