Gift Box of cards

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick post today but I couldn't wait to share this project.

I've been so busy making cards with the Hello Irresistible DSP  that I thought they would make a super gift and decided to make a box for them, Giving a handful of cards doesnt look anywhere near as impressive as a they do in a pretty box. You could also use this box for keeping photos afterwards if you didnt want to refil it with cards or even pop some Easter chocs inside. I mustn't get thinking about chocs!! Did you spot the pretty Crinkled Seam Binding too? Just a little delicate finishing touch! Oops - forgot to add the Frosted dots - not in the photo but imagine three little dark greenish frosted dots. Im adding these to all the makes with these papers - there are so many in the pot that you can afford to be generous. 😊





I made it to fit European C6 size envelopes. It measures 7 x 5 x 1 . There are lots of tutorials on YT but made for US cards and too small for UK. I based this on a tutorial by JanB and tweaked it a little, adding extra layers tomake the 6 x6 DSP fit and inking the die-cut flowers.   I think a gift like this with a set of cards would make a fun card class. Private message me if you would be interested.


Thanks so much for joining me
