Anything but a Card at StampFairy!

Happy Monday everyone! It's another challenge at StampFairy and I have to say it was a challenge for me! This week we're looking for projects other than cards - "Anything But A Card" is what we call it. I don't know why, but I panic when it isn't a card - I just don't make that many papercraft projects other than cards I guess. But I managed to create this tote box and I like how it turned out.

I found the template for this tote box at My Time Made Easy.  This is a terrific site that I literally stumbled upon a couple weeks ago. There's a lot offered there including a variety of templates like the one I used in this project which you can find HERE.

The tote box was created in Kraft cardstock and I decorated it with papers from October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" (checked paper) and Basic Grey "Hopscotch" (side papers).


I used Lenny on the box - this is "Lenny Thank You" which was a freebie on Gerda's blog StampFairy World.

And here is a closeup of Clementine on the other side of the box front.  Clementine sits perched on a carrot which I eliminated when I cut her out for this project. You can find Clementine at the StampFairy Shop here.

I hope this project inspires you to create something other than card with StampFairy images.

Be sure to enter your project in the StampFairy Challenge and you could win free StampFairy digis!  And take a look at the other projects the design team created for the challenge this week - there's some terrific projects that I know will inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by!
