Not just an ordinary Tag Topper!

On page 35 of the Occasions mini catalogue, you'll find the new tag toppers that Stampin' Up! is offering.  Those toppers make wonderful tags and can, of course, be used for a whole lot of other projects as well.  Remember my little Valentine's chocolate holder?

Well, yesterday I was waiting at a train stop and my mind began wandering (waiting can do that to a mind).  And suddenly I had one of those "lightbulb" moments.  I did everything but shout out "eureka".  What did my wandering mind come up with?  Just like that, waiting for a train to pass, I figured out how to use that punch to make an adorable little box.  This idea came complete with score lines, measurements...the whole shebang!  Wow, huh?

So, of course, as soon as I got home I took out a piece of paper and a pencil and sketched out that template so that I wouldn't forget it.  Last night I finally had time to try it out.  And, guess what!  It worked perfectly!  I'm going to have to wait for trains more often.


Today I'm going to get to work and make another little box.  This time, however, I'm going to take photos of each step.  That way, along with the template which I plan to post, you'll be able to make one of these cute boxes, too.  Excited?  I sure am!
