First you are going to start with 2 12x12 sheets of patterned paper. They can be single sided since we are going to fold them. Choose which sheet you want for your bottom and cut that down to 11.5 x 11.5 inches.
Next you are going to fold that in half one way and then fold it in half the other way. You can use a bone folder to sharpen the creases. Open it back up and fold each corner in.
Once you have all 4 corners folded you are going to fold one side to the center and then fold the other side to meet your first fold. Repeat the other way.
Open your last 4 folds to look like this:
Now you are going to pull the top and bottom triangles out and fold the edges upright.
Now, holding the sides in place, pull the top triangle up and tuck inside...you may want to secure it with some double sided tape. Repeat on the other side.
This is what your bottom should look like:
For the top of the box you are going to do the same exact thing. This one will be a little bit bigger than the bottom part. Now you can decorate your box any way you like. I chose to make a bow to match my box. To do this you need to cut 7 1.5 x 12 inch strips. Fold 6 of the strips in half securing with a staple. Once you have all of your strips cut and secured layer them to form your bow. With your last strip fold it to form a circle big enough to fill the center of your bow. You can make smaller bows if you like, just cut the length of your strips smaller. Attach your bow to the top of your box and you are ready to fill it up and send it to that special someone!

This first set of cards are all made from one kit...Momenta has these really cool card kits. Everything you need in spot...plus get this, the box they come in is a decorative box with a magnetic enclosure. How cool is that. When you finish making all the cards you can embellish the box and you have an instant gift for someone. Each kit comes with 4 designs with 3 of each design for a total of 12 cards. I only did one of each of the different designs I am still trying to decide if I want them all the same or if I want 12 entirely different cards...so see, the possibilities are endless with these kits.
This second set is the cards to go with the accordion purse I made recently using the We R Memory Keepers "Retro Galm" line....
Again, wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving...see ya soon!

I made a few different projects for you today just to show how adaptable the Epiphany Craft Shape Studio Tool can be. It was so easy and fun to be able to create my own customizable embellishments to go along with my Momenta products.
For my first project I created a layout. I used letter stickers from Momenta and added them to some Momenta patterned paper slid them into the Epiphany Crafts tool and instant bubble letters!
For my second and third projects I made you a beautiful card and altered frame using the Epiphany Crafts tool to make beautiful flower centers.
Head on over to Epiphany Crafts and leave a comment and then head on over to http://mymomentablog.blogspot.com/ for more details and more chances to win.

So, if you are ready let's get started!
First, you are going to need the following supplies:
CARDSTOCK: One 6"x11" - One 6"x7" - Two 4"x10" - Four 4"x5 3/4" - One 1 1/2' x 11"
PATTERNED PAPER: Two 3 1/2" x 10" - One 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" - One 3 1/2" x 51/2" - One 1" x 11"

Alright, here is your first step...
Now, attatch the strip you just made to the non adhered part of the 5 1/2 x 9 1/2 paper to make the handle and then finish adhering the rest of the paper down:
Apply glue or tape to the left and right outer panels of the folded 4 x 10”card stock...
Adhere one side of the 4 x 10 cardstock to back 4" panel of the main piece and do the same for the front of the main piece. Repeat for the second 4" panel.
You can then decorate the fron any way you like. I will post the coordinating cards tomorrow.
