Pretty Storage

      Where do you put your pretty handmade cards?  Do you just put them in a box or a drawer?  I have a solution for you.  How about making a pretty card box to hold them?  Close to My Heart has 2 different types of boxes that you can decorate for any occasion or theme you would like.

This first card box measures 6 3/8" x 2 1/8" x 4 3/8".  It is made of a heavy-duty chipboard with a magnetic closure.  You can store a few standard size or smaller cards in it.  I decorated this box in the new "Dreamin'" paper pack, honey mini medley accent collection, and "Remarkable Wreath" (c1473) stamp set.

This second card box measures 6 3/8" x 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" and is also made from sturdy chipboard with a magnetic closure.  The box is perfect for photos, recipes, or cards that are 4 x 6.  I decorated this box using the now retired "Sweetheart" paper pack, pink collection ribbon, cream pearl opaques., and "Polka Dot Alphabet" (d1469) stamp set.

Both boxes are great for you or your loved ones.  Which one will you create today?  Let me know if you need help with your box.


  1. Absolutely love your boxes. I especially love that wreath stamp on the Dreamin' box, inside a Cricut Art Philosophy cut "circle" shape. It looks awesome!! Thanks for the inspiration! Think I'm lifting your concept on some card boxes!!
