  1. Your box making process is the same as mine except I use scratch paper. I think it might be easier to visualize if I use the grid paper. Thanks for that tip.

    As for my favorite project, it’s easier to say which one is my least favorite! They all are great ideas and designs (even my least favorite).

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. While watching your video on the Gnome box today…….I think I saw your small tag die on your gnome die magnet board. I think!
    Have enjoyed all the 12 days & have a Wonderful Christmas Holiday

  3. Thank you so much for the box making tips! I hadn’t thought of using the grid paper but I will definitely go to that! I also put back a couple packs of retired incolor cardstock to use as practice boxes. I make one then make a template for it with all the sizes written on one. It is so much easier to throw away retired cardstock!
