Snail
Sticky strip
Trimmer

Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of card stock 6″ x 3″ and score at 1 1/2″ and 3″ with the 6″ side at the top. Fold score lines so the 3″ piece is at the bottom and the other two are folded towards you.
2. Cut a piece of card stock 3″ x 3″ and then put sticky strip on the first section of the other 6″ x 3″ card stock. Adhere the 3″ piece to it so only the bottom is stuck together. This is your easel card. You can decorate the way you wish. Then add a button or brad to the bottom so the card sits up.
,3. Now for the bottom cut card stock for sleeve 8″ x 3″ and score the long way at 1″, 4″, 5″, & 8″. Fold all score lines and adhere together with sticky strip, the 1/2″ strip to the other side. Cut 4 pieces of DSP 2 3/4″ x 3/4″ and adhere two of them to the small sides of the wrap.

Put your drawer in the box and you are done. This is great to give money in, gift card or little gift in.

Cold weather

Well not sure we’re you live but here in MA it is very cold. We hope you are all staying warm. Well anyway this cold weather is a good time to get into your craft room and clean it out. Try putting like items together, recycling boxes and containers to hold your supplies. Sometimes if I can not find a box I want for it I make my own. It’s lots of fun and can be a challenge figuring out the measurements.
Happy organizing!
Brenda
