Cute Little Card Box

I attended a card class a few weeks ago, with my friend Caryl and we made these cute little card boxes. I really like making these gift type items and I plan to make several more of these. All supplies are from Stampin Up!

This is the box with the lid in place. The papers I used are from the Walk in the Park Designer Paper Series, I believe. And look what is inside the box...

We made dividers to keep all the goodies organized. Now in this one, I've chosen to leave the cards blank and I can add a pre-stamped sentiment to suit whatever the occasion may be. The stamp set we used is called Oval All and has sentiments like, thank you, just for you, fabulous friend and we used the Stampin Up! oval punches to cut them out. And now take a look at the cards...we made six.

I put a few of the sentiment tags on so you could see what the finished cards would look like. The sentiments and the colored 'frames' are mounted on dimensionals and can be used together or individually. The cards themselves are rather plain, but I really appreciate the simplicity of the's very nice and clean. The addition of the buttons and brads dresses them up just enough. I am anxious to make more of these boxes, because I will be able to use up my ever growing supply of designer paper and card stock!

I am so glad you stopped by today! Thanks for visiting.
