Minnie Mouse Box of Cards Set!


Happy Friday all my crafty friends~
I've done another card box, but this time  made some matching cards to go as a set.. My daughter's birthday is coming up next week and she's been a Minnie Mouse fan since she was wee small. I really love this card box style and it's so quick to put together, well if you are going to dress it up then it will take a bit more timing to complete.  LOL!  Their is so much possibilities with this box I mean you really need to at least  try and make one.  It's sturdy and makes such a wonderful gift or even  to make a mass production of it for craft fairs.  For this project it was more  time consuming cutting all my pieces for Minnie Mouse, I had her cut at 3.25 and she is layered so I could have her nice and thick.  Lots of intricate pieces and patience to get her all dressed up and it can become a challenge having steady hands and gluing at the same time.
I used a bunch of different  scrap papers, sentiments, gems, pearls, die cuts , brads, twine and ribbon to have it all mentioned would make this post even longer... If you are interested to know on a particular card just email me and I can reply to what I actually used.
I had my neighbor Wendy over yesterday and she sat with me for couple of hours while I was working on this project and she wants me to make her a bunch for Christmas gifts I told her I can't promise her for this Christmas I'm just too over - whelm with projects I need to catch up. I had all my 2013 calendars  put on hold (looks like I'm going to lose my bet with my hubby) things keep popping up that I can't refuse to not do.... Will have to see how fast I can produce first, hehe!
Well on to my Minnie Mouse card set ~ I'm so thrilled the way it came out.. In real it's just so perfect and I can't wait to see my daughter's reaction when she opens up this gift....
Oops on the pics, I tried to hurry while taking photos this morning, battery light kept flashing (low battery) of all times. LOL!
This set consists of (4) cards (4) envelopes it actually holds (6) of each.


  1. Hi Shirl

  2. I just love 'em Shirl! I'd say Minnie was time consuming. All those cuts...I would've thrown in the towel. LOL. Turned out fabulous though. I really like this idea as a present. I really like the box, too. What do you call this type of you have a tutorial? If you do could you drop me a link? Thanks, hun!

    Be blessed, Beckie
