Think outside the box

When we were first asked to make anything but a card I was like WHAT?!?!?! I love making cards how can I make anything but a card!!??! I went into denial then shock then I threw myself on the floor like a child kicking and screaming asking for my Mommy. Ok maybe I didnt do that (all excpet the on the floor thing...just kidding...or not... ) but I really had to stop and think of something else I wanted to make besides my beloved cards. I came up with the idea of making my daughter a Valentines Cards carrying box...thing...or whatever. Its a little box/bag she can use to carry her V-Day cards to school with and she also says she is going to use it as her 'mail box' and have the kids put their cards they are giving her into this bag/box thing. She is as happy with how it turned out as I am )and trust me she is VERY hard to please!!)

~*DCVW cardstock
~*Misc ribbon
~*Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge
~*Misc chipboard pieces
~*Fiskars scalloped edge scissors

I cut a strip of white paper with my Fiskars then folded it accordion style and glued the ends together

Cut out my box/bag on my Cricut then scored and glued it together

I then assembled the embellished flower thing in the center and glued it on with some ribbons and a little heart in the center. It will be perfect for her to carry her V-Day cards to school and look so cute sittine on her desk as her 'mail box'.
