Boxes, Boxes, Boxes


Hi Everyone,


Hope you all enjoyed a fabulous weekend and had lots of time to stamp. My weekend flew by, spending time with my two beautiful grand-daughters, my kids and designing these boxes.

I wanted to design boxes that fit my A2 and my 5 x 5 square cards, and after ruining ten sheets of card stock, I finally figured out how to make these boxes which fit my cards perfectly. I decided to teach this box class for the month of May along with five cards and matching envelopes . It's a perfect gift for any occasion and is so easy to make. I had so much fun making these sets, that I couldn't stop making them. If you are in the Toronto area, come and join us at Pointers Scrapbooking store http://www.pointerscrapbooking.com/ for this fun filled class.

I fell in love with Basic Grey Kioshi paper, Graphic 45 and Fancy Pants paper. Aren't they gorgeous. I also used EKsuccess border punches, Maya Roads satin ribbon and Jollee's rhinestones.

The cards are packed away for my class but I will post them in a few weeks. 'till then I hope you enjoy the boxes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

Nicky
