weekend work

Ornament box - pizza box on a diet.

I picked up the Paper Crafts Holiday Cards issue and this was on the same page as the card below. It is supposed to look like a gift on the front of the card.  I could have used a different paper and a larger bow, but oh well.  The button has a big brad fed through the holes and wrapped around the bow.  My Friend, Sharon, showed me this trick.  I thought it was pretty clever.

Deneen Treble made a card like this, Then I saw that my friend Sharon had also made one and she showed me the original in the Holiday Cards magazine.  Love it.  It is so simple and so darn cute.

I am anxious to get back to my book so I will say goodnight and thanks for tuning in.


  1. Great box and cards, Leslie! Especially love the snowman.

  2. Nice cards. Your snowman is simply adorable, love his little stick arms.

  3. These are such great projects, Leslie! I especially love the 'gift' card. I will definitely give that bow trick with the brad a go - sounds really neat!

  4. Love these cards but that snowman is just adorable! Consider it CASEd!!!!
