Christmas in July...

Hi there...I have a creation that I'd like to share with you today.  
Today's project is for the Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge, which is, Christmas in July!
Christmas Card

Gift set of card and box of notes

Box of notes with transparent lid to the side.

Last week, Beate Johns, had a tutorial and video at Splitcoaststampers, showing how to make this delightful box full of beautiful note cards.  You can find Beate's tutorial and video here.  (To see another version of this great little box, check out my talented friend, Lorie's blog!)  I chose to make a gift set, of a Christmas Card, and this Note Holder Box.  I hope you like it!  I'm keeping this post as short as possible today, but let me know if you have any questions!  I will post supplies used at the bottom.


NOW....
Welcome to Flourishes’ Christmas in July sale! 

Each year around this time, Flourishes kicks off a festive sale that is sure to warm your hearts and get you in the spirit, long before the snow starts to fly!
