Creations by AR April Release and Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to the Creations by AR April Release and Blog Hop. This month's template is an Easel Top Box and it sure is versatile. It can be used as a recipe box, photo holder, or card organizer. I thought 'outside the box' and created an Easter 'Basket' Box!

Here is a picture of the front of my Easel Top Box closed:

Inside view w/Easter goodies:



To give you an idea of the size of this box, these are all the goodies that went in it:



A couple of other ideas I thought of for this box are a recipe file for a bridal shower gift and a baby shower gift with decorated index cards for each month of the baby's first year so the new mom can record important details/events. What ideas do you have for this new template?

The new Easel Top Box template comes in PDF, Silhouette, and SVG formats. Detailed, step-by-step assembly instructions with pictures are included with all Creations by AR templates.


How about a chance to win this new Easel Top Box template! Please visit and comment on all the DT blog posts and the Creations by AR Facebook Page. Comments will be accepted until noon ET on Friday, April 11. The lucky template winner will be announced on Saturday, April 12 on Adela's blog and Facebook Page.
