Our Tutorial Time Challenge is brought to us by our talented Kathy Bradley
It is a Box Card.  Kathy made this fun and quite easy with her great instructions! I
 first made a feminine one and after making it is was so fun
 I decided to make another one for my grandsons upcoming birthday.
This is so versatile you could use it for a variety of things like
 little gifts for a small luncheon or party etc.

The first one I made feminine with the doilies and flower embellies. Instead of a ribbon pull for the drawer  I used a little washer and bead. All the lavender was embossed before attaching. The roses and Happy Thoughts are from the Sending Happy Thoughts Set and the Hummer and Have aWonderful Birthday  is from the Hum Along Set and Happy day is from Cracked Hello Set. The ribbon just wraps around to tie it closed. My niece has a birthday today so this is perfect for her!
  The second box  for my grandson who is turning 14 next week.The time has flown by, can
 hardly believe it has been that long! He was born
the night before Mothers Day, and what a blessing he was and is to this Ama.
Tiny little peanut when he was born is now as tall as I am..

 So anyways tried to do something a little more masculine, dont think he would
appreciate the roses lol!  This one I turned side ways. After putting the box together
 I added the striped dp. The stars are cut with a MFT dies.
The Truck and HB sentiment comes from the Big Boy Toys Set.

 Using metal for some of the stars which I embossed with the diamond plate folder.
On the inside I used the tire tracs from the same Big Boy Toys Set. The
Celebrate is from the Celebrate Big Set.

The little drawer pulls are screws which I cut down and just
screwed them thru a small hole. Inside is a perfect size for a gift card.
My daughter is getting a gift card for me so he can go do a day of repelling.
I didnt want to use ribbon to tie it shut so I enclosed some string in the package
for my daughter to tie it shut after she puts the gift card in the drawer.

Kathy has really made this very easy with her Great instructions.
Do stop over and give it a try. What a perfect little box to give Moms for
Mothers Day.My teammates also have lots of inspiration for you!!

Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous first card/box. I love the roses and hummer and your coloring is wonderful! And, the second box for your grandson is totally adorable!! You did an amazing job decorating it perfectly for a young man! I know exactly how you feel about your grandson growing up so quickly. My grandson (with whom I used to sit on the floor and play Legos for hours) is driving and will be 17 in October)!
