Stationary Box a la penguins.....

Corie over at Creations by Corie sent me the directions to this fabulous stationary box. She used SU's Simply Scrappin' kits to make hers, but I didn't have any on hand. So I looked through all of my supplies and saw that I had a bunch of papers and embellishments by Imaginisce called "A Shore Thing" .

So I followed her excellent (really excellent with pics too) directions and came up with this box. Whatcha think? Of course I am going to give it to my BFF. Hope she likes it.



Pic of the outside of the box, used Soft Sky cardstock for the base.



Pic of the inside....used Soft Sky and So Saffron as my CS for the cards and tags.



One of the note cards...



One of the 3"x3" cards inside. If you are considering doing this particular project, do it! I was a bit intimidated, but once I got going, it was a breeze. It took my about 2 hours to complete. Enjoy and thanks Corie for the great project!
