Valentine's Day Countdown - Day Twelve - Recipe/Photo Box

Wow! Our Valentine's Day Countdown hop is winding down. Hasn't this been fun?

Today's project is an item that will sit on my desk every day. I used the My Creations Recipe/Photo Box that has been sitting on my shelf every since they came out. I guess it was about time for me to actually use it! I made a box that will keep customer information cards. I love the cheerful Sophia papers.

Pleated cardstock - I used two 12" lengths of cardstock cut 1 1/4" wide. The cardstock is scored every 1/2" to make it easier to pleat. You can also mist the cardstock lightly with water to make it easier to work with. I adhered it to the back of the flap and trimmed it at the ends.

The ribbon rose is from some of the new Pink Collection ribbon. The length of ribbon is 12" long, and you can use it all together or cut a rose off like I did. Isn't it beautiful? I used ribbon from the Pear Mini-Medleys to make leaves.

 The inside - I put cardstock on the flap but not on the inside. I figured that once I get it filled with cards, I won't see much of the inside. But you could certainly line yours with paper or cardstock.

Items used (all items CTMH unless noted):
Paper: Sophia Level 2 Paper Packet
Stamps: Our Mission (not available); Polka Dot Alphabet
Ink: Hollyhock; Blush; Pear
Embellishments: Button Collections - Pink and Green; Sophia Level 2 Journaling Spots; Designer Ribbon - Pink; Pear Mini-Medleys; Dimensional Elements Hearts
Other: My Creations Recipe/Photo Box
