I designed this box for our January Stamp Share for Leader Meeting Make & Take.  My inspiration was from Crafty Caroline’s You Tube Video (click here to view Caroline’s video)

With a couple modifications I made a box using the Tulip Builder Punch and the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper (details below).

  1. Terri, can another dimensional be added in the slot mechanism so as to adhere 2 of them to the back of the heart to make it more stable vertically? I’m anxious to make this card box and set of cards to give as gifts for friends.
