Box o Cards

OK Blogger about drove me to dive head first into a vat of hot fudge but it appears to be cooperating now. Hot fudge is still an option though.

Here's something I did for a craft fair. Started off thinking I would make packages of notecards (4.5x5.5). then decided to use the scraps on tags, then decided hmmm maybe I'll make a coordinated set. I do things backwards so I'll show the evolution of this backwards too. And the last shall be first:
I love my Mom who gives me craft supplies as presents
I painted the whole thing in taupey/tan acrylic paint and then Mod Podged some scrapbook paper (Paper Pazazz) onto it, finishing it with K&Co scrapbook borders. Sealed the whole thing w/ more MP and then added a vinyl accent piece (one of my $.25 scores from JoAnn's). Finished the box with crumpled paper flowers, a button, and a rhinestone:
Here's what will go inside:
Papers: M&My Big Ideas and K&Co; self adhesive borders K&Co

Is it a bad thing to dive head first into a vat of hot fudge?
Happy weekend.

Love it, what a glorious package! Also, aaagh! Your background spiders are freaking me out! In kind of a good way, though.

What a beautiful set that is! I love the box. Diving into hot fudge can be good for many different scenarios, yes?

Suz said...

What a great idea! That is a beautiful set. Right now, I would like to eat all that fudge. I am just dying for some good fudge!
