Well, I just HAD to try it out, so I decided to make a little box. I chose to make it with Doublemates cardstock from WorldWin Papers, so I could have a darker base and a perfectly coordinated lighter lid by flipping over the cardstock. Plus, I love the texture on the Doublemates. I scored and created the bottom...easy as pie. Then, I scored the lid....after scoring, I decided I wanted to emboss it. So, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with one of my new folders "Bird Call". Love the look of that birdie!! I assembled the lid and voila!!! A box! lol I stamped Dream and the dragonflies on the lid and added Stickles to the bird and the dragonflies. I made a paper bow to wrap around the box lid.
Okay, so I have a box...what the heck do I do with it??
Well, the solution was to pull out my trusty Bind It All and make a tiny journal to put inside. The journal measures 2 1/4"x2 1/4". I embossed a panel for the front and back (the back is just grass, no bird). I embossed an additional bird and mounted it on foam tape. I stamps dragonflies and Inspire. Added glitter to the dragonflies, grass and the bird's eye and beak. Cut 2 sheets of Mohawk Superfine white paper into 2"x2" squares for the pages. Bound it all together with the BIA and this is what I got:
