Wednesday Treat


Hi Everyone
I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I've been watching Michelle's blog and all here cute boxes she's created and Joy's blog and here cute creations and and .

It's that last link from Joy that really got be to buy the template for this box. I've seen it before and thought I'd just try and create something from scratch when I had some free time but last weekend I was visiting some family and I had a request to create some simple note cards that could be sent. I wanted them to be simple and not require any extra postage so I thought Joy's take with the black and white set would be a great idea. I looked for some great paper to use for my box and I think it turned out great.
I should mention that I purchased the template from Becky over at .

The instructions say to use transparency sheets for the window but I found them way to expensive at the office supply store so I just purchased some sheet protectors and cut them up. It works just fine. I'll include some handmade return address labels and include a book of stamps (hopefully I can find some that match the cards) and a small pen. I can just see my family member grabbing this box and setting at the table and writing some notes. It's great that you can get everything in it. Envelopes, Cards, Labels, Stamps and a pen.

Thanks for your visit today.
Have a great day,
Tammy
