A Beautiful Pocket Card & Box

I'm lovin' this new set, A Beautiful Thing, and its coordinating dsp, Bali Breeze. I never would have thought to put taken with teal and old olive together, but I think they look great together! I made this card for my New Catalog Open House. And I made a peek-a-boo box as the door prize.


My friend, Jennifer, told me a trick to get the rhinestone brads to lay flat against the paper.


Use your template from the tool kit to line up two holes on either side of the middle of the flower and punch with paper piercer.

Then insert the brad like so:

This is what it will look like on the back:


Great tip, thanks Jen!
