LNS Challenge 216/TSSC256 Monday Lunch Time Sketch

Wow, what a week I have had.  I think each day seems to get busier.  But maybe that just comes with getting older each day.  But I did have a chance to get my samples done and posted for this weeks challenges.  Whatever possessed me to take on two Monday Morning challenges? lol  Again I combined these two, but I also had to make two projects.  Why, because this weeks LNS challenge was to do a 3-d item.  So what I decided to do was to make a box for some cards I had been making to go into a basket for a raffle.  Now how great is that.  So this challenge actually helped me to catch up on some things I was going to have to do anyway.  And, you know the TSSC Monday Lunch Time Sketch is a "Sketch."  So the reason for doing two projects this week.  So without further ado, onto my project!  The first photo is with both of the projects together, the card and the box which will hold quite a few cards.
So you see I will be using this card as one of the cards for the box.  And, the card comes from the sketch that Mary Jo has for us this week on her blog.  Such a clean and simple sketch.  You really need to stop by and see all the great samples the DT Team has designed.  They are really beautiful.
So here is the card by itself and with better lighting I think!
Here is a side view of the card.
Now on to the box where I took the photo from the front!
Now from the side to show the depth of it.
And the back to show the closure of it.
Now how great is that.  I saw a tutorial that Tanya Bell had done for this box and fell in love with it and had to try it out.  You can find her post and video here!  Please check it out, you will love it as it is a one sheet card box and we both used the back card board sheet that comes with the Designer Series Paper.  So you can say this is recycling also.  Yea!!!!  And don't you just love how it closes in the back. Looks kind of like an envelope.
