Christmas in July with Taylored Expressions!

I'm back with another little project that I'm excited to share with you!
The Baker's Dozen are celebrating Christmas in July....my favourite holiday ;)
Have you seen these super cool Perfect Packages from Taylored Expressions? Well they are a great heavy weight box that folds flat but when assembled is very sturdy. It's a snap to put together too....no glue or tape. It has a great magnetic closure on the front flap too!! I've linked to the small square box that holds 3 x 3 cards.
Here I've decorated the outside to be very similar to what my cards on the inside look like.
I've used my FAVE set from Taylored Expressions called Branching Out.
I made 8 identical cards like the one below and included 8 envelopes in the box as well. My cards have a little dimension to them but you can definitely fit more in there.
Stamps: Branching Out; Cardstock: Choice Buttercream, Dusty Durango, Old Olive, MME dp; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Mat pack and paper piercer, MM flowers, buttons, Linen thread, Dusty Durango ribbon, Scalloped edge punch, Dimensionals
How about popping by the Baker's Dozen blogs and seeing what FAB creations they have to share?!
Now for a special!
Christmas stamp sets will be 20% off July 15-25. Also Taylor will give away a set of 5 of the new Perfect Packages in a random drawing, so stop by Taylor's Blog for the details!
Thanks for stopping by...be sure to scroll down for my first post from earlier today!
