I chose to make the star topped box by Lori Whitlock. I altered it by adding holes to the top so I could draw it in like a purse, I also added snowflakes to each side by cutting them out of the box with the Cameo...love it. Now I know we should be looking toward spring...but here in Northern Ontario...it'll be winter until April :) Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :) Click HERE to check out the other DT projects...and pan down to the recipe to see the cuts and sizes that I used.
