Collapsing Envelope Box

Wow - it's been a busy day!  I had sooo much fun in my class today teaching.  There were only 2 ladies but did we ever have a laugh!  I love smaller classes - they're so much more intimate and fun and relaxing!  I had taught this class before but I updated my 'winter' samples to 'spring' ones.  Silly me only took a photo of one of the cards and of course I left my samples in the store for them, duh!!  Ah well, you'll have to make do with seeing only one of the four creations!
This is such a fun project and once you've figured out all the folding, it is a little treasure to behold.  Previously I have used double sided scrapbook paper but today I took out some new release stamps from The Stamp Barn and used them.  It's a set of 3 leaf swirl flourishes (very pretty) and I inked them up on lightweight cardstock with pink and green chalk inks.  The flower is a Spellbinders die cut which I adhered to the ribbon with a brad.  I will double check but I believe the tutorial is under Tutorials on my sidebar.  If it isn't, I will upload the instructions.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek today.  Hopefully tomorrow won't be as hectic and I'll get to play catch-up on some of the challenges.  I did make cards this afternoon for The Paper Passion but you'll have to wait another day or two for those!!
Wishing you all a great evening and once again, huge thanks for your beautiful comments!

ps.  It seems I don't have these instructions in my tutorial list so I will plan a step-by-step tutorial of this project to post up next week!  Glad you like it!!
