Pretty Card Box

I needed a box for some cards so I used the Strength & Hope sample in the Summer Mini for inspiration.  The box itself is fairly basic but I did something different on the band to hold it shut – that’s what I want to show you today! 

The Cherry Cobbler piece on the top of the box is adhered straight to the box.  The band in the ribbon and the Top Note die. Because I used Hodgepodge Hardware and an antique brad, I wanted the back to be covered.  Here’s what I did – 

Then I used Tombow Multipurpose glue to put the stamped Top Note over the ribbon/Top Note band.  Now it just slides off and is still pretty on the back – and doesn’t tear up the box either.  

Just an idea for you to try!  Enjoy – Hugs, Fran
