  1. I love this box, now a question, I’m not good with measurements, I want to make this same box but slightly longer and a little wider. Thank you DEFINITELY appreciates that. Yes you will be my “go-to” blog for handmade gifts. Again thank you Julie, for sharing your ideas with us.

  2. Love this idea…..have already ordered the lotion from Bath & Body. The best thing about your projects is that you also show or give an idea of what to put in them. Count me in as one that DEFINITELY appreciates that. You are my “go to” blog for handmade Stampin’ Up gifts. Thank you, Julie, for sharing your talents with us.

Have a question or comment? I’d love to hear from you!
