Petite Pocket Die Box AND Fabric On Sale!!

Here is a cute little box I made a couple of weeks ago using the Petite Pocket Die.  I think this die is my favorite to make little boxes and envelopes to go on cards.

Box open

box closed
I used Pool Party card stock and stamped a background all over the paper after die cutting it.  I put the box together using Sticky Strip (red line tape).  I distressed a small piece of Core'd'nations brown card stock to make a belly band.  Then I tore the edges of a small piece of Newsprint DSP to go around the belly band.   Next I tied some Bakers Twine around the belly band with a couple of Tiny Tags hanging off.  The finishing touch was to stamp a ticket from That's the Ticket to adhere to the front and added a punched flower.  Pretty shappy chic, don't you think?

I'm trying to get packed for my upcoming trip to Texas.  We were hoping for 80 degree days while we were there but it's looking like it's only going to be in the mid to high 70s for next week.  Anything is better than the cold weather we are having here!  Snow was even sighted this morning in Mooresville!!  Crazy!  I don't mind the cold weather but enough is enough!  I'm ready for spring!!

I have to brag on my wonderful daughter!  She called me a week ago and asked me if I'd like to go on a trip with her .... to Australia and New Zealand!!  Would I???  Is the Pope Catholic???  When and where?  Let me pack my bags!  Ashley and her friend, Courtney decided to take their mothers on this trip and make it a mother-daughter trip.  I can't wait!  We'll probably be going at the end of the year.  What a wonderful child I have.
