      Probably a good idea to have some cheaper cards - get those people spending!! They look good.

                  Good luck...have you thought about putting say 5 in a handmade box or with a 'wrap' around them, like a pack of notelets, each individual...it wouldn't cost more than a couple of pieces of A4 to make the shallow box? You're a very get on and do it couple, and I take my hat of to you for coming up with new ideas and just getting things done I really do, well done

                    ah thanks nettie thats really kind of you to say that
                    have been toying with the very idea that you mention and wasn't sure where to get the boxes from
                    how would I make the box myself

                      If you lay the biggest card in the middle of your A4 piece of card and lightly draw around it you can make a box any size you like, as long as there's at least 1cm (or however 'deep' you want your box) all the way around to make the sides of your box. The easiest way would be with a box maker which will give you an even embossed line all the way around your card, snip in each corner, fold up and staple or double sided tape to make the sides. A box maker is automatically measured to do the lid a couple of mms bigger than the base. I'm not sure I've explained that very well, but I'm sure there's a tutorial from someone on the forum, but I can't remember who, sorry. Failing that I could post some piccies of me making a simple box tomorrow?

                          I better make sure I've done my hair and put some lippy on tomorrow then and I KNow my fingernails are nibbled too, aaaargh . You can get the boxmaker from the createandcraft website or I got mine off (guess where?) ebay. You can get wooden ones or the purple one I found suited me better, I found the wooden one's ridges were too sharp and ripped through the card, but maybe that's just my own experience. Once you've got it you will be able to make any shape box you want, it comes with a booklet that shows you how to make even hexagonal boxes, triangular ones etc... Actually sunrise this may be good for me too as I've not done any card making for quite a few weeks now

                            I've got that one too, it's great isn't it, I use it all the time. Can't imagine how I managed without it now.

                              I've put the pictures for making a box in 'Your craft projects' - 'How to make a box from A4 card'...There are 19 pictures in all but I couldn't work out how to add instructions between them , but I HOPE the step by step method is clear enough to follow. The purple item is the Crafters Companion card and box maker, one side is for folding different shaped cards and a few wiggly decorations too and the other seems to just have channels on, but they're actually box base and lid score lines. It comes with a leaflet and you can follow their instructions to make all sorts of different shaped boxes. Thought I'd slip in a piccie of my Rotatrim edger which will give you the fancy edges that I've done on the demo. And plEAse excuse my blotchy hands and nibbled down nails...and although you can't see I did do my hair and makeup and put on my favourite top too!!
