For Maria

the front
the back (color's off in this pic)

For those of you that read my blog often, you might have read my posts on my first ever sewing project. My awesome friend Maria let me borrow her sewing machine so that I could take my time and complete my project on my own.

Maria's favorite word is "Believe", so as a thank you to her I made her this "I Believe" quote box. I discovered this on Rachel's blog here. Rachel always has great ideas and takes most of the guess work out for you. Thanks Rachel! .....so anyways, back to Maria....I wanted to make this for Maria's birthday in October, but since it was sooo far away and I really wanted to make this box I decided to make it for a thank you gift. There's quotes/sentiments on both sides of each card with a special hand-written "I Believe" from me. I really hope she loves it. If you notice...I'm still addicted to the "Unforgettable"pp. Can't help it!

Hope you enjoy and try one for yourself!

Materials: All CTMH. Unforgettable L2pp, Unforgettable MyStickease, cocoa ink, cocoa marker, sorbet and chocolate ribbon rounds, cocoa grosgrain ribbon, designer brads, Fancy Cuts botanicals, sanding kit, sponge.
Other: Labels 1 Nestie, printer paper.
