Fun Fold Friday!!

Hello everyone and hello Friday (how I have missed you Friday!) I am sorry that there was no Thursday post but I am in the middle of a sales meeting and I simply ran out of time for everything I had planned and the job that pays the bills comes first--even though I wish I could make my living crafting!!

So this week I have a video of how to make a gift box for  your A2 cards--it is quick and easy and you can embellish it a million ways to Tuesday!



Don't forget to leave comments--and since I was not able to post yesterday--today's comment count as double!!!  There is the $25 in Close to My Heart product (you get to pick) for this weeks give away and of course the Cricut Imagine that will be given away on March 5. Only one more week to get all you entries in.
See you back here on Monday--make it a great one

  15. Great box for holding a set of note cards or greeting cards that you've made to give as a gift! You could make the box coordinate with the cards!
    I would've never looked at the Preserves cart for that label you used! I really need to look at my cart handbooks carefully and use them more often! Maybe you could do a week-long series on various carts ~ devote a week of projects to a specific cart using cuts that often get overlooked!
    Thanks for the box idea!

  65. This is such great information, Bryan! I made a box like this at a Stampin' Up class but didn't have the measurements... Now I do! These boxes (full of handmade cards) make such wonderful gifts.
    (One suggestion... Please change the frame size when you embed your videos so we can see the entire picture. I was able to hunt you down on YouTube though (link not available on the video due to frame size) and am now subscribed to you there as well. Thanks!)
