Stationery Box Set

Good Evening Bloggers,

Checking in from the scrap cave. It's another Friday night where the bf is sleep on the couch and Miss A is doing who knows what up in her room. I started the evening working on the guest book for a friend's wedding, but while the paint was drying I got sidetracked by another project. A while ago, I came across this tutorial on Split Coast Stampers. I decided to give it a try. I'm not completely finished, but I wanted to share it with you since I will be out all day tomorrow.

Opened Up

Close-up of Notepad & Pen

A2 Cards in back, 3x3 Notecards in front

Notepad, Pen, and Postage holder

I used the Mediterranean Cafe DCWV stack for all the papers. The key is to use a really heavy two-sided cardstock for the main box. I wanted to use the striped paper, but it wasn't two-sided. I am really surprised how quickly this came together. I am going to make the following to put inside (and I'll post them when I get them done): 6 A2-sized cards, 6 3x3 notecards, and 6 gift tags.

I'll be showcasing this over at Alex's Blog: You Had Me at Craft: I Made it Myself Moday

Thanks for stopping by.

Stay Crafty
