October Afternoon's "Sidewalks" Card Box

This is little box was a blank chipboard recipe box made by TPC Studio.My friend Cathy from Doodlebugs thought making a card box would be a fun alternative to a recipe box.I had made lots of recipe holders and fun books for recipes so I was all for something new.
I covered the box with October Afternoons Sidewalk line of papers.I just love the colors and patterns on this paper.The big flowers were cut from my favorite piece in the line.Making the embellishments out of the paper is the best! I used 3 pieces of pattern paper and 3 pieces of card stock for box and cards.

This box would make a sweet inexpensive gift.I think it could be done for 13.00 easy and probably less.I am thinking I will be making a few for the holiday's now. It was really nice taking the scraps that where left from the box and making cards.I felt like I was able to use all the paper that way with no waste.

You can find all the materials at doodlebugs in Sequim.This is the link to their blog they have a great blog with some fun ideas.
