Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Card Storage Box

Hello everyone!

I have my cards available for purchase at work in the teacher’s lounge, (lucky me)

but have wanted to make a more attractive way to display them.

(BTW I donate almost half the proceeds to our Relay for Life team every year.)

Well, I finally came up with an alternative.  Yes, I know I could have gone to Michaels eons ago

and purchased a pretty box to use, but I wanted to make something myself!

Mind you this isn’t drop dead gorgeous or wasn’t to difficult to make….its

very basic and simple….just like me!

Here are a few snap shots !

IMG_0007Someone gave this box to my hubby at work…they are always donating to the art teacher!  Lucky Me!


I have had this paper since the dawn of time….no really I have!  Had to keep with the green theme

so the base would match.


After they were punched, I used my Scorpal to help make a definite center so that wrapping

these strips on the edges of the box became easy!  Love my Scor-Pal!


Cut out the letters with my Cricut.

Embossed them with my Cuttlebug Dots folder.

Backed them with my SU label punch,added some flowers

and used pop dots to give them some height.

IMG_0004Decided to alter the divider tabs to make them my own instead of what they had already written.

Excuse the sides of my light box…I didn’t want to crop the photo…wanted to leave it as is!

Each card is in a plastic sleeve for protection from fingers!

Thanks for stoppin’ in to check on me!

I will be back tomorrow night with my 500th post SURPRISE Blog Candy Giveaway WINNER!

Good Luck!
