One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up demonstrator is being one of the first to see the new catalogue. I look forward to when I can sneak off quietly and browse through my copy. I'm one of those people who can't take it all in at once so I have a system. First I head straight for the punch section then I go through the catty page by page and drool over all the new products. Lastly I go through and look at the samples. On my third twentieth time through the catty I spotted these cute little faux wooden crates on page 148. The looked super simple to make and I couldn't wait to try one.
I used Stampin' Up's Kraft Card Stock which is a bit heavier than regular card stock.
