this one is for Mary...she likes green...so I made her one with designer paper that had green in it and topped it off with the hello kitty with bow to match...I also used the top note bigz die for the cover of the box...
so because they purchased gift cards for Taelyn's fundraiser...I thought what a better gift to give than to add two gift card holders inside their hello kitty box! I made one christmas and one happy birthday one...something that they can use...and another way to say THANK YOU!
here is what the inside looks like...just insert the card and voila!

What JOY means...
You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.
Find out what your name means...
What's your name's hidden meaning?
I found a tutorial on split coast stampers and it was titled "easy box tutorial" found here and let me tell you it was! It took a 8 1/2" x 11" paper...that's it! I found that it's easier to make the box with designer paper than cardstock because you can fold the creases easier and you eliminate one step of putting designer paper on the front and back of the box...it's already covered and decorated! So I made this for the winner of the "blog candy giveaway"!!! all the goodies are tucked away inside and ready to be shipped! I can't wait to announce the winner!

Look at my RAK from Teri...I can't believe it! I got the card for Jen's LCWC #9 challenge! I am so lucky and blessed. The girl is so cute...so is that little piggy!
