Stationery Box





I found this GREAT tutorial for a stationery box on the Wonderfully Whimsy blog and had to try! This tutorial is super, it gives you all the dimensions and instructions you need to create this great project. The only thing I changed was to add 2 Velcro dots to the back of the box to hold it together better when it's closed. Here's my results:

I use the Stampin' Up set Petal Pizzazz with SU Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss ink. The main cardstock for the box is a textured cardstock from Best Occassions.

The inside of the box has openings to hold cards and envelopes, tags, small note cards, a note pad, and stamps. My box has 4 cards and envelopes, 4 small note cards and envelopes, 4 gift tags, one note pad, and 8 stamps.

This is really nice.

Diane (h.s.momoffive) made me one in COW PAPER! I love it!

I've not made one because it looks complicated and like it would take a long time to make.

Reckon you'll have to convince me (like you did the flower pot card). (wink wink)
