Easel Box card


I had to try this project once I got the template, it's easy to put together and decorate,The flowers and butterfly are from a creative expressions stamp set and the sentiment is from Hobby Arts. I filled the little drawer with note paper so it's a card/gift then I decided it would be great in it's own box - disaster, so far I have one lid and two bases and a pile of card cut to all the wrong sizes, the lid's fine and that's it folks, I'm useless at working out the right size to make the boxes if they are outside the normal - see I just don't do numbers very well at all and even tho' I have a board for making boxes (two actually) they are only as good as my numbers, and they obviously are not good, oh well i'll just keep trying - trouble is I could run out of card before I get it right!!

If you are like me and hate to waste stuff, you'll end up with dozens of tiny boxes! The card is great anyway - be thankful for that!!

Oh dear..never mind.... keep trying. You'll get there in the end (hopefully!!!) But the card is lovely and what a great idea to fill the little drawer with notepaper
