So after getting my nifty new business cards in the mail, I felt compelled (as we all do) to make a crafty storage box/display for them.
I found this awesome tutorial with a free pdf template, http://www.evilmadscientist.com/article.php/washibox
and a-crafting I went!
I made one for me and one for my hubby's office (he's my number one promoter!)
His is a light blue with a blue/white/yellow stripe patterned paper:
Mine is green with a blue/pink/green floral patterned paper:
I followed the directions from the tutorial and they turned out amazingly well. I used a piece of paperboard that a scrapbook store gave me for free to keep my other paper from wrinkling, and you could also use an old paperboard box (cereal, crackers, cake, etc.). I used tissue paper for the background color and two sheets of each patterned paper from a paper stack. I'm sure you could also paint them or decoupage with any other paper or fabric as well.
I used matte Mod-Podge to glue everything together and I also sealed my box with a layer of it for extra durability.
This was a fun project to make! Thanks for looking.
