It's time for a new challenge, babies! Just Us Girls has a FUN and super useful,
all-purpose template for us to play with! Let me just say this about that

.... POSSIBILITIES.... the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Did I say the possibilities are endless? They are .... EGGCELENT!

For your ..... p l e a s u r e....
We are playing with a SUPER cool, super EASY, super useful 3D template
to make a gift box, card folio, YOU NAME IT!
It was SO easy - "I" did it! {Seriously!}

Check out this fabulous tutorial!

I had a ball with this fun and easily constructed box...

Customizing this great design and adding my own touches was FUN, fun, fun!

I extended the top flap with my designer paper and scallop edge, just because I liked the idea of the opening being completely covered... Here's a shot of the inside of the opening flap...

I added one of my WONDERFUL Basic Grey magnets to create a "snap" tight closure....

{I LOVE these things...!}

What do you think is inside....?

Woopsie! Sorry, not tellin'! I'm saving THAT for ANOTHER day! Yipeeee!

check out what my lovely and talented sisters -o- the craft,
my fellow JUG-HEADS have done...

And, also, the lovely guest designer for February, Lori!

Speaking of FEBRUARY.... What HAPPENED to the month? Sheesh!
I know it's short and all, but SERIOUSLY - where'd it go?

Well, regardless of the swiftly passing days, I say GRAB YOUR SCISSORS, some stamps
glue, ribbon, and your mojo... and MAKE the day count! Join Just Us Girls for some super
FABULOUS crafty fun! I can't WAIT to see what YOU make! Yeee HAW!

I just LOVE the brick wall look on this, and it's great how you extended the front to make it look so much better! I really like how you managed to place the words "chick here" so perfectly on the main image! You're one clever and very crafty designer and I love this card you've created! TFS the tutorial too!
