Springy Card Box Set by Jackie Pedro

Hi there! It's Jackie here with a fun project to show you today! I know it's a few days before Christmas, but it's been so dreary around here the last few days that I was really yearning to make something springy!! I LOVE the new December Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions and thought they would make a great springboard for my project! Get it? SPRINGboard..................... I'll be here all week......LOL!

Anywho...let's get on to my project...

I used this tutorial by our own Laurie Schmidlin to make this adorable 3x3 card box with the coordinating 3x3 cards! It was so easy! All of the cardstock, designer papers, ribbon and candy dots are from the December Key Ingredients Kit. I used the newest Taylored Expressions Giving Tree Charitable Sets, Discover Your Wings. I ADORE this set and for every set sold, Taylored Expressions is donating 7.00 to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, a beautiful charity to help grieving parents.

Here's the box top in all it's glory! The "thank you" sentiment is from another TE set, Branching Out. The circles were cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities. I used a paper piercer to make the butterfly trail.

One last look at the box. I made four cards to go in the box, but it could have EASILY fit at least six. I hope I inspired you to get crafty!
