Maggie & Friend Teepee Card

The challenge over at Magnolia Card & Kit Swaps was to make a teepee card to share with a teammate. My teammate is Frances from Florida. I wanted to make her something that I thought any Florida-lover could enjoy and what better than an ocean theme? When I think Florida I think blue water and sandy beaches! I hope she enjoys the card and homemade box.

This box was so easy! It took all of 10 minutes including the stamping and diecuts. All you need do is measure the outer edges of your card, add width dimension x 2 + approx. 1/4" to length and width and score on those lines on all 4 sides. clip on the inner aspect of where the lines intersect on the two shortest sides. Folds on scoring and assemble 2 sides of the box, glue in place. Voila! Your done and ready to decorate.

Here are some additional challenges I'm pleased to enter my card:
1) Week #113 Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar - Anything Goes w/optional Shabby Chic(closes July 7th)
2) Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge - Thinking of You Summer Flowers (ends July 16th)
3) All That Scraps - #11 Anything Goes (ending July 13th)
4) Creative Inspiration - Summer Vacation (ends July 9)
