Winter Post

Quick post to show you a couple of Winter Post projects :) ! I've been admiring this set from the Holiday Mini and a friend let me stamp a few images last week (Thanks Nance!). After stamping these images, the set officially moved from my admiring list to my wish list :) ! It is an absolutely gorgeous set... love it! I even got out my sewing machine for the card. Sewing still intimidates me a little, but it's getting better.
This triangle box was super fun to make. I used Beate's tutorial over at SCS and it was so easy! Great little project and you can make 'em any size. This one is a 4" triangle. You can find Beate's tutorial right HERE. This Winter Post Triangle Box was a prize that I gave away at my workshop tonight (Congrats Sheri!).

LOVE your sewing on the card, Nancy! You are braver than I am, and obviously much better at sewing than I am! LOL!

Your triangle box couldn't be cuter! I'm going to have to try one of those!

I am so glad you posted a side view! I made one as well, but it didn't look like the one on the tutorial. I will finish mine now that it looks right! I am too OCD.
