MFT Hop & Shop (and the secret template) LOL

Edited to add:

Hi Ya. Sorry, just a quick note to let you know that I'm down for the count with a bad bad migraine. I'll be back soon. (I'd sure rather be blogging!) xox mel


For those of you on the edge of your seats,
You can find all the Brand Spankin New set here.

...and I have a new thinger that I made to share too!
It's an 3x3 box template set
available at MFT here


(Can you tell I'm excited about this release?) ;o)

I wanted to make a 3x3 box (my fave) with a very well fitting lid... that would have all kinds of accessories, so that it would be flexible for whatever you'd like to create. It's called 3x3 but technically it's 3 1/2 inches square (tailored to fit your 3x3 card creations & envelopes or treats or gifts...)

Here are 4 projects that I made with the box & accessories templates:
(and new MFT sets, of course!) ;O)

MFT 3x3 box template collection sample collage

For me, 3x3 card sets are an ideal gift-y idea, since they are so affordable to
make & people can use the note cards to give away, but keep the box if they like.

This puppy has a gift card holder:



(The panels that come with it are
easy to emboss with folders or plates):



and it comes with liners to decorate the inside & hide all the tabs:



It can make a quick high-backed box:



...and has a box divider.
(If you use the divider in the lid it fits business cards perfectly)


It slices. It dices! And cleans in a snap! LOL

The envelope template (a double one for 2 3x3 envelopes at once)
has liners too (and measures 3 1/4" to allow for all the
good bits we like to add to cards) :o)


(Coming soon to a blog near You!)

All of these projects will all have tutorials available in the coming week.) :O)




And last but never least, I have the honour of linking to...
the sublime Sherrie
who is next in the Blog Hop & Shop!

(You are going to drool, guaranteed!) :o)

Thank You so much for sharing my excitement.

Hope you like the box & have a great Hop!
