Fall Fest Craft Box of Cards

Happy Happy Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Last night I met my Doll Baby at CupCake-A-Go-Go for a yummy yummy cupcake.  Check out this loveable picture of the two of us.....
This was (OF COURSE).......after all the yummy frosting was cleaned off our faces!
 
My post today is one of the Projects we made at last Saturday's Fall Fest.....Check out this ADORABLE Craft Box of Cards we made........
We wrapped up one of the Kraft Gift Boxes on Page 161 and filled it with four little 4x6 note cards.  To finish off our box of cards 3-D gift.....we wrapped it up in one of the new Gusseted Cellophane Bags on Page 34 of the Holiday Catalog.
To cover our Kraft Gift Box and 4x6 notecards......we used the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.
We didn't cover the inside of our box - but did give our DSP a fun picnic blanket triangle look when we adhered it to the sides of our Kraft Box.
We added one of ther Brushed Bronze Designer Button with Linen Thread to the front panel of our Kraft Box for that little SOMETHING SOMETHING our box was needing.
Here's one of the versions of cards we made for our box. 
We used the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP to create our background and added a fun little piece of frayed 7/8" Cotton Ribbon across the center of our card panel.  It actually did an amazing job of hiding the two DSP seams.
This is the other version of the little 4x6 notecards we made for our 3-D box.
We used some of the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon around the center of our DSP to create a sassy little addition to our card.  For both versions used the Perfectly Preserved Bundle from the Holiday Catalog and the Labels Collection Framelits die.  The Framelits Label was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Folder and that gave our card just that little extra touch of texture.
 
This project was a total hit at the Fall Fest event and I can honestly see using this idea for some upcoming hostess gifts and birthday gift giving ideas.
 
I'll be back tomorrow to share a SERIOUSLY FUN Halloween card that we made at Fall Fest last Saturday.......Hope you can join me for that share.  We are also kicking off the long holiday weekend this evening with a back-yard BBQ at my daughter's house and I'll share pictures of that fun get together with you tomorrow morning.  Keep Living Your Dream!
