I hope this post isn't too long! My sister's and I are doing a Craft Fair in two weeks!
We have all been working on many different projects - so I thought I would share my newest project!
I found this technique on Pinterest (of course) -and fell in love with it! Monica Gale does a fabulous video with great instructions! She does do the measurements in Centimeters. I will give you the measurements in inches below. At least it is the measurements I used. Check out her video first to get an idea of how to make this adorable card/box!
2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4 and 11 inches. Then turn your card stock so the short side is at the top of your score board and score at 2 3/4. You can follow Monica's instructions from here. I didn't add the measurements for the decorative paper since I think everyone may have a different idea of how much of a rim they like to have showing around your decorative paper.
For the inserts measurements - I used 3.75 inches x 1 inch and then scored each end at 1/2 inch.
I used the owl punch to make the little penguins. Their little flippers are the ears of the owls. I love that Stampin Up punch!

Here is another peaceful scene that I made using a bunch of different tree dies and a Memory Box die of deer. I don't think you can see all the glitter I used on the trees. This box is one of my favorite.
I love how these boxes fold and can be mailed quite easily! I will be making some envelopes with my Envelop Punch Board.
also a cat sitting on the window sill. I used the Madison Window from Memory Box. I did cut it down a little so it didn't stick up quite as high. The tree is from a Martha Stewart punch.
Here is a shot of all three! I am going to make a few more and then start on something else. We only have 2 weeks! Yikes! Next year we will plan to start earlier!!
