Sherri Baldy's My Besties Pumpkin Easel Card

I am now on Sherri Baldy's My Besties Video team on Youtube.  I will be making monthly videos, and sometimes videos more often than that.  This is one of first videos that i have released..but it isn't my first video using My Besties as my main focus.

This blog post is a follow-up to my Youtube Video making pumpkin boxes and an Easel card with Sherri Baldy's image

How did i come up with this idea?  First, a DT friend, Miranda created a present box easel card and she shared her instructions here and the desire to create these became really popular.  I wanted to do something different and came across a Pinterest post w/a video showing how to make pumpkin boxes using a Box board (similar to the Envelope board) and i really didn't want to buy the box board, so i went searching for a way to make a 1" box and came across another video on Pinterest showing how to make a 1" box.  I knew i'd like another 1.5" box so i asked my mathematical husband if he could figure the dimensions..and instantly he did.  Yay.

So i will share all the links below..so you can also see how i formulated this concept..and maybe you will have a better idea.  :)
