Here's my creation for this month's hop:

A BOX CARD

They seemed to be all over the internet this past month
and I just had to try one.

Vans are from the Silhoutte store

It even folds flat and fits in an envelope!

Now my box card is very simple, but if you like the concept you should search for "box card" and you will find some that are really beautiful.  If you have a Silhouette cutter they now have these templates in their store, but at the time I made mine they didn't so I did all my cutting by hand following the instructions from Split Coast Stampers: http://youtu.be/iaKsxdaVwv8.  There are all kinds of videos, some with easier measurements, so shop around and find the one you are comfortable with!

**** UPDATE***  I was actually able to grab a few minutes and use the Silhouette template to make this card below.  It is SOO simple to make these with the template, no measuring  LOVE IT!

UPDATE!!!  I was able to whip up a box card from
the Silhouette store file!

This is a Lori Whitlock file 
Sorry for the messy last minute photos, but I was actually scrambling to get this one finished right before the hop. Once I went to close it I noticed the inserts were not perfectly lined up so they bowed a little, I'll be fixing that before I send this one off, but I wanted to show you the Silhouette file!
