On the picture you might not be able to see it well, but the flap on the evelope has been cut off of half, so that side has a pocket for money or a gift card!
I really love this card because it is so different from a regular card and there are so many things you can do with it! If you make some, share pictures with me!

I had to let you all know that I am officially an "Angel" as of today! Yeah! And I haven't posted anything in a long time (and I have heard about it many times!!) so I thought today would be a good day! So I am going to post a couple of new things that I have made recently!
This is an adorable box that could be used for so many things! Small gifts, candy boxes, even place cards for table settings w/ little gifts inside!
And these are just several random cards I have made here and there!

As, you can see this is also a different fold. There should be another one of this type of card that I posted before. I layered it with green cardstock on the inside and then attached a piece of white card so she can write inside!
I used a flower punch and made a little flower out of brown paper just for a little something on the inside. I also covered the back of the card that I attached on the inside, because I did stitch the front cards together with my sewing machine. I think it looks better to cover all that loose stitching and the back of the snaps too!

From that challenge, I made another one using only 3 of the colors. I embossed the image and used a distresser for the edges of the cardstock!
Thanks for looking!!

This is the cover...you can see the holes punched along the side. I used beach balls and pales for the tabs on the little cards that slide out of the open ends of the paper bags.
I used cardstock to mount pictures on some pages but also used stamps and stickles on other pages just for little touches here and there!
I also used my wavy edged scissors for decorations and lots of ribbon! I love using staples to attach ribbon! And of course tying bows! I learned how to tie flat ribbon and knots so they look really cute!
This is a cute page of Rylee's and Sadye's pruny hands!
These are the tabs that you can pull out. I made this book for my friend Aubrey and her girls, Sadye and Lydia! I used the girls picture for the first slide outs!
On the back of the book I used my "handmade by laurie" stamp like Jennifer did but I deleted the picture from the blog and didn't want to go back and get it again! :)
These are so much fun to make and doing this little project has given me many more ideas for more! Thanks, Jennifer, for the ideas!

I will give a list of things that I have found and are easy to find and pretty inexpensive.
These are some cannisters that I used at my old house. I was about to put them in our garage sale when I realized I could store my foam alphabet stamps inside. Mom gave me an old cookie jar with a red lid and that has a bunch of ribbon scraps inside. ( Red is my favorite color and goes all thru my scrapbook room!)
This is my sewing table. I found this sewing maching at Target on clearance! Its's a singer! I love it! I use it on cards and scrapbook pages quite a bit! Below the table is just one of those rubbermaid drawers from Walmart. I use the top drawer for scrap paper. I keep every bit of paper I might use again! I am sure that saves money when I make a card totally from scraps!
