Gypsy Spot Challenge Week #2 - Thanksgiving Recipe Card Gift Box

For this week's welding challenge I used a simple notecard box from the Wild Card cartridge and welded the word "Thanks" from Gypsy Wanderings in the center. I also used little pilgrim cuts form PDDU to dress it up. These notecard boxes could be given to your Thanksgiving dinner guests, containing recipe cards for the dishes you made. A simple but cute little favor.

Click here to download the gypsy cut file used.

Cut file also includes a frame from Wild Card that I cut out and used to back the opening of the box.

**Please note that when you weld a cut that normally includes scoring marks with another cut, the scoring marks disappear. For me, I prefer it that way, as I think scoring marks tend to stick out funny and make the project look less finished. If you're a person who needs the scoring marks, you may not want to use this file. I used my new Martha Stewart scoring board to do this box and I referenced my Wild Card manual to see where the scoring lines should occur.

Feel free to comment or email me with any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!
