I made one box following the instructions on the Heather Bailey site and then couldn't stop at one. Everything has been potential material for a box.  this isn't all of them. yeah, I did use one for a gift card but I've found they are the perfect size for wallet sized pictures.  So I've been printing out pictures and filling up boxes.  Nice way to end my guilt over all the pictures I haven't scrapbooked. These are the undecorated ones.  I can't stop myself.  My kids keep asking what are you going to do with all those? these were made from magazine covers, scrap paper and cards.   I can't stop myself.  did I say that already?

I'm glad you're inspired! For next Christmas I'm going to use the cards my friends sent me and then put wallet sized pictures of us doing stuff in boxes made from their cards. For my daughter who's moving away I'm going to print out her favorite recipes that I make so she has them for herself.

They're so perfect for little gifts aren't they?

These are so cool.  I made a few today just for fun and they turned out great.  The little boxes would be great for Valentines with a tiny gift inside.  And the materials are free...except for a little glue.   Great idea.  I'm going to try to design a slightly larger one.
