I'm noticing a couple of new followers that I'd love to welcome!!! I hope you'll make yourselves at home and come often. I love having you, and if I can find you I'll be visiting with you as often as I can too!
Moving along, I've got another box with one of my handmade flowers to share. I told you you'd be seeing these flowers and I'm having a great time putting them on these boxes. Eventually I'll get them all used up (maybe not all on boxes though)!
This box is an A2 card box and will hold 6 - 8 cards with envelopes. Now, there's a story behind this box; the cut.file I used was my very FIRSTcut.file!!! I can't believe I actually stumbled across it after almost 2 years! I was looking through some of my box cut.files, found this, and had to have some fun with it. I'll tell you what I mean by that in a moment; first, here's the box:
Doesn't it look soooo pretty? The paper I used is from the DCWV Luxury Stack and it's sort of platinum colored with gold designs in it. I added an old earring to the flower, and edged the lip and edges of the flap of the box with gold Stickles to complete it (you know I love my Stickles).
Okay now, maybe not by looking at it, but this box is really absolutely horrible -- the cut.file, that is!!! Sure it works, but if you could actually see the cut.file itself, I would be totally embarrassed. I can't even believe -- now -- that when I finally completed this box almost 2 years ago and put it together I was sooooo happy with it and proud of it!!! It's not that I'm that great at creating cut.files 2 years later, but I'm a heck of a lot better compared to this one!!! When I opened this cut.file and looked at it, I thought I'd laugh myself sick it was so bad!!! But like I said, it worked! It's hard for me to believe by looking at the cut.file but it does come together.
So, because of the bad cut.file, I have not provided you a cut.file of this one. However, I am going to redo it and post a cleaner and more user-friendly cut.file of this A4 box for you... But, like I mentioned earlier, I had to have some fun with it!
Looks can be deceiving can't they!!! LOL!!!
I'll be seeing you!
