Card giftbox

Hello and Happy Friday blog friends! Today I have the start of a few linked posts showing you a set of cards I've made that would be useful for someone with lots of men in their life!

It's a CASE'd project that I saw on one of Kimberley Van Diepen's YouTube videos. I adapted it to make use of the set Plane & Simple from the Mini catalogue.

Here's a peek inside. Over the next couple of posts I'll show you the cards I've filled it with.

To make the box you make Basic Black base from a piece 7.25"x9.25" and you score at 1.5" on all 4 sides to create a basic box. The lid is Sahara Sand and was 9.25"x4.25" and scored at 1.5" across the shortest side at the top and bottom. You can use Velcro or mini magnets like I did to keep your box closed. Then on to decorate!!

Today we had a glorious cooked breakfast out on the patio in the warm sunshine - what a fabulous way to start the day!!! Sadly the weather has gone a little soggy now but I'm hopeful it will recover in time to enjoy an outdoor breakfast again tomorrow.
