My First Attempt

My Mother-in-law bought me a package of items she saw on QVC or HSN.  She loves watching the stuff on there. I went over to visit her last week, took lunch, and she had recorded a show that I had missed on Scrapbooking.  As we were watching it, I saw the cd and paper, etc...  and said ohhh... hold that... pause it!!! I want to get the order number and would like to order it.  I went to grab my cell phone and turned around and she was holding the envelope.  She made me cry because the item was actually sold out, we even checked, and I wouldn't have been able to get it.  She is so amazing!!!

So I saw something on the program and wanted to re-make it.  This is my very first attempt at making this card-box.  

Here it is on the outside with a "belly" band.  This band slips off.

This is what it looks like without the band;

And opened up;

Another peek inside;

I know it's not the best, but I'm so proud that I "didn't screw it up".  HAHAHAH!!!  It's really awesome. They had great ideas on the cd, and it's made with (1) 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I do recommend using patterned paper, not card stock, because the card stock is thick for all of the folds.  

Thank you Mother-In-Law... aka MOM!!!!
