Okay...I searched through the threads in Paper and Recycled things and didn't find anything on this...so it may be new to Craftster...maybe not, but I couldn't find it.  As far as I know, it may be a RecycleMicol original!!!

Here are the pics:




Here's the Tutorial:

Now I had to make this in Micorsoft Paint!!!  Can you believe???  I had Photoshop but my old computer bit the dust and I haven't purchased another Photoshop program for this new computer!  Sorry!

First, get a greeting card...new or used...but recycling IS the best, isn't it??!!  That way they're free, too!

This says 'Score and Valley Fold a thin margin of the front flap in towards the backside of the front flap, creasing well...but you can't read the dumb writing!!!







If you have any more questions about the terrible pixelated Tutorial, please ask!

You know... I got directed here looking at something someone wished for for a swap - and have been stuck on this board ever since.

Those boxes are too cool!  I am going to have to make these for the holidays!  No... I have a birthday party coming up.. I think I can use them for goody boxes instead of bags - put a few hole punches on the top - run a bit of ribbon through.. and viola carrying handle for the goodies to be sent on home!

Now I know why I hoard all my old cards! Cheesy Fab tute, I can't wait to try this out, you've made it seem so easy.

Thanks...no one has seemed to have recognized the Seinfeld references on the faux card.  (I never did watch the show when it was in it's first-runs.  My husband has always been a fan and watches the re-runs at night...now I remember more of the catch phrases than he does!)

High-five!
