I made this set of Fresh Fruits cards and matching tote as a thank you gift. I minimized the layers and lumps (embellishments) so she wouldn't have to concern herself with extra postage. All the fruits are colored with chalks (Poppin' Pastels) and sprayed with matte sealer. I don't think I'm very good at ensembles or collections because I get tired of working on too much of the same thing. I hope she likes it.
The tote is an adaptation of a 2-4-6-8 box. I'm also posting a photo of just the tote. Cut cardstock 5 3/4" x 11". Score on the long side at 3/4". Turn and score across at 3/4", 5 1/4", 6" and 10 1/2". See Post #3 of this thread for rmower's really great instructions:
