Whew, I'm still at this box thing and to some degree it is so worth it to use all this paper I've been hoarding.

Its amazing how many different paper packs I have in this one room...I wonder if I have crossed over from being a pack-rat to a mini hoarder. I tell my friends that if they see me becoming a hoarder to please get me help but I'm not sure they're listening to me since they too seem to be hoarders themselves.

This little box I found at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section, why it was there I'm not sure because it looked just fine to me so of course I purchased it and added it to my other boxes...until now.

I'll start by showing you the top of the box. The paper is the Bo Bunny "Country Garden" collection.


I did a little fussy cutting to give dimension to the butterflies and added a metal clock as well as a couple of metal corners. The chipboard "Believe" was painted using acrylic paint and then dabbed with a bit of distress ink.  I outlined the edge with a bit of trim to enhance the print on the paper.


The second photo gives you a clear view of the front of the box. 


The little label holder says "Country Garden" and works great as a drawer pull.

Having the drawer pull makes it easier to open the 4x6 drawer.  It will hold your standard photos perfectly.


The inside was painted white and then lined with more of the Country Garden collection. I tried to use just the paper designs with blue hues. 

 And one of my new found habits is to include a matching card with any altered art that I do. 

Doing this ensures that a card will be available regardless to whether I give it as a gift myself or sell it to someone.

I've also gotten into the habit of making an envelope every time I make a card.  It does save time in the long run although in some cases a handmade envelope just doesn't happen (smiles).

And now a peek at the inside of the card. The left side has a bit of print but I can't make out the words.


The right side has a pre-printed space for a personal note which I think is great.

So that it is all for now.  If you haven't added your name for this month's giveaway click here to do so now. 

Remember each month I will be giving away Spellbinders dies (3 each month) until I run out.


Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs from Texas
