Black Sheep?

Yes - I am the ultimate Black Sheep - hope they don't kick me off the team... :(

I love what I created with these new boxes Ladybug Crafts Ink is carrying - LOVE IT - but as I went to upload it, I saw our theme was SNOWFLAKES...um, that's correct, there is not a SINGLE snowflake on my creation. :(

I actually cut my box in half and created a stationery holder - envelopes on one side, cards on the other; or you could do each side with sets of cards and envelopes mixed together - either way would work. I used Lauri's instructions here and increased the overall measurements just a smidge to allow for a pen (held with the ribbon) and the width of the box 1" (so when cut in half, 2 inches together). There are lots of different sizes available in the shop:

4 1/8" x 4 1/16" x 1" - 45p each
5 5/8" x 5 1/2" x 1" - 60p each
4 7/8" x 6 5/8" x 1" - 60p each
6 1/8" x 6 1/16" x 1" - 70p each
4 1/2" x 5 7/8" x 1" -  60p each

Here are lots of pictures to show you my black sheep creation; hope you are still inspired by these fun boxes; the design team members have created some fabulous things - be sure to check them all out HERE!
