Bottom: Perfect Plum cardstock cut to 7 5/8 x 8 7/8, scored at 1/2 inch all around and then at 1 inch all around. This creates a box that is 1 inch deep. It holds these six cards with minimal embellishments (brads) and six envelopes.
Top: Sahara Sand cardstock cut to 6 3/4 x 8 inches, scored all around at 1/2 inch and then at 1 inch all around. This creates a lid that is 1/2 inch deep.
From that point, just follow the directions in Resources, steps 2 through 4.
Before folding the top, I stamped it with the jumbo wheel and Pale Plum ink, cut out the window leaving a 1/2 inch border and edged it with the copper leafing pen. I then attached the acetate sheet (cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) with 1/8 inch sticky strip all around the inside edges of the window.
I used my Big Kick with the Cuttlebug Vintage Die and Brushed Copper cardstock to make the decorative corners. They're coated with Versamark and heat embossed with copper EP to better match the copper leafing. My Xyron 150 worked great for adhering them into the corners of the window.

Oh! Linda! If I took heart medicine I'd need an extra dose right now because I'm all aflutter over this! There simply are no words. One thing, though...this just made your Big Kick purchase worth every penny! Whew! We have to talk...
