A Very Boxy H{ippity} Hop

Hi. It's me. I'm back. Yup, four days in a row. I'm on a roll, peeps! What's really amazing about that, is I can barely walk. Thank goodness for my kids, who have been extremely helpful in playing step & fetch. I've got an appointment at 10:30, so here's hoping the doc can do something other than say "here, take some more narcotics." No worries. My back does this periodically. I'll be fine in a few more days.

This is my first H{ippity} Hop since December 6th! I am so happy to get back to it!

I made a batch of 3x3 notecards this weekend, with Just Wanted to Say, for All Things Unity, so I wanted to make a little box to hold them in. I used the tutorial on SCS for the measurements. One quick warning - there is a slight goof on there currently. For patterned paper A, you really want that to be 5 1/4". If you go by the measurements she gives in the video, I think, everything works out properly, but if you go by the typed measurements, 5 1/8" will cause headaches and much gnashing of teeth. Trust me on this one.
In keeping with Cute Card Thursday's challenge, Out With the Old, there is not a single thing new used in the creation of this box. Everything came from stash that is at least 6 months old, if not older. By the way, that's one of my resolutions this year - use my stuff. If I'm not using it, I don't need to have it. Right?

Other challenges this little box is for are Flourishes (FTTC99 - flowers) and Let's Ink it Up (anything goes so long as it's rubber, not digi).

That's all from me today. If you haven't been there yet, hop on over to the {ippity} blog and see who's hopping today. The DT will have a new twist on the monthly challenge to go with last week's sketch and don't forget there's a comment prize. It could be hidden on any blog, DT or hopper.

Hope you all have a great day!
