Daily Special - Anything But Cards - Pocketbook Box

Good Morning Everyone! Today's Daily Special is "Anything But Cards". This non-card project is a Pocketbook Box in the case you're wondering. . .

I bought a pattern template at Target the other day. Target sells a bunch of templates by Paper Bouquet. They must be some obscure company because when I looked them up online, I couldn't find them. The package came with two templates 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". The templates cost $3.99. . .not bad.

The box in the back is one I created for my Card Inspired Blog Site because I used scrapbook pieces instead of stamped images to decorate the box. Check it out.

Just a bit of detail on the materials I used. The images were from three different stamp sets: Polka Dot & Petals, Office Accoutrement, and Designer Label Punch Box. The designer paper is by K&Company, which by the way makes BEAUTIFUL designer paper.

The cardstock used were Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow, and I believe Pixie Pink. . .sometimes, I'm not sure because I sometimes don't keep track of the cardstock colors.

The ink used is Baroque Burgundy (which is retired).

The frilly thingy is something I bought from Walmart a long, long time ago. I think those are used to decorate lamp shades, pillows, and such. I don't know who makes those beaded pearls. Just stuff I buy that I think may be useful to use on my cards. If it's pretty, I'll buy it. The brads are from JoAnn essentials.

Anyway, this was fun to create. I haven't made any non-card projects for a while and making this box was a breath of fresh air.

Hope y'all have a great day!!!

Until later. . .
