  1. Cindi, I love your box card creations! Thank you so much for taking the guess work out of the construction of the card by providing the measurements. I like your idea of of the shorter flaps as well as cutting your theme paper a bit shorter. Both of these tips give your design such a polished look.
    As always Cindi, I want to thank you for your willingness to go the extra mile and working so much harder for all of your loyal followers so that we have the chance to craft a bit smarter. Without your tips and amazingly accurate measurements, I am sure that I would have been reduced to a crafter hunched over her project with a ruler in one hand, a tangle of tape in the other and tears of frustration flowing down. Now I have the confidence to go ahead and make such a great card that I am sure will impress my friends and family.

  2. Adorable! But they look difficult to make? Thanks for creating the tutorial-I'll have to give the box card a try:)

  3. Kathy...I am always so encouraged by your messages! I totally love sharing and teaching and friends like you make it so worthwhile! And guess what? I just made 5 more of them yesterday to send out for birthdays and a get well message!!

  4. Smokeysmom, the first one was a little difficult, but once I got one made, it got so much easier! And yesterday, I made 5 of them assembly line style and didn't even need the measurements or instructions! Give it a shot, you will be surprised how cool they look and how easy they really are!

  5. I always thought those looked too difficult too. do they fold flat to mail? where did you get the directions for them - Splitcoast Stampers or You Tube?


We love yours here.
