Notecards Box with Divider (altered treat box)


I saw this cute Treat Box tutorial and thought I'd give it a try. No, this isn't a sample of that treat box -- sorry. But it is the first time I've tried a challenge and it was lotsa fun! Loved the treat box!

Here's what I did differently. I decided to use double-side paper instead and then was inspired to alter it and turn it into a notecards box with an inside divider for my desk. Tell me what you think.

To make the divider, I simply and obviously didn't thread ribbon thru it like the treat box tutorial called for. I brought all folds together to form the box. I then brought two of the pointed triangular folds to the center and adhered them together with double-sided tape. Then you adhere the remainder of the sides together to complete the box. That's it!

You can use this not only for notecards, but you could put receipes, tall candy bars, napkins and plastic ware, etc. You get the picture. The divider makes it a more versatile box to use.

I used Tag Tidbits (which is one of the best stamp sets to use for "teeny" sayings) for the "Just a Note", Amelia hardware , Salsa Flowers and I put to use some discounted double-sided paper.


Thanks for dropping by - God bless YOU!
