Note box holder!

I'm finally getting all my unfinished projects put together.  You know how it can be when you work on a project and you just don't have the right papers, or it could be you are not to please with it... Well that's me, and then I toss them  in a plastic bin and totally forget about them.... LOL!.  I even found about a dozen of cardstock that I had cut up into A2 sizes in an envelope stash too.  LOL!
Any how here is this box that I had put together for what reason, I can't remember.   I racked my brains and decided to turn it into a note box holder to keep all the different occasional cards in.  I gave my mom a bunch of cards  so she can give to the family and her close friends.   And I think this holder would be perfect to keep her cards in... Right now she has them in a ziploc bag, hehe.. What do you think?  I worked around the colors that she likes, after all mom will be 84 years in December and she is so full of sparks.

Supplies for my project:
papers from K & Company given by RAK
Journaling Spots - CTMH given by RAK
Flower & scallop die - My Creative Time
heart push pin - given by RAK

I really think these would make pretty gifts - hummm will have to see if I can squeeze this into my list for the upcoming holiday's or maybe some craft fairs....

Thanks for stopping by,  you make me smile when I read your comments....
Be happy and crafty - toodles and be back soon!
