Blogger's Challenge #43

This was CASE'd from Julie Buhler's blog, Paper Pleasing Ideas. It's such a cute idea! It's a little Card Attache Case. She says it will hold 5-10 depending on how thick the cards are with embellishments. If you visit her blog, the tutorial was posted on April 13th. And if you go to the post on April 10th, you'll see a really cute little Business Card Attache Case to match! So cute!
I haven't made the matching cards to go in my case yet, so that will be a future post! The challenge was to use chipboard - how fun! I used the shapes from my On Board Blossoms and Basics kit. I used my TOMBO mono liquid glue to attach the Soft Sky cardstock to the shapes.
I used a swirly clip attached to the middle of the flower and threaded the ribbon through to tie it shut. I bent it a little in the middle so it kind up stuck up a little. That made putting the ribbon through a lot easier.

This is the case open. OOPS! Maybe I should've covered the back of the shapes too!

Recipe:

Stamps: Pick a Petal

Paper: Bayou Blue, Soft Sky

Inks: Bayou Blue

Other: Jumbo Eyelets, On Board Blossoms & Basics, Bayou Blue Double Stitched Ribbon
