I spent the a weekend with a few of my Stampin’ Sisters, crafting a few weeks ago, and one of the projects we made was a fabulous note card and tag box – which I will admit I still haven’t finished! But it did inspire me to make something a little simpler this week.
The original box, in Mint Macaron, uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and coordinating Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper, while the video version is in Fruit Stand with the Fresh Fruit Stamp set.
Box Base – 9 1/2 x 4″, score on the long side at 1, 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 9″ and the short side at 1″
Box Lid – 9 3/4 x 3″, score on the long side at 1 1/8, 4 5/8, 5 11/16, 9 1/4″, and the short side at 1″
Designer Series Paper – 1 piece 3/4 x 3 1/4″, 2 pieces 3/4 x 1 3/4″, and 2 pieces 1 3/4 x 3 1/4″
The note cards in this set at 3 x 4″ cards, created by cutting card stock to 4 x 6″ and scoring at 3″. The Designer Series Paper is cut to 2 3/4 x 3 3/4. Have I mentioned about the Designer Series Paper yet? No! For the month of October if you buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper, you can choose another pack for FREE! isn’t that awesome?!
The final part of this project is the envelopes. I make no secret of the fact that I adore the Envelope Punch Board, and I couldn’t make a project with Designer Series Paper without making my own custom envelopes! The punch board lists all the measurements you need for heaps of different card sizes, and so just by looking at the board I found that for 3 x 4″ note cards, you need a piece of 6 x 6″ Designer Series Paper – that means that you get 4 of these envelopes from a sheet of 12 x 12! Handy! The board then instructs you to punch and score at 2 5/8″ to create the envelope.
