I hope this was worth the wait! Anything BUT A Card Project #4

This afternoon I finally had everything aligning--I was done with work by 2, had the supplies I needed, the planets cooperated--and I was able to make the sample of the 4th project in the Anything BUT A Card class.This is the first picture of 2 of the sides of a chipboard coaster box! It's really quite simple to put together. I used the new Cerise designer paper--so chic!--and chose 4 patterns, two with a Very Vanilla background and two with a Real Red background. Here's the other picture so that you can see the entire box (sort of):
This box has a bottom on it, so it's a great for holiday food items, like homemade cookies, because it's 4" square. Hot cocoa mix would also fit nicely, neatly tied in a clear cellophane bag and nestled in some cute packing straw. Individually wrapped candies would work as well, and I could even see this with a wine bottle in it. FUN options abound!
Now that I've finished this, I have to scoot and figure out what to make for dinner. My dear husband just walked in the door and I got nada!!

JENNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

SHHH!!! I'm doing a coaster box for my cropadile camp, but I like yours better. A few questions - one, why are you so cool? Two, how did you attach the bottom?

OMG I love it with the "chic" paper!!!!
