SS Card Box for Grandma


This is a box that I made to hold some cards that I made for my mom. I used the idea from Andrea. She learned how to do this at a SU mini convention. She has a wonderful tutorial which can be found here.

I used the SS kit from the SAB campaign. The bottom of the box is basically the "Paper Crafts" tote. Then the lid is scored and tied closed with ribbon. This box could be made to fit any size card. I did this one to hold normal (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") cards.

Stamps: None
Paper: SAB SS kit
Inks: None
Extras: Tool kit, Eyelets, Celery Ribbon, corner rounder punch
