Lets make a Cutie Pie Box or Purse!

Hello, my lovely and crafty friends!
I made a really cute little box
that I want to share with all of you!
Or if you like, it can be a purse!
It's really roomy inside!
It measures 4 1/2" x 4" and it's 3/4" wide
Here is a picture showing it holding 
six lip balms!

To make the box I started with a piece of 
pink cardstock  that measures
6" x 10 3/4"
I scored it at 
1 1/4" - 2" - 6" - 6 3/4"
from the top to the bottom
Then I turned it 
and scored it at
3/4" - 5 1/4" 
from the top to the bottom
Then I cut out the first two squares
on both the left and the right side.
I cut slits up the sides of both middle squares
as you can see in the picture above.
Fold on all of the creases and use sticky tape to 
make your box.
Then the fun part is decorating it!
I used 
Cutie Pie in Clouds rubber stamp!
She is going to be on sale for a 
steal of a price 
as Fresh Brewed Designs
Brew of the month
February 6th!
She will only be on sale at this very low
price for the one day on 
February 6th, 
so mark your calendars!
Isn't she adorable?
I know so many little girls 
who would love this little 
purse that I made with
Cutie Pie in clouds!
You can add a pocket on the back for a 
gift card or sentiment tag too!

  13. Hi! Sheryl, thank you so much for your comment...I was exhausted after reading it....TEN KIDS...Oh!No!...I draw the line at 4 after work [after cleaning and caregiving all day] least my g/kids can basically take care of themselves now...I have been doing this since they were all born...but I'm older now...and maybe a bit wiser,I look after them at their house, cook the meal,eat for free, for them and Mum and Dad, then I go home to a tidy house...dozy cockroaches or had a bark garden and removed it all and made a normal garden..they must have been hiding and come in...but I spray my own house, so they are doomed...

    Gorgeous box, love the tutorial, very clear and precise...beautiful colours, and love the sweet image and pretty, make a great gift for girls for Christmas.

    Luv CHRISSYxx
