Recipe/Card Box

This is one of my favorite My Creations items.  (Did I say that yesterday about the Display Album?)  It is so versatile, and I have used this for many things.  I have one for my vitamins, one for cards from my team members, and I have one for photos.  I can think of many other uses, too!  Well, for this one I used the delicate fall floral pattern of Clementine.

One of the wonderfully unique cuts from the Artiste cartridge is the yo-yo flower.  I love making these will all of the different scallops and cuts.  I added floral doily from the Bohemian Assortment and then a rolled flower on top of that.  I tucked some burlap under the flower, and I am going to give you a tip about this.  You need to make sure that the flower and ribbon are really secure because you will be opening and closing the box often.  I used Liquid Glass to put together the flowers together, and I also used it on the burlap.  I'll tell you, that flower and ribbon are not moving!

As you can see, I turned this into a card box for the Operation Smile auction.  I cut the file tabs using the Artiste cartridge and simply stamped them with the November Stamp of the Month (mark your calendar -you will like that one!).

All of the items used to make this box can be found on my website!
