working the brochure box

 So, while I was working with this box for my Copics, it occurred to me that this would be a great box for some "Note" cards I do.  I set about resizing a bit and did not want to do them from chipboard, I have some "Mohawk" 100# Cover but felt it was maybe too light weight for the box but I cut it out anyway, I loved the size but still felt if I could just stiffen it up a little it would be perfect.  This morning the idea came to me spray paint the box with my "Design Master" floral spray, I grabbed a can "Basil" and sprayed the outside and inside.  This gave the paper just the stability I was looking for.  I didn't fussy it up too much as this was a test run, I put a floral tag from the Silhouette Library on it and penned in "Just a Note" with my Chomas Pen holder. Added 6 note cards tied with a bow and a pen.  It works!
As you can see from the side view it nice and sturdy and the box could even hold 12 cards and a pen.  Hope you are having a good Thursday, I am inside with AC, still hot here.  Hugs
