Pocket Letters as card toppers.

I am not a big pocket letter maker, but love some of
the printable pocket letters from Sherri Baldy My Besties.

They are so cute and adorable, so I have been thinking of
other ways in how to use them and today I have for
you a way to use them.

I have used the printables as toppers with a twist for these.

I have done a double panel before you open to the card to add your sentiments.

I just love how they all turned out and it has made a nice card set from the
whole pocket letter printable.

The printable I used was the Circus Dreams Come True

I used pocket panels per card.

You can find more printable pocket letters HERE

Check them all out.

Treasure Box-Enjoy the little things

Hey everyone!  Today I have for you just a box, but this box
holds a secret that makes it so fun and interesting.

I made this little gem with a completely different idea in mind
for it.  I was trying out a different concept from a previous
version I had made, but wanted to have a completely removable
lid so it was easier to get into the boxes inside.

This is my previous box.

What you will need to make the box with lid.

1- 3 1/4" x 6 3/4" cardstock
1- 3 1/4" x 7 1/4" cardstock
2- 5" x 5" cardtstock
1-5 1/4" x 5 1/4" cardstock

Let's start with the lid.  This is the 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 cardstock

Score all four sides at 1" and cut slits like the picture above.

Glue your tabs to the inside.

Do the same thing with the boxes for the inside.  These are the 5 x 5 pieces
Score all sides at 1" and cut your slits.

Now we will move onto the box frame to hold it all together.
You will need the other 2 pieces of cardstock.

Score the 3 1/4 x 7 1/4 at 1/2', 3 5/8" and 6 3/4"
Score the 3 1/4 x 6 3/4 at 1/2", 3 5/8"
Taper your 1/2" tabs.

Attach the panel with the 1/2" tabs to the right side of the other panel
so you have 1/2" tabs on both ends.

Fold and glue the tabs down.

To clean the inside up and make a more finished piece, I added
3 1/4" x 3" panels to each section.

Now take your boxes and attach.

Add your lid and it is complete.

Once you have the basic structure you can embellish.

What I used to embellish my box is papers and a Pocket Letter
from Sherri Baldy My Besties.

You can find this PL HERE

I have also used the Designer Papers
Butterfly Dreams.
You can find the downloadable paper pack HERE
