This is a quick gift that would look lovely on your Easter table or just a little treat gift. I used the That’s the Tag bundle. That’s the Tag has greetings for weddings, Mother’s Day, new babies, birthday, congratulations, thinking of you, and thanks. But I wanted it for Easter, so I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. That set has a greeting for just about everything!
This box is so beautiful! And did you notice the Window Box Thinlits coordinates with the Sending Love Designer Series Paper® stack? In the video I shared a couple of tricks for working with the Thinlits. For instance, I put a piece of Washi Tape to mark where to place the trapezoid pieces so they align properly.
This box is so very beautiful! The Cable Knit folder gives such an impressive texture. Of course, you could expand the gift card to be a full greeting card and putting the embellishment from the box onto the card.
The directions and video show how to make envelopes large enough for the 2 3/4″ cards and small enough for the 3″ box.
I finally found a perfect storage solution for my 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks! I made a custom box with 3 pieces of the thin cardboard that comes with our 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. It fits up to 6 stacks plus the masks (AKA stencils).
You can use this box without the sturdy reclosable bags, but I think you will “need” them as much as I did! Get the bags here.
In addition to the cardboard, you will need 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper of your choice, 36″ of ribbon, a strong adhesive (Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape), Multipurpose Liquid Glue, a Bone Folder, and a Trimmer.
Perhaps you’ve seen my Gift Box or the chart on Pinterest. It’s one of my most popular pins. But it can be confusing! I mean, I didn’t even put a title on the chart or add my email or website. My reader Chandra was totally confused by this footnote:
*1 Slide until corner of the square made by overlapping score lines is at any diagonal, then score to diagonal corner.
What? It made sense to me at the time but it’s gobbletygook even to me now. So I made a video trying to explain each footnote. They may just be more gobbletygook with lots of repeats.
Chandra, let me know if I’ve answered your question.
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
