Secret Garden Boxed Note Card Set

- I love this little project!

Hello Blog Friends!

Today I'm sharing with you a cute little box I made to go with 6 little 3 1/2" x 5" all purpose note cards. A perfect gift to give. And when the cards are all used up the receiver still has a darling box to use for something. You want to see it?


You can just barely see the score lines on the lid of the box. I wanted it to curve easily and make it look a little like a roll top desk since it houses cards.

 OK, that's the frontal view. Now lets look at other angles so you can get a better idea of what it looks like.


You can see my love for making and adding tassels, lol.


There is also my like for the little chipboard tags I make, or Charms as I like to call them because they are usually small and hanging off of something. See the little round wood beads used for legs?


And here you can begin to see some of the fussy cutting I did with scraps. I layered them around the box, and as you can see had them go around the corners of the box.



OK, now let me show you what it looks like as you open the box.






And, here are the cards displayed. They are all the same and simple so that we could have the time needed to create the box in class.


Hope you didn't mind going through all these photos. I also have a short little video for you if your interested in viewing that as well.





Thank you for stopping by. Happy papercrafting everyone!
