Velcro! That's brilliant! I just did one last night that I was going to add a pen to. My plan was ribbon loops sticking out of the paper on the inside. Guess what I forgot? Yup, the ribbon loops. I'd better dig out the Velcro!!! TFS!

I love this!!! You put so much work into it and it shows! Shame on your MIL! ;) She should have jumped for joy! I know I would if I got it! I really think pepole who don't stamp should be the most excited to get something like this. I mean, come on, free cards! Just so ya know, my MIL would react the same way because that's just how she is... Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation!

This is drop-dead gorgeous! It's bright, it's vintage looking (my personal favorite), it's country French (another favorite) and I love rooster stuff. My jaw hit the table when I saw this. Beautiful job.

I just ordered lunch boxes from Joann Fabrics because of this! Your box is so beautiful and what a GREAT gift! They are on sale and there is free shipping for orders of $25 and over. Thank you for the inspiration. (Now if I can figure out how you decorate these...glue the designs on? Hmmm....

This is just beautiful!! You put so much beauty and creativity into to it and so much of yourself. It's a shame she didn't appreciate the gift. I know lots of us here love it. So if she changes her mind and wants you to have it, there are lots of us here who would probably bid on it so it could come to our house! You are a true artist!
