Earthy Tote

I'm starting to feel like I have my stamping mojo back after this project. I really love it. I made this little note card tote for today's SCS challenge. It was to make a set of 3x3 cards and then a box or something matching to put them in. I had an idea for a tote style box that was held together on the sides with the word window punch strips. It didn't come out quite as I saw it in my head but I like it none the less. The base of the tote is 6 1/2 x 3 1/4 and then scored at 2 3/4 flip and score there again. The edges of the punches are attached with sticky strip and then the ribbon was wrapped around to form the handles.

The cards are super clean and simple to match the earthy theme. I stamped the main image on most of them in celery and then highlighted the edges with the Old Olive marker.


I have to leave you with my favorite photo from my nephews birthday party on Sunday. He's such a ham!
