I was racking my brains to think up a different type of card
for my hubby's birthday next week,
when I saw the challenge over at Secret Crafters.
and here's what I came up with.
It's a little briefcase, and the card itself is in the
front pocket, and is in the shape of a gift tag.
I'm sure my hubby will agree with the sentiment on it!!
To make the little briefcase,
I loosely followed a wonderful tutorial from Mel
(Thankyou so much, Mel, for your excellent instructions)
I made my box a little bigger by starting with 12 x 8 card,
so that it was more of a briefcase shape.
Then I added a little pocket at the front, using brads to hold it in place,
and finished it off with a handle on the top.
The little tag uses a stamp from the
Papermania - Stamping For Him set
(coloured with whispers pens)
and I made the sentiment on my computer.
The finished briefcase is approx 6" x 4 1/2" x 1",
so hopefully I will be able to fit
some of hubby's favourite dark chocolate in there.
