HOUSE WARMING GIFT








I was checking everyone's blogs this morning and Siliva at mabiestampin had two things published and this cute file box was one of the. Congrats Silvia!!!! When I saw it I knew it would be perfect for my son and his wife who are building a house. They can use it to write down all the info on their house. Paint colors, carpet, plant names, anything they need to keep track of with their house.
My daughter in law likes clean lines and tailored so that is how I tried to keep the file.

It was really easy to follow her tutorial. But I am super messy with glue. No matter how hard I try I get glue everywhere. I think one of my problems is that I don't have the patients to let the glue dry. I want to move on!!! I stuck to the box a few times :0) I used red line tape as much a possible.

HOW DID SHE DO THAT?

Stamps: Lovely Letters Alaphabets
Ink: Close to Cocoa and Pacific Point
Paper: Whisper White, Brown and Torquise cardstock, Wild Asparagus DP
Tools: 1, 1 1/4, 1 3/8 squard punch, red line tape, turnbow glue, glue dots, velcro, tab punch
Embellishments: Buttons

It's still gray and rainy here in Texas...can't get any really good pictures....Sorry!!!

I am going to go and try to get all this glue off me and create some more. LOL
Thanks for the visit

Would it be too expensive to make this in a class like we had last time? I would love to do that again. Kelsey
