Today I am bring back a project from almost a year ago.  I’m going to teach you how to make any size box!
How many times have you made cards or note cards and wanted a coordinating box to store them in? I can show you how to make a box out of paper that coordinates and is beautiful and functional!

This stamp set is in the current catalog and I think it’s a definite winner!  Even though you can make Christmas Cards with it, it’s also perfect for your wine loving friends (and I know I have a lot of those!). But more exciting, this project will teach you how to make DIY boxes for gifts and card at any size!!!

Now, let’s look at these fun square cards.

paper crafts step by step

I colored these cards with my Stampin’ Blends–quick & easy and amazing results.  Since this project was from last year, several of the greetings I used were in a stamp set that is now retired and no longer available.  You could however, add just about any greeting onto these cards. But the main star of the projects is the stamp set called HALF FULL!!!  It’s super fun for all you wine lovers!!! (like me!)
