Little boxes...

I found this great little box template on the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator site. You’re supposed to increase the size but I thought I’d made a little one. I printed it out and stuck it to my cardstock with temporary adhesive and used a craft knife to cut it out.  I’m not brilliant at cutting with a craft knire - or folding -  so it’s a bit ropey round the back… I didn’t need to mention that, did I? Oops.

Ooh, and do you like my new watermark? I made that all by myself! It took me AGES so positive feedback only please!

    You've done a great job on yours, Helen. What will fit inside (goodies wise)?
    A lovely watermark, BTW!
