I love to make people feel good and happy about their accomplishments, big or small, and I can never get enough of the smiles and pride I see on my customers' faces when they look at a finished project.

1) Add Tear & Tape around all the edges of an unfolded Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.

2) Adhere a sheet of World of Good Designer Series Paper to the box using the Tear & Tape.

3) Carefully cut around the box with Paper Snips. Once it's all cut out, fold the box.

4) Cut a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock to 5/8" x 4-1/2". Use a Bone Folder to curve the centre of the strip.

5) Adhere to top of box as a handle using Tear & Tape. Add Antiqued Corners over each end of the handle with Mini Glue Dots.

6) Punch two patterns of Designer Series Paper and one Memories & More card with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Adhere to box front with Stampin' Seal.

7) Die cut globe image from Crumb Cake cardstock with World Map die.

8) Stamp compass rose image onto the die cut several times with Crumb Cake ink. Adhere to box front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Mini Glue Dots

9) Stamp greeting on scrap Whisper White cardstock with Cinnamon Cider ink. Die cut with a square Stitched Shapes die. Adhere to box front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

10) Cut two pieces of Suede Ribbon Trim to 16" long. Adhere one end of each ribbon inside the top box flap with Tear & Tape. Slide an Antique Slide onto each ribbon so it sits on the front of the box. Wrap the ribbon around the box and buckle the end into the slide. Trim ribbon ends to fit. The buckle slides allow the box to be easily opened and closed.

11) Fill box with small cards, tags, or candy. Or fill it with trip photos and memorabilia and use it as decor.
