Beate's Challenge

I have never participated in Beates weekend challenge #94. Isn't that CRAZY!!!! Well I had to wrap up a fun DVD baby tin I made for a good friend who just had a baby girl. She makes invitations for weddings and showers, so I wanted to do something really neat. As soon as I saw the weekend sketch, I knew it would work well for the front of the case I created for the DVD tin. Here is the sketch
Here is the front of my case.

This is the front of the DVD tin. Sorry it is blurry.
I have done other posts about the baby dvd tin gift, so I won't go into that this time. What I do want to chat about is the captured case. This case is a Mytimeless Template offered by Papertrey Ink. I love the templates and I really did forget how fun and easy they are to use. I am going to have to add a few more to my stockpile LOL!
The origional case that you make holds normal cards. I needed something bigger for my DVD tin, so I firgured it out! It really worked out just fine. I used a whole 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper scored at 1 1/2 on each side. I then constructed the bottom of the box. I took another paper for the top and cut it to 8 X 10 and then scored 3 sides at one inch and one of the long sides at 1 1/2. You then cut out and assemble like the origional template and then assemble. It was easy and it fits my DVD perfectly!
It's a good life!
