New Catalog Open House Project!

When I had my New Catalog Open House in July, we made this cute little box, which we ran through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. We used the hostess set, "Cute by the Inch," to make nine little cards that fit into the box. It was a fun project and I love how gorgeous the little box looks by embossing it! To make a box this tiny, which holds 1-1/2 X 1-1/2 cards, you cut two pieces of card stock at 3-1/4 X 3-1/4. You score one of the pieces on all four sides at 2-1/2", and then you score the other piece on all four sides at 2-5/8". The slightly larger one is the top of the box so that it will fit over the bottom of the box. Make one of these for your husband and tell him to fill it with a piece of jewelry for your next special occasion! It's always worth a try, right?

Since I started getting ready for school, then actually STARTED school, I haven't had time to stamp. I love your projects and workshops, Penny---thanks for a chance to see your great ideas.
