Happy Monday morning.....

my friends. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I have a little box purse to share with you all. I have been playing around with some ideas I had in my head for a while now and yesterday I just sat down and actually made one that I think will come in handy to give away some chocolates, earrings or other little gifts. It is a pretty sturdy little box as I only cut of two small sections and folds all the rest inside the box. It is a pretty simple box, but can be dressed up or dressed down, whatever your needs might be :D.

To give you the basic directions here is what you'll need:

Cardstock of your choice cut to 6"x11".

Now on to the scoring on the LONG (11") side score at 2,5,7,10

turn your cs to the SHORT (6") side and score at 2" and 4 ".

This is a very sturdy box and holds 9 Ghirardelli chocolates or 15 and more little Dove Bliss chocolates with no problem.

For the handles I simply cut a piece of ribbon 10" long and fold in 1/2", to make it a clean edge, punched a hole with my punch added a small brad and attached it to the box.

To make the top flap of the box a little more sturdy I cut a piece of DP to 3"x3", scored it at 1" and cut the edge with some scalloped scissors and adhered it to the top of the flap. To keep my flap closed I added a small magnet closure and decorated a little.

Have a look.

Paper: PTI True Black, Basic Grey Boxer

Accessories: Primas different flowers in orange, SU hardware, Making Memories silver brads, black satin ribbon, silver half pearls, Nesties Labels 4

If you have any questions about this box, feel free to contact me. I'll try to get a tutorial together for better understanding. I am a visual person myself, so I think it will be a little easier to understand having pictures ;P.

I was so excited about this little box that I just had to show it to you all :D.

Thanks for stopping by this morning and make sure, if you have not done so, to sign up for the Blog Candy I am offering for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Birthday Party. I will pick a winner tonight at 6:00pm Mountain time!!!!!!

Have a great day big {{{HUGS}}},
