I have had many requests for the Magic Box directions. I originally found a tutorial on my friend Patti's blog "Creations by Patti" and fell in love with the whole concept of a surprise in a box. Patti is one of the most creative and talented people I know! If you have not discovered her site yet, please do check it out and you will be happy you did! You can see all of her wonderful creations here: http://www.creationsbypatti.blogspot.com/
You can find her posting for the cake in a box at http://creationsbypatti.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2009-06-03T02%3A00%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=10 If you should have a problem, it is her May 29, 2009 posting.
The little house in the center of Ali's Magic Box is the pop-up cake die as a base and my own design for the roof, which I will have to refine. So at this time I have no pattern to pass on, but when I do I will post it for you.
Thank you so much to all of you who contacted me with your kind words and good thoughts for Ali! She continues to be very ill and needs all that you can send!
I will be posting a new card later today! Wishing you a good one! It is hot, hot, hot weather here in WI.
