Auction Projects

I am donating items to two different fund raising efforts. I really liked the thank you cards I made last week and decided to do those cards for these projects. I used Lauren Meader's template for a desktop box (you can find it here) and I expanded it using a 12x12 sheet so that I could make the sides high enough to hold 8 cards (with layers and ribbon) along with 8 envelopes. Worked like a charm! Lauren's templates are wonderful and if you haven't checked them out over on Papertrey's site, you really should.

Here are the cards:

Here is the inside of the card:

Here is one box:

Here are all the boxes together:

This was a really fun project. I just love the Trendy Trees set and the papers from the SAB catalog are just great. You get 4 sheets of each double sided pattern which is great for projects like this where I wanted to make 24 cards.

Thanks for visiting.

You know how I hate boxes - but this one is the very best I've ever seen! I'd even make one myself - hahahahaha!

Chris, my sons' school is so incredibly lucky to be benefiting from your skills. These boxes are so great -- I will probably end up outbidding everyone for them! Thank you (and thanks from Rocky Mountain School for the Gifted and Creative in Boulder!).
