So, let's check out these new files! I'll start with the Card Armoire, a neat little place to store your favorite notecards or present a set of cards to someone as a gift. It was super easy, using Make the Cut with my Silhouette Cameo. There are other versions too, including PDF files for those of you cutting by hand!

I made mine to match my craft area, but I can see SO many possibilities for this! I used Graphic 45 papers and stickers, Bazzill Cardstock, Tim Holtz gears, and brads & eyelets from my stash.

Here's a better angle of the "sign" I made for the top of my armoire. I cut a strip of cardstock 3" long and scored it at .5", 1.5", and 2.5", and used the short sides as the base.

The top lifts up on a hinge, releasing the doors of the armoire.

There's plenty of room inside for notecards - the exact number will depend on how lumpy-bumpy you like to make yours!

Now for the Fragrance Bottle Set, or should I say Potion Bottles...

I was in a Halloween mood, and those bottles were telling me they wanted to be potion bottles so I went for it! For these two items, I used Close To My Heart products, including Scaredy Cat papers and the Magic Potions stamp set.

The cologne bottle was perfect for some Pickled Toad...

and the perfume bottle was just right for some Bat Wing Brewing Powder.

Inside each bottle is a little container with room for some sweet treats or party favors.

Plus there's an optional insert, making it easy to give a gift card to a special someone if your occasion calls for it. In fact, I can't wait to make a few of these for Christmas - I know some girls who would love some gift cards to the beauty shop!
