Graduation Card Box

This is the graduation card box I made for my son Alex. My friend Vicki at made the card that says Alex on the side of the box. Isn't it fabulous? It will go in a memory book after the party but for now, I think its perfect for his card box. (thank you Vicki)
I took 2 USED flat rate boxes and taped them together and its the perfect size. I used the blue painters tape all around the corners, and used 12 x 12 papers to decorate the boxes. I used a few of his photos too. The thing at the top is a piece of mat board folded in half to top the box. There is a slit on top of the box to insert the cards. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

I would like to enter this at :

Tammy - (go here next)

For my project I made a glitter clock for my son and his girlfriends prom photo. I used a plain black and white clock that I found at Walmart for $5.00 , glittered chipboard hearts and arrows, and a little bit of bling around the outside of the clock where the actual numbers are.

I dry embossed the paper to raise it up a bit, then applied blue sparkly glitter glue to each of the raised spots. This project couldn't get more glittered then this. LOL I hope his girlfriend likes it, its a little too sparkly for his taste.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You should be going to next.

Jenny's Birthday rules were that we had to make a project with at least 3 colors and 1 piece of bling. Jenny loves bling! I made a present card, with hot pink, light pink, and white and lots of little pink gems. Now, let me just say, I hate using a lot of bling because I feel like I'm robbing my stash! Usually one or two pieces of bling per project max, but because its Jenny's birthday I went all out with these gems. Inside I stamped with Its a girl thing purses from stampin up. I hope you like my card.Thank you so much for joining us for Jenny's Big 3-OH Birthday Blog Hop!
