well good lord, i've never seen anything that amazingly awesome.

i've stared at it forever, and i still a) barely believe it's a box and b)dont know how in the world you did it...if it is.

i think im in love...
hee hee you made my day! Thank you!! Ill give you guys the secret as soon as I can sit still for a min to write it all out!  Cheesy

I think that's so unique! You did an awesome job and It would look very cool with old envies. I say go to second hand shops and pick up so old ones.
I didn't think of second hand shops, none that I have been to have this sorta thing, but Ill definitely take a closer look next time! Thank you!!

haha thats great!! Cheesy

I'm a super romantic so even if it was just a stack of envelopes Id find the romanticism in it, but the box part makes it ROCK! Thanks doll!

OH bubblies11 you made my day too!  Cheesy
Can you figure it out? Its really simple. Ill post a tut tonight when I get off work.
All I can remember off the top of my head is you'll need envelopes (whatever size you want and however many to make it however deep you want) and foam board. Exacto knife or box cutter (everyone calles it something different) Glue, postage stamps and whatever you want to embellish them (well top and bottom anyway) with, ribbon and a liner for the inside.
I used string instead of the ribbon for this one because it was made before I became obsessed with crafts! LOL

*ugh*
SO amazingly sweet and clever! I have a terribly romantic friend, and to recieve this would make her year!
I too thought it was a box for containing love-letters, but this is so much cooler! I'm flabbergasted! And how often does one get to use that word?  Cheesy

Flabbergasted is one of my favorite words! I'm anxious to get the tut up so YOU GUYS can try this and I cant wait to see everyones individuality!

This is fabulous! I've never known anyone who has made this - looks way better than mine!  I was trying to do the one from Carol Duvall show, but couldn't get it to look anywhere near as good as your  :\ 

 Smiley     I rocked it, too!  Here is a link for instructions: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_crafts_boxes/article/0,,HGTV_3289_1399648,00.html

SWEETNESS! I had a friend pass on instructions to me I had no idea there was a tut on the net already! That will save me time and let everyone else interested get to it! Thanks! The directions Carol Duvall gives are a lil different but the end result is the same! Thanks!!
