Just recently found your videos and Love watching them. But, a lot of the paper you use is out of stock. Just wondering if you will be restocking them? I would really like the Pick and Mix paper. Thanks.

I made this between last night and today and I have to say that the way it turned out is probably my favorite project I’ve made to date! Thank you so much for the detailed instructions and step by step video. I didn’t have any acetate so I made a cardstock cover. I didn’t like how it looked inside the box as it looked like the whole project was upside down, so I made a lid to go on the outside. It turned out beautiful



I made this! Your instructions are so clear! Thought you might like to know what happened. A friend was having a very bad day unknown to me. It was her birthday so I decided to make the box for her. I took it to her and she greeted me at the door in tears.So I had the opportunity to encourage her. God is so GOOD!



Hi Maymay.
I really enjoy your videos. I find them to be very entertaining yet educational. I have viewed several of your videos about making card boxes but they all seem to be for A2 sized cards but my preferred sized card is the 5 X 7. Have you dine any videos to create a gift box for 5 X 7 cards? If not, would you consider making a video for 5 X 7 card gift box? Thanks again for all of your great video! Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!



Hello Maymay, I’ve recently started watching your videos and I have to say I love you calm voice! :) this video is exceptional it’s very nicely explained and I can’t wait to get started on this project and create some gift sets for Christmas! Thank you and have a lovely day!

Hi Amy, I love this idea/design and can’t wait to make some for gifts! I was wondering where do you get your sheets of acetate from? I haven’t been able to find a supplier who doesn’t charge an arm and a leg. I couldn’t find them in your store and it wasn’t listed in the supplies for this project. Thanks and have a blessed day!
