Box for cards






Yesterday I told you I was going to make a box for a variety of greeting cards I am sending my sister for her birthday.  This is what I came up with. 

This is a 6x6" box.  I used one of the 6x6 Webster's Pages for the top. Strips from a larger piece of Webster's Pages dp were cut to decorate the sides of the bottom of the box.  Mulberry flowers were arranged on top of a Martha Stewart punched design.  I really love working with these flowers. Some vellum leaves I made, and a few green sprigs from a MS punch, were added under the flowers.  Yellow vellum butterflies, from a MS punch, were added.  Pink pearls from Kaiser Crafts were added.  All these supplies are from Joan's Gardens.

A birthday greeting from one of the new JustRite stamp sets "Birthday Centers" and a border from the "10 Designer Centers and Borders" was stamped using black ink on yellow card stock.  It was cut out with a Nestability.  The edge of the lid has lace I received from a great friend (Thanks Eileen).  A piece of narrow yellow twine was added to the top of the lace with ScorTape to bring out the yellow to the sides. 

The box is filled with a variety of 5.5" square cards.  I know she will love this gift so now I'm off to get it in the mail.

Thanks for visiting again today.

I think you should make a bunch of these and then create your own web site and sell them. They are beautiful.
