So yesterday I found this amazing idea on a few different sites and blogs and decided I HAD to try it. It is a card sorter box. So as I go forward in trying to sell my cards and grow my business, I thought this would be wonderful to sell a complete set of christmas cards in, or a non christmas box and do a card for every occasion, or a box full of thank you cards etc. so last night in the time it took me to watch finding nemo lol this is what i came up with. not bad for a first try with no templates just trying to do it on my own. a few small booboos, there is a small tear in one of the seams on the inside, and the ribbon tie was too low and ended up being under the flap, so hopefully tonight i can finish decorating and embelishing it and figure out a way to keep the flap down without destroying it trying to move the ribbon.
sites i used for ispiration and technique - (http://mabiestampin.blogspot.com/2008/04/another-week.html , and http://dawnsspecialcreations.blogspot.com/2008_08_01_archive.html , and a video tutorial on http://sbl.tvweekly.com/player.php?083570fcf5fb5d868aee9fba4e3b9d12w6845)
