More Under The Stars

I guess I need to add a few more details to this...I thought by now everyone had seen these stationary boxes and made at least one! Thank you for your questions, I'll do my best to include them all in my explanation.
The box itself and the instructions are from Jackie Topa. Her tutorial can be found here.
In the box there are three pockets. The large pocket is for regular cards and envelopes. One of the smaller pockets is used to hold four 3" x 3" cards and envelopes. I made my little card fronts the same on all 4. I made 2 with Old Olive and 2 with Chocolate Chip cardstock.

The tags are in the other pocket. My tag fronts are all the same. I made 2 in Real Red and 2 in Baja Breeze. My tag size is 2 1/4" x 2 1/2".In my box, I included 4 cards and 4 envelopes. Two each of these two designs. Yes, I cut the raccoon apart and it's just his head and butt hanging out. The top card is the bears head and upper body inside the wide oval punch. The layer is made using the oval Coluzzle. Bottom card, both ovals are with the Coluzzle. Bears are stamped on Creamy Caramel cardstock. I used watercolor crayons to shade them a bit.
Outside Cover

I used Lovely as a Tree and masked the raccoon. I used watercolor crayons and blender pens to color it in. Those are fake buttons on the left with 1/2" & 1/4" circle punches.

In Jackie's instructions she makes this into an address book. I made mine into a birthday book.
