Homemade Stationary Gift Box

Hello! Happy Sunday to you! It's a little bit like winter this weekend in Maryland.  Of course Simba and Bailey had to prove to me it was anything, but warm outside.  Those boys do not go out of the yard if it is a beautiful sunny day, however, if it is raining, cold, icy or nasty outside off they go and I am usually in my PJ's chasing them like a maniac and today was no exception:) Brrrr it was cold.

You don't want to go out in the cold? Well come on over to TTCRD's challenge and create "Anything but a card and your own embellishment"  It was a lot of fun and  Ippity Demonstrator,  Rona is offering a $15,00 gift certificate to one lucky winner who enters the challenge!

I decided to make a stationary gift box. One of my customers has requested small thank you and hello note cards and I thought what a cool way to deliver them.. For my home made embellishment,  I made a rosette flower using this technique and added a Bo Bunny Trinket to the center of it!


The sides fall down when you remove the lid.  Inside the address book is line paper and  compartments for your pen, stamps, tags, note and greeting cards.  I found the tutorial here!  It was really easy to do! And not a single thing is colored with copics!! YAH me!





Thank you for stopping in and visit the TTCRD to see the rest of the wonderful creations made by the DT. They are really fantastic!
