Fun with Carousel Notes

When I saw the Carousel Notes in the Summer Mini catalogue I loved them immediately.  They are scalloped after all, and what's not to love about scallops?!  I loved the idea that they could instantly funk up a card or scrapbook layout, but wanted to see what else I could get them to be. So I played, and I had FUN, and I played some more...  And then I left the results of my playing strewn about my desk for a few days before I finished off the project that I had had in my mind all along....

Without a great deal of stuffing about AT ALL, the Carousel Note becomes a neat little box lid, and with the addition of a box base and a bit of a belly band, this is the result.

I made it so that it would perfectly fit our Love Notes & Envelopes and made up a simple set of these to go inside - easy to do when you're working with paper as beautiful as Ginger Blossom :)
