More Fun Blocks

I am soooo excited! Regina has designed more blocks and accessories for Cutting Cafe called The Block-Template and Cutting File! If I had time, I could do another whole week of these. I chose to create my project using the tall block option. I suggested this to Regina and am so excited that she created this size. I have so many fun ideas, but time is short right now as we prepare for a wedding. Ü

I picked some pretty papers by Kaiser Craft (front and back) & My Mind's Eye (sides). Then I just got out my "Michelle" box and started decorating it with goodies from my box.

side note: My friend Michelle Pearson and I used to do a lot of swapping and one time she sent goodies in this strong little box that is just perfect for storing little embellishments. It is filled with a few goodies that I still have that she sent (the white vintage buttons I used) as well as my crocheted flowers (need to get to making more of those), as well as left over embellishments from previous projects (paper flowers, stick pin, tickets, brad, & paper doily).

To make the top and bottom a bit stronger, I cut a piece of scrap cardstock to fit that area and layered it to the inside before putting the box together. The rest I just cut pieces to fit the sides and adhered with Xtreme adhesive. All the embellishments were layered with Xtreme and/or Power Tabs.

Be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow and leave a comment for a chance to win 3 files of your choice.
