Now that all of the deets are out of the way, let's get on with seeing what I created with this fun new template shall we? This little box was crated with it being able to hold and display photographs in mind but there are so many other uses also. What about a box to hold your finished A2 sized cards that you keep on hand or even recipe cards? It's be perfect for recipes since you can set the easel up to hold the recipe for you. I didn't make my little box for any of those uses, I had another use in mind. How many of you gals die cut/punch a shape/image for use on a card but then change your mind? What do you do with that die cut/punch, throw it away wasting it or do you save it? I tend to save mine, I throw them in a little basket and then never use them because there's no organization to my little basket of goodies, I might as well just had thrown them away in the first place...sigh. Well no more, look what I decided to do with my little easel top box....
closed box - tab on "easel" slips under the label keeping the lid secured
to make the "easel", lift the tab part only and slip it under the "bar" on the top of the box
the box comes with dividers so it's easy to find pictures, recipes, or even die cuts
Since I want to use my box to hold die cuts, I took it one step further and designed a little "envelope" to hold them. However, if you wanted, you could easily use a regular envelope.
Now I kept my box a little plain by using black & cream cardstocks since I'm using it for die cuts, but just think of the different things you could add to it...use pretty patterned papers, make little corner pieces, ribbons, flowers...ohhh my, the possibilities are endless!!
If you'd like the measurements / directions for my little envelopes just drop me an email and I'll get that to you. :) Do you remember the darling little dry embossing folder holder I made a while back? That's from Creations By AR also, I think I'm going to remake it in this color palette for a little matched set! Ready to see what my team mates have done with this versatile little box?
