DT Project #2 by Minxy

Featuring Teresa Collins 'Save the Date' Collection. 

Hay Snazzy Gang
Here I am as promised with another crafty make... And as you can see, again there is not a hint of wedding to be found.
What can I say, I started off with the plan to make some wedding cards but this idea took over and practically made itself.

I actually started off with the 3 cut out sections from the last project!!
I cut 1 in half lengthways
Left 1 whole and the last I cut 2 side sections with a piece let over.

I assembled, taped and created a box shape.

I covered all the edges with Tim Holtz tissue tape.
Then I cut 4 side panel strips of the 'the detailsSD1002 paper

And 1 long strip for the inside and 2 side panels, I roughed up all the edges and glued in place.

I stamped 3 sides of the box with 2 different clear stamps from the kit and added one of the stickers to the front.

To complete the project I cut out the mini tabs from the 'remember this' SD1009 paper, and added each month with some of the alphabet stickers from the kit.

Hope you've enjoyed todays make, Sorry again that it's not wedding related if thats what you were hoping for.. I have made a couple of cards that i'll be back to share on Saturday.
Till then, Stay Inky

This would make a great recipe box also for a bridal shower. Or just as a gift in general.
