February Downline Meeting

We had our Downline Meeting last night at the home of Pam Hegarty. She was a wonderful hostess for us and provided a fabulous Make & Take for everyone. There were 14 in attendance, and the most delicious food items were brought by everyone to share.
I won the door prize last month at our meeting and so that means that for this month I was to provide the door prize. Here is what I made for the door prize drawing.

Card File Box, Journal and Pen

Close-up of the Card File Box

The box measures 9"L x 6-1/4"W x 5"H. (I recycled the box from Home Depot, they use these for displays in the store.) I covered the outside of the box with Bella Rose DSP, covered the inside with Kiwi Kiss CS, then added Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to all the upper edges using Sticky Strip to hold in place. The index cards were cut from Riding Hood Red CS (6-1/8" x 5", embellished with Bella Rose DSP strips (1-1/4" W) using the Scallop Edge Punch along both sides, I used the Rounded Tab Punch for the tabs. I typed the labels for each on the computer, then printed them onto Whisper White CS and cut each to fit, then stapled each one onto the index card. Viola!!! What do you think?

Close-up of the Journal & Pen

I found this journal in my stash of alterable items. To make it match the Card File Box, I added Riding Hood Red CS, Pink Pirouette CS and Bella Rose DSP to create the square embellishment for the front and back of the journal. I used 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches and Scallop Circle Punch for the individual embellishments to each DSP square. I used Sticky Strip to secure onto the journal. I tied some Riding Hood Red & Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to the spiral binding of the journal and also to the clip of the Ink Pen.

Viola!!! And the winner was Pam Hegarty.
She will bring the door prize next month for our meeting.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

Great project, Barbara! Looks like a LOT of work! I'm not so great with covering boxes. Are there tutorials anywhere on how to do it so neatly? TFS! Beth
