My Funny Valentine


My Funny Valentine, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

One of the folded boxes that I made, using the lyrics from the old song, "My Funny Valentine".
These boxes open like a matchbox, with a slide out drawer. I am going to fill this one with valentine candies!

Folded Boxes

These are some folded boxes that I made recently. I have discovered that paper boxes are a great way to feature my lettering, and of course, the possibilities are endless!

ATC Box

I made this box to hold the ATC's I have available for trade...I wanted to be able to take them out and flip through them, like a deck of cards.
