Thank you Linda. What a great box. Making them right now for my Mom and Sister for Mother's Day. Great video, easy to follow. I do need to know where you got the magnetics? Can I use velcro? thanks again.

I purchased my magnets from our local scrapbook store. You might be able to find some on-line. They are the thin BasicGrey type. You could also use velcro or purchase other types of magnets.

Thanks for the great question.

Thanks for the tutorial. I definitely became a follower. I wanted to know if this box is for 5x7 size cards. I tend to make more 5x7 size cards more than any other size, but just really wanted to let u know, the box is great.
