Surprise Post…

Today’s post happened completely unplanned…While sitting and going over my sketches and deciding on what DSP and color combinations to use, I was simultaneously opening the last piece of chewing gum from a box pack when BOOM! the box caught my attention.  My attention span is super limited!

The box started looking like a business card holder to me…which would probably only occur to me, but hey, look what came from that idea…

Here’s the box unglued…

Does that look like a business card holder to you?   Stay with me here…

Here the box has been glued with multipurpose glue to the new Fresh Floral DSP in Lemon Lime Twist.  Cut around the box with snips.

Glue a piece of coordinating DSP to what was the dark green area of the inside of the box and trim around the box again.  Can you see it yet?

More multipurpose glue was added to the flaps and then folded up the box and just held it in place for a bit.

Add your business cards and maybe a little bling…

All ready!  These would make a sweet gift for your downline that has decided to take their demonstratorship to a business level!  I love this new green but I can totally see this in that Berry Burst too!

If you have any questions or comments, let me know.  There really isn’t a Stuff ‘N Digits for this project, but once that idea jumped in my head…everything else left!

Thanks for stopping by today…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

just another reason why so many cute shoes are necessary.
