I have a quick little gift idea for you today for our meet up with Fancy Pants!
This is a very easy little box of mini notecards, complete with envelopes ready to give to a loved one. I have made a few of these for gifts this year and even though it is close to Christmas there is still time if you an extra gift to give.
Paper - Country Boutique by Fancy Pants
Scoring Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Envi
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
For the base of the box start with a piece of patterned paper measuring 5 3/4" square. Score at 1" on all 4 sides. Snip up one side of the mini square formed at the corners to make the flap to form the base.
Add Scor-Tape to the corners and form the base using the scoring tool on the inside corners to make crisp corners.
For the lid use a piece of paper 6" square and score at 1". Then using a border punch create a decorative edge before forming the lid. Snip the corners the same as the base and use Scor-Tape to adhere the flaps to make the corners.
Here you can see how the lid fits.
Using a strip of paper measuring 12" by 1 3/4" score at 2 3/4". 4", 8" and 9 1/4" along the long side. Use Scor-Tape on the overlap to form a belly band to secure the box closed.
Add a sentiment to the belly band to decorate.
Here is the box from the side.
Using the measurements on the Scor-Envi create envelopes for 3" cards. I actually made the cards 3 1/4" square as the envelope allowed a little more space.
Decorate the note cards as desired.
This makes a perfect quick gift, one that will surely be treasured.
