Xyron and Epiphany Crafts - Day Four Blog Hop

It's so much fun when two awesome companies pair up to bring you a week of inspiration - and this week Xyron and Epiphany Crafts have teamed up.  Be sure to check out the blogs for more inspiration and giveaways.

I've come up with a 3-in-1 Box to share with you today.  You may ask, what do you mean, 3-in-1?  Well, at first glance you see a single project....but the sliding lid to this box is actually, a tag.

And inside this little box, is tucked an adorable mini album. 

So here is the whole set shown together.  I think this will be a perfect idea to use anytime I need to put together a little gift for someone.
