Just Us Girls #26 Template challenge... A Very Happy Birthday

Howdy!  It's Just Us Girls template challenge week with Lauren Meader and My time Made Easy!  The challenge is to use a template to make a project.

Peek a boo!  Here's my mini version of the Slip Cover box that Lauren shared with the JUGs this week.  At full size, the template makes a box to house a set of cards.  I shrunk the template 50% and cut it with SCAL and my Cricut (love!) and it's the perfect gift card holder!
I covered the slip cover panels with a fabbie DP from Basic Grey leaving a little charcoal cardstock peeking around the edges.
Cute huh?  The best thing about the slip cover is that the recipient can open her gift without disturbing the "wrapping"  Love that!  Great design Lauren!

Ready for more?  Check out the JUGs girl...they are sure to delight!

Thanks so much for coming by!  Please be sure to link us up to your project over at the Just Us Girls blog. You could win a template of your own from Lauren Meader and her My Time Made Easy Store!

OH DANA - I love that you used it for a gift card - It's the perfect gift card box yes! Love your fun paper and what a quick but stunning way to wrap it up! ROCK ON girl. Actually full sized - the template will hold 4-6 A2 cards so even more than you might think. BUT I love the mini version.
