There She Goes Blog Hop Card Boxes



Today is the start of There She Goes Release Party Week..  We are starting today with
this Card Box Hop.  These awesome boxes are so fun to work with..
Jessica has a fabulous tutorial and template HERE.  She challenged us to
decorate these boxes.  I made mine into a recipe box for my college daughter.. 
I used Jessica's template and this fun dp.  I covered all of the seams with
masking tape (per Jessica's) tutorial and then painted it black.. What a
great idea.  I then painted the inside an off white with acrylic paint. 
Jessica made hers into a card box and she said it will hold 40 or more cards. 
This would make an incredible Christmas gift at a very affordable price.  They are

available at There She Goes.  Now on to Gretchen's blog for more card boxes.
