Design Team Call Entry for
Discount Paper Crafts on Etsy

 
 
 
Hi everyone! Well, I have decided to throw my hat in the ring for a Design Team call for Discount Paper Crafts on Etsy! I just adore Cathy's store, she is my "go to" person for all things Prima and Tim Holtz!  I have been shopping in Cathy's store for a while now and I am always impressed by the customer service, quality and friendliness she provides, not to mention the great prices!
 
I have created an Exploding Cigar box, well not literally lol! But this vintage box is made to look like all the yummy goodies are just bursting out of the box. Most of what I used I got from Discount Paper Crafts, so do be sure to check out Cathy's store, the link is above. There will be a complete list of items I used at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
