Another quick survey - what project would you prefer to learn?

A couple of posts ago, I let you know about the month long Make the Cut! blog hop that will be taking place in May, and Cre8ive Cutz will be participating. I've narrowed down the list of possible projects for my day to two, so now I'm looking for your help to decide which one to do! In both cases, I would create a two part video tutorial, the first part showing you how to create the project file in Make the Cut!, and the second part showing you how to assemble the project.

The two project options are:
  1. How to create greeting cards with shaped 3D designs down the side (similar to this project)
  2. How to create a basic box with a lid.
Please take a second to vote below to let me know which project you'd prefer.  Whichever project gets the most votes is the one I will do!  Thanks so much for your help!

Next,during the month of May, there's going to be a month long Make the Cut! blog hop!  That's right, a blog hop that lasts an entire month! A group of designers including myself have got together to bring you great projects and creative inspiration all month long, with a new blog added every day of the month.  Check back on the first to find out how to get started.

And finally, I have a new card to share with you! I made this card to give to my grandmother for Mother's Day this year, using techniques I showed you in my last two video tutorials.  The lattice on the card was made using the How to Make a Lattice Frame in Make the Cut! video and the flower was made using my How to Make Layered Dimensional Flowers video. And the design for the card came from this week's Mojo Monday challenge:
Here's the card I made based on the sketch:

Whew, that was a long post!  LOL  Well, have a great Easter weekend everyone!
