SPRING PAPER April 2010 Blog Hop

HELLO and WARMEST WELCOME TO MY BLOG!!!!

This is my first time to participate in a blog hop! 

I am really excited to be able to share my ideas with a larger audience, so if you like what you see then sign up to follow my blog and don't be afraid to leave a comment and FEEL FREE to share my blog with your friends.

I hope you see something here that makes you happy or inspires you to whip out your paper and make something.  Thats how I felt when I found instructions for the project below. . .I COULD NOT WAIT TO TRY IT and I thought that Close To My Heart's "Topstitch" paper packet would be PERFECT!!!

So . . . . . here it is!!!  I hope you enjoy it.   
Its called a
 And what makes it a "stairstep" box you may ask?  Well.. . . remove the lid and you will find out!
Do you want a closer look?  You can click on the pictures to see a larger photo with more detail.
THINK OF ALL THE FUN THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH THIS!!!!
I think it would be an EXCELLENT gift!   Fill the boxes full of small, handmade embellishments to give to a papercrafting friend. . . or you could put costume jewelry in the boxes for a young girl who LOVES to play dressup. . . maybe use a more masculine print and fill the boxes full of candy. . . hmmmmmmm, I have a husband who LOVES vanilla tootsie rolls. . . maybe I'll make him one for Father's day.
Do you want to make one?  I found instructions HERE.
HAVE FUN - - I really would LOVE to hear about your project. 
Would you like to see more ideas?Then HOP OVER TO Lori Brown's blog to see her project.

THANKS FOR VISITING and HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

  6. Mmmmmmmmmm.....Vanilla Tootsie Rolls....

    So when Traci made this project I was working on something and I stopped to see what the finished project was and I couldn't believe it! As Traci opened the box I kept saying "Wow!" I was so impressed! Our girls love these boxes as well.

    You really are very talented Traci!
