A few days ago, she did this Cupcake box . Please check out her blog for detailed instructions and dimensions necessary to make one of your own. So tonite, I sat down, pulled out my chipboard, some colorful papers and went to work.
I had bought some 12" x 24" from my local hangout, Michael's, a while back. It's a designer paperpad by K&Company. It has a glossy finish to it. I originally bought it so that I can make some larger purses using my Cricut machine, but hadn't gotten around to it. While watching the video, Kathy pieced together 2 pieces of paper so she'd have the correct length for this box. But since I had this paper on hand, I decided to give it a go.
I embellished the book with a layered flowered that I cut with my cricut using Plantin Schoolbook. I used a Velcro Hook and Loop circle and adhered it to the flap for closure.
I then made my own recipe cards to go in the envelopes. I hand drew the lines on the back of the cardstock and added matching tags.
Here is the box opened with the cards sticking out.
