Thank You Notes in a Box

Inspired by the easy creativity of my Upline Sandra I tried my hand and making a box to contain a set of Thank You notes I had made for a friend. It was surprisingly easy! You know that adage "measure twice, cut once"? REALLY important as it turns out!! LOL! The first box I made was too narrow but ... c'est la vie! Next one was perfect.

I used the new Natural Composition Specialty paper (although I forgot to get a picture of it for you!) - this one ...
It worked out better than I'd anticipated. This paper is thicker than most of our card stock and is easily sturdy enough for box making.

To keep the cards from falling out of the box I simply wrapped a strip of Very Vanilla card stock around it and embellished it as you see.

The notes themselves are super simple but that's really all you need, right?

Here are close ups of them all.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm thinking this might make a good class - what do you think? Speaking of classes have you seen my new Christmas class yet? Click on the picture below to be taken to my Eventbrite site for all the details.

  1. Ooooh, very nice, love the doilies there (is that vellum you cut them out of?) and the cards themselves are wonderful (especially like the top one)! Hugs, Rox.
