Stationery Box

Thursday, June 17, 2010

This stationery box is one I adapted from ones that are on you tube. I made it as a present for a friend's birthday. I really enjoy making little sets of cards and this one went abit further.

I had to alter the size of the box as I couldn't get my cards and envelopes to fit inside and also decided to make it abit simpler leaving off the extra items on the flap.

I decided I would make 5 cards and added the envelopes, made 6 gift tags and added a post it note pad.

It all turned out really well except if I did it again I would use thicker paper for the box to make it abit sturdier.
See you soon.

Quite often, when reading another blog that has something paper crafty to make on it, I will give it a go. This time it was after reading Jennifer Morris's blog that I thought I would give this a go.

What is it you asked, well it is an organiser that you can use as a menu planner, diary, to do list, notepad or maybe all the above, whatever you like really.
This is the back of the organiser. I just used patterned paper on the front and a piece of purple card on the back which matches the flowers on the front.

I made it a couple of months ago but still haven't created any A5 sheets to put on it though. I can't quite decide what to use it for.

A present for my sister in law.

For my sister in law birthday I decided to make her a birthday card and present. First off the card. For some reason I didn't take a picture of it. I'm still learning to remember to take a photo of the cards and projects I make, but I did remember to take some photos of the presents I made.

 I altered a  notebook and covered it with card and ribbon and punched some butterflies and attached them down one side.

Next I covered a coaster with patterned paper, added a post it note pad, covered a binder clip and inserted some patterned into a pen and voila, a really nice present.

Also I covered some binder clips and popped them into a glassine bag. I didn't stop there though, next I decided to make a set of cards for her to give to others. I made 6 cards for her which were all embossed using cuttlebug embossing folders, which I thought they were quite simple but smart.

I gave my sister in law her present a couple of weeks ago as I wouldn't be seeing her again before her birthday and hopefully she will like them when she does open them.
