Hi!! I'm back with my next project!! I love the easel cards I've been seeing around...thought I'd give it a try as a box. Click here for the pattern. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Apply double stick tape on the 4 tabs. Below is a picture of the box closed (tied shut with a ribbon):
And here's a picture of the box opened:
This side view shows how the easel part works:
Of course, I had to do one for the holidays:
If you look closely, you can see where I've been having fun with Flower Soft (to make the stocking look fluffy). I wonder if it comes in brown...that might work well on the bear!!
I can imagine handing these out at the office for your co-workers to keep on their desks!!! Are you starting to get your holiday mojo? This next card is a little departure from the easel boxes, but I threw it in today because I was playing around with my "chick" stamps and wanted to share it. The only new stamps are the chick carrying the candy cane and the "Friend for all seasons" stamp...the rest are from previous releases. When I was designing my holiday line, I noticed that I had a chick stamp for every season but winter. Then I thought..."friend for all seasons" and knew I had to do a winter chick!! Here's the card:
Here's the giveaway for today (I know the 3 chick stamps are not new...but, how could I break up the set???):
To win these stamps, leave me a comment by midnight (Hawaii time) on Sunday, August 29...tell me a little about your "friend for all seasons". I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Monday, August 30.
