Petal Promenade Card and Box Video

Hello, Crafters.

Today I posted my video which shows how I made the Petal 
Promenade cards and box I shared him last week. 
When I made the first box, I had the tabs on the lid, which was wrong, 
and I found closing the box an effort because the tabs kept 
catching on the envelopes inside! 

It was a fabulous surprise when I realised the box I made in the
 video had the tabs on the actual box where they should be.
 I now know how to make sure the tabs are on the box rather
 than the lid - an important lesson learned! 
The box and cards I shared last week were made with Sahara 
Sand and Fresh Fig Cardstock, and for the video I used Smokey
 Slate and Blushing Bride. 
Normally our 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP) gives us
 two sheets of each design and Petal Promenade is no exception! 
As I used six 3" x 3" squares on each set, I could only
 make two sets of cards plus box!
 On the first box and cards, I used the long strip of flowers
that ran the length of the DSP, to decorate the inside of 
the cards; altogether I used one and a half strips! 
 To find something similar I could use for the second batch, I looked 
at one of the oblong designs on the DSP, and it worked brilliantly! 
In fact, I preferred these flower borders as they were a lot slimmer 
and better suited to the size of the cards. I think that's about it
 from me today. I hope you decide to give this project a 
try - it makes a super little gift for someone!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
