First and foremost I want to thank you ALL for all the wonderful comments and sweet e-mails about my previous post! I've read them over and over and I'm sure I'll read them over and over again.....you all totally made my day (gosh, my year). I'm on cloud nine and still can't really believe it all!
I'm SO excited to be sharing my first project with you all today. This is the first of many I will be sharing until the big release on the 15th. So much fun!
4. Attach your patterned paper to one side of you cardstock. Use a rounded object (I keep a paper plate on hand for projects like this) and trace lightly with pencil on the backside of your cardstock. Trim with scalloped scissors.
5. After trimming I put a tiny pencil mark in each scallop. Then flip your punch over so you can see each mark thru the hole...then punch. I find it makes for a much more accurate punch by doing it this way.
6. Attach this to the box base and this is what you'll have. I used a magnet from Basic Grey to secure the flap...kind of reminds me a women's handheld clutch (is that what those little purses are called?). I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies on the white cardstock. After cutting and embossing my cs I stamped my flowers and then punched out circles from my patterned paper for the centers. The flowers and sentiment are all part of my new stamp set!
And there you have it! A nice boxed gift set for that special woman in your life! Depending how embellished your cards are you should be able to fit 5 to 8 cards and envelopes in there.
I hope you enjoyed this project! Be sure to stop back tomorrow....I have lots more to share with you!
