I love this paper collection. I used a technique I use in my heirloom sewing called Sharks Teeth in these projects. This technique creates points with a nice folded edge to give it a beautiful finished look on its edges. Its easy and can be made any size for any project. I use it on layouts as well. The box was one I had around the house that I intended for a gift box. I made it to go with this group after I made this birthday card and box as a gift for a friend. The birthday card is created from a card I received in a swap at one of the conventions but have changed a great deal. It is a stand up card with a pull out message area on the back of the card.
