Note Cards In a Box To Go
Happy Saturday! I'm off to the lake to celebrate my Gramma's 88th birthday! She loves to send out note cards, especially when they are handmade by me. *wink*
We are all pitching in on a new swing for her new porch so that she can sit out in the evenings and read or enjoy the sunset. It's going to be such a surprise... and I can't wait to spend some evenings with her swinging and watching the kids play. You can't really wrap that up though, so I decided to make her something for her desk.
These are note cards... I believe the original idea was from the amazing Taylor and I saw some adorable ones by my friend Mish too.
I used all the sentiments from the Absolutely Fabulous stamp set... one on the top, and one in bottom corner. I LOVE that stamp set.. the font is SO pretty. So, now she can easily thumb through by looking at the top and see which card to pick. 12 note cards and envelopes fit nicely... with a bit of room to boot. The box is one piece of 12x12 matching designer paper. You can get the pattern here. The flower on the note card is punched out from the left over Die Cut Blooms (will take a photo and show you later). That idea was from the brilliant Patty Bennett. Use your Circle Punch and go over the left over spot from where you popped the small flowers out. Hope you didn't throw those away. Oh, and Monday is the last chance to order those fun flowers and the designer paper out of the Occasions Mini! :)
