I was exploring the SCS Stampin Up gallery last night and came across this amazing little box. It only take one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock. Silvia at Mabie Stampin has the cutest example and a tutorial how to make them. It was so quick. I don't have alot of time tonight for embellishing it because I am filling it full of chocolate heading off to give it to a friend in need of cheering up. But you could decorate it any way you wanted. Love it!!!! Thanks Silvia

I put in a jumbo eyelet to put in the ribbon pull. I did it after the box was made. You might want to think about how you will open the box and do it before you glue the box. My cropadile barely made it. But I guess if you had the new Big Bite it wouldn't matter.

How did she do that?

Stamps and Ink: None this time
Paper: Paper Studio from the LSS
Embellishments: Prism Flowers, jumbo eyelet, the jumbo brad and dream I have had so long I don't remember who make them sorry.
Tools: large and small retro flower punch, cropadile, and foam pop up dot

Okay I am off to get the chocolate!!!! I imagine there will be a few peices that just don't make it into the box...:0)

Happy Wednesday to YOu!!

PS........I just noticed I think this card would make a great box for ATC's
