Perfect Package Card Box



Have you seen Taylor's new Perfect Package Card Boxes? Seriously, these things are AWESOME...if you try them, you will NOT be sorry. They're so nice and thick, and they fold up without any adhesive, scoring, or anything. Check out Taylor's video tutorial HERE.

I made this box for my daughter, who is going through a tough time right now. All stamps are from Taylored Expressions, everything was stamped in black craft ink and heat embossed with clear EP. I used specific elements on my box to fit in with Jami Bova, Jen del Muro, Laurie Schmidlin and Amy Sheffer's Dare to Get Dirty Challenges.

I left the box empty. I figured she can put it on her dresser or in her nightstand to keep special things that mean a lot to her, jewelry, photos she wants to scrapbook...stuff like that.

SUPPLY LIST ~
Stamps: TE Faith & Hope (sentiment), TE Beary Special (bear), TE Beary Special Accessories (flower)
Paper: SU Night of Navy, PTI Dark Chocolate, MME French Flea Market DP, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Black Craft Ink, Soft Sky, Pacific Point, Basic Brown, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, B39 Copic (to color the pearl)
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Blue Silk Ribbon, Bow Easy, Spellbinders Tag Trio, Kaiser Craft Pearl, Martha Stewart Cornice Punch


Thanks for stopping by!
