Hello friends! I'm back this week with a very clean and simple note card set and I'm pairing that with an adorable, clam shell note card BOX for your note cards! You're going to love this little project. These are fun to make but they're also lovely hostess gifts, teacher gifts, great gifts for anyone who loves your handmade cards!! I've created a VIDEO TUTORIAL to show you how to make the box and put the notecards together and you can find the project sheet with supplies and measurements HERE.
Here are a couple of close up photos of the project. You can easily fit 6 note cards with envelopes in the box, maybe even more if you keep the dimension to a minimum, however the Basic White Note Cards + Envelopes pack from Stampin' Up! comes with 20 note cards and envelopes, so if you limit your boxed set to 5 cards and envelopes, you'll be able to get 4 gifts created with one pack of the notecard and envelopes.
Here I've included a close up of the note card decorations... I used the Storybook Gnomes 12x12 Designer Series Paper as the background for these cards. I used the Red & White Glimmer paper to die cut white snowflakes as the embellishment for the cards. Because the cards shine from the glitter, they are easy to see (in person) when you pick up the note card. If they were Basic White card stock, I don't think they'd be as easy to see, they'd really blend in with the background. That glitter paper is fun to have in your supply stash this time of year! It's great for adding sparkly details to catch the eye!!
I used Starry Sky ink to stamp my sentiment on a card stock strip of Pool Party. This helps to bring in a bit of that darker blue from the background paper. The gems I used to finish off the cards are the Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems... these are so pretty and nice to have on hand since they come in a variety of colors on one sheet.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this little clam shell box. It's a great size for other gifts too---like candy, silly socks, snowman soup kits... I'm sure you can think of lots of things to put inside!
