Picture My Life Note Holder

I have a bunch of cards left over from my Picture My Life kit, and I've been finding fun ways to use them outside of scrapbooking. My favorite? Simply using them as cards! The 4x6 size is perfect for sending as a postcard or leaving a nice note in a loved one's bag. The 3x4 cards work great as gift tags or little notes.

To hold my cards, I was inspired by Jeanette Lynton's blog and decorated a Journaling Card Box using the Balloon Ride paper pack.

I loved using the Artbooking cartridge to create the cute little title on the front and top. And of course, I needed to add some bling - sparkles, baker's twine, Durables Triangle Studs and a Base & Bling Charm

As I always tell people, there are no mistakes in crafting - just opportunities for creativity. I had ripped a portion of the paper on the back of the box, and instead of replacing it, I just cut out one of the balloons and clouds from the paper pack and added this adorable detail!

Such a fun way to store these lovely cards, and what an easy way to show someone how much they mean to you with a sweet little card!

I love this decorated box. Your Kraft titles are so cute with the hand drawn lines and the pop of bling. Really sweet.
