"Contain" Yourself!



Card Display Box





I made this little box to display 5" by 7" Valentine's Day cards that I sell at work.
It's really quite simple to make and takes one sheet of 12" by 12" card stock. I reinforced it with a lightweight cardboard liner. You can find the tutorial here.
I decorated it using Nestibilities daisy dies and Martha Stewart punches.







It holds several cards nicely, and I think it makes an eye-catching display. I had so much fun making it that I'll be making more for other holidays. I think it would also make a pretty gift presentation, too.

This is gorgeous. Love how you decorated the box with those pretty flowers and butterfly. Now I will need to get those daisy dies. Also love the border punch. The card is so cute too. Love Mo's digis.
