I made this card box to use as a Christmas gift and filled it with some cards of various occasions. It is a metal box (maybe called a recipe box?) and I covered it with the Succulent Garden designer series paper from the Occasions catalog.
I have used these boxes a few times over the years and at one point made a template for cutting out the handle holes on the top of the box - that sure makes putting the designer series paper on a lot faster!
I added some Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon and some Old Olive cotton ribbon around the box, added some designer buttons to cover up where the ribbon ended and then did a little decorating on the front with the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.
