A Week Full of Graphic 45 Box Staples!


This week, we are featuring our Graphic 45 Boxes - and you will definitely notice our love for the ATC Book Box in the blogs to come. They are so much fun to use and the perfect size for any project. Today, Annette Green shares a beautiful Mother's Day tutorial. Then, Ginger Ropp shares a beautiful Artisan Style ATC Book Box. To close, Yumi has an adorable "Open Sesame" Book Box! Fun!

First, we have a gorgeous Mother's Day idea from Annette using Time to Flourish! Take it away, Annette:

"The ATC book box is such a great size for quick, fun projects! And what better time to start on Mother’s Day gifts than now? I turned the ATC book box into a pretty display piece for my Mom this year. Her style is pretty, flowery and feminine, so Time To Flourish was the perfect choice. I combined the 8” x 8” May Flourish and Cut-Aparts pages with a few sheets from the 6” x 6” Patterns and Solids to create this loving gift for Mom. Hope she likes it!" ~Annette
