Hi Friends! Hey, I found the time to create a tutorial. Gosh, I haven't made one for so long, I've forgotten how long it takes to make one. I have less time nowadays to devote time to creating tutorials but I do miss it sometimes. If you haven't been reading my blog for a while, I'm making great efforts to becoming fit and healthier. I've been exercising (walking, aerobic workouts) for at least 3 to 4 times a week. I'll probably be starting on resistance training tomorrow. I am also eating healthier as well. I've been keeping a food journal, keeping track of my workouts, drinking 8 glasses of water. . .it's a major change for me so it's been hard to concentrate on crafting because my focus and my energy have been towards my fitness journey. I really want to make a change that'll be permanent. I hope this time around, I'll be able to accomplish this goal.
Anyway. . .this project is a 4 1/4 x 3 1/2" box/purse. It's a simple project to create. The depth of the box is approximately 1 1/4" so you can fit a lot of goodies in the box. Scroll down below for the tutorial.
I decided to create a simple design for the box. . . .no, not because I was lazy. LOL! Sometimes I think I add too many layers to my cards and embellishments to my box projects and sometimes simple is nice.
I also made a matching card for this box.
Here is the card I made for the box. . .like I said. . .it's simple. All I did was use a sentiment stamp and added a prima flower witha decorative button to the center. This is actually a Christmas card. . .I think it can pass for a Christmas card, huh?
Anyway, check out the tutorial below.

Just to let you know, the tutorial was uploaded through Scribd.com and if you want to download or print the tutorial, you will need to register with Scribd. Scribd is just a site that allows you to upload Word and pdf. documents which you can't do directly on Blogger so I have to use another source to upload the tutorials rather than posting it directly on Blogger. You can find other crafters who post templates and tutorials on Scribd as well so it's a good idea to register. There's no obligation. It's a free site.
