Black Cat USA Forum Fall/Halloween 2011 Crop Challenge


I am excited that my very first post on my new blog is a challenge project for the Black Cat USA Fall/Halloween Crop which starts at 6:00 PM CST today.  With permission from Jane Matsumoto, I adapted her Accordion Style Card Box, which I found on the Split Coast Stampers website, for cutting with cutting machines.

The challenge is to construct the basic box from my file, and embellish it and the index cards in any way you wish.  I think it is a great little organizing tool, and can be used for die cuts, cards, recipes and many other things.  I hope you have as much fun making it as I did.  

Here are photos of a couple of the boxes that I made:

And these are the index cards that go inside:

Here is the link to my files including written instructions, SVG and MTC cutfiles:!125

Here is the link to Jane's Split Coast Stampers Tutorial, which has a very nicely done video.

Here is the link to Jane's Blog with lots of great card ideas:

There is a most excellent group of people over on the Black Cat US Forum.  If you would like to check it out, here is the link:
