Convention Make & Takes – 5 – Card Box

I finally finished my card box!  The flower was a bit difficult, especially since I forgot to watch a helpful video at convention and didn’t take a great picture of the top of the finished box, so my flower probably looks weird but I’m not too concerned… I didn’t have the petal punch so I was waiting for that to come so I could finish!  This card box will be in the holiday mini!  It sort of replaces the Card Keeper box and is about the same size.  Comes together quite easily and comes with templates for covering the box and lid.  We just covered the lid with fabric.  LOVE this fabric!  I want it everywhere in my house 😀

I filled the box with my swap cards from convention 😀  There are about 55 card fronts plus the tabs in there, but more could definitely fit.  Some of the fronts have a lot of dimension too, so that makes a difference for sure.

Convention Make & Takes – 4 – Banner

Convention Make & Takes – 3 – Best Friends Forever

This stamp set was my favorite among those we got for our make and takes for convention. I love the swirls and vines. The BFF sentiment probably won’t get used much, but the other accents are totally me.
