My fellow Crafty Cardmakers DT sisters Jenni & Corry are on the DT over at Creative Inspirations Challenges and they have a great challenge at the moment which is to make a Christmas Gift. We had a similar challenge a couple of weeks back and my fellow teamie Melly had a fab link to a tutorial on this post for a card box.
I had seen one like this a long time ago and thought it looked like a great gift, but having seen Melly's recent one it spurred me on to have a go.
The instructions were quite good and it was a case of measuring and cutting all the individual pieces and then deciding how to decorate it. I used making Memories Cosmopolitan papers and some flowers from stash with a bead cap and a posh Papermania brad for decoration.
Inside I made a little book which is bound together with a thin ribbon. This is attached with a velcro tab so it can be removed. I have added some cards from my stash which all fit in okay, but the envelopes were a bit too big so I have folded them up. I have also added various die cut tags from my stash. Just need to pop some stamps in and it is the perfect gift.
I'd like to have a go at another one using A3 card and adapt the measurements so you could get wider cards in there. It would be a shame to have to keep folding the envelopes up just because they are a tad too big. Overall though, for a 1st attempt I am quite pleased with it.
