The minute I saw this fabulous flip top box created by Kirstin Davies of PaperTreeLane.com, I knew I had to do whatever it would take to make one of my own. For the small price of $5 to purchase the tutorial, I had detailed, step-by-step instructions, complete with pictures, for 2 sizes of these great boxes. Think Crayola crayon box, but for cards!
The one I made is the smaller of the two versions she demonstrates how to construct, and it isn't really full with 9 cards in it! It uses 2-8.5" x 11" sheets of card stock, and it's quick and easy. The decorating was the part I lingered over, including a 30 min. experiment of creating the button closure, and it was a very relaxing, therapeutic venture.
The base is Baja Breeze (please bring it back, SU!), and the coordinating DSP is from A Walk in the Park, which I'd also love to see return.
I can't share the details of this creation here, but if you'd like to make this and some cards with some friends, I can make that happen. These will make great coworker, neighbor, teacher Christmas gifts. Why not get ahead of the holiday craziness and plan a time to get some of these socked away? You'll be glad you did and so will the friends you invite. Contact me for details.
