Change of Address Kit

Welcome to the weekend, everyone! It has been terribly cold here and now....we're getting more snow. I started working on this a couple of days ago, and finished it up last night. I only worked at night while the kids were in bed, so it took a little longer to make.

My husband's friend decided to transfer to another Ford plant out of state, so I made these Change of Address cards for him. Trying to keep them masculine was a bit of a challenge, and I hope they'll work for him.

The Origami box is the one that I'm sure many of you have seen all over Splitcoaststampers and various blogs, because it was the TLC203 several days ago. I used my Ski Slope DSP (SU), and Welcome Home Little Bits set from Lizzie Anne Designs. I made up ten cards, and the 4x4 envelopes are from CTMH. I've included different views of the project and cards for you to check out.









I am behind in my blog reading again, but I hope to see what you're all up to very soon! Thanks for stopping by today!

What a wonderful, thoughtful gift. I made two attempts at making this box, used two sheets of my most favorite designer paper and ended up tossing both after getting very frustrated. I could not get the size to work out right - both times too big.
