A while back, Andrea Walford (Andrea's Stamping Blog in my blogroll) shared a wonderful tutorial she created with us on how to make a totally adorable 3 x 3 box to hold a set of 3 x 3 cards. Her blog is AMAZING! It is definitely one of my favorites and I really enjoy her clean and crisp style. Click on her blog in my blogroll or take a look at her 3 x 3 card box tutorial here.
I loved the layout of her box so I pretty much copied it. I changed the colors up a little and used some different stamps, but isn't it adorable??? I really liked her use of Old Olive for the actual box, so I picked some other colors that I thought went well with it. I will say it's a little hard (at least it was for me) to get a good fold of the outer papers/card stock that wrap around the box. Mine aren't as flush on the corners with the box as I would like. It was totally fun though, and worth learning how to make. What a cute gift set it will make once I can sit down and make some accompanying cards. If you like this box, don't only tell me, go to her blog and check hers out and thank her for sharing her template with all of us!!! Take care!!
