here. I covered the sides with the same embossed design as the cards, and instead of making a handle, I added a rhinestone in each of the 4 colors I used for the cards. Beth decorated the front of her box with a button, but I used a nature quote on a die cut and put two little Swarovski crystals on each end of it. I didn't have any envelopes for these cards, so I used my Enveloper to made some, and that was quite a challenge. They needed to be slightly larger than regular 3x3 envelopes since the distressed cs on the front of the cards is bulky, but they need to be small enough to fit inside the little box. It's amazing how precise the measurements have to be to get certain sized envelopes. To create a 3-3/16" square envelope, I had to cut the paper at 5-13/32" square. Just 1/32" off, either way made the envelope unusable for my purposes!!! Amazing!
Well, I think I'll go take a nap, now. :) I've been running on just a couple hours of sleep for the past few days, trying to get all these challenges completed.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
