I'm so excited to share a little gift I've made for a close friend! When Taylored Expressions came out with the Faith & Hope set I knew my friend would love some cards made with the sentiments! Card sets are something she loves to receive from me but I didn't just want to hand her a bunch of cards ;) I wanted to put them IN something. So I created this little gift box. This holds 4 cards and envelopes but I'm sure you could squeeze six in there!
For the front of my box I used the flower from the Beary Special Accessories and also a sentiment from A Year of Sweet Sentiments.
I hope that she will use the gift box for something else someday and that is why I went with a simple sentiment....which I happen to love!
I am going to try to explain how I created this.
To create the box I used:
5 x 11 cardstock scored at 2.5 and 9
5 x 8.5 cardstock scored at 2
Tape the two pieces together on the 2" sides(bottom of box)
For the inside holders you will need two of the following:
3.5 x 7.5 scored at 1/2, 1 1/2, 6, 7.
Tape the small 1/2" sides to the inside of the box.
I scalloped the flap edge but you can decorate it however you like.
Here is a side view which you can click to enlarge. Sorry I didn't get an inside shot before giving it away :(
I've made four simple cards using the Faith & Hope Stamp set.
