A Card Box

I hopped on over, a few days ago, to 365 Cards and the first little challenge is to make a box of some sort to hold cards. Well I thought this was a fantastic idea for so many reasons, so I grabbed one of my silver Ikea boxes and got right to work. I used my craft room colors for the inspiration: Red, brown and pistachio green. This is what the final product looks like. I used SU paper from the Bella Rose, Rockabilly and Green Tea. For the inserts to separate types of cards, I used 2 colors of card stock also from SU. I rotated Riding Hood Red and Gable Green.
Then to trim the box, I used a few different items. Red cord, Moss Green Grosgrain ribbon, 2 white round brads, a few red buttons and some satin red ribbon for the bow.

This was an amazing project to do and I have officially crossed into altering items. This is going to become addictive isn't it. Hope you enjoyed this little box. Until next time

Happy Crafting

  17. What an awesome card box - it's gorgeous! Love the colours that you chose. You must have a 'happy' room to stamp in if these are the colours in there. I'm envious! :)
