Updated Square Box with cards

square box 2010

An updated sample of my Square Box with cards class.  The box holds 8 matching cards.  I used the Sweet Pea DSP and the Happy Moments and Vintage Labels sets that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  Cardstock colors are Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip.  I also use the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder and the FREE Scallop Trim border punch.

Two sets of boxes can be made from just one sheet of DSP and some additional supplies.  Instructions can be downloaded here.

Top Note box with Drawers

Happy Valentine's Day!!  

I know the colors aren't very Valentiney (Is that a word?) but wouldn't you just love to get some jewelry, candy or other little treats in this box?

It's  made using the Top Note and Matchbox Dies.  I used the Tea Party DSP, Filigree brads and Ice Circle Rhinestone brads.  Oh, the embellishment on top is made with the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies die for the Big Shot.

Top Note “Pizza” box

Perfect for giving a gift card or any other small gift.  The "pizza box" style holder is made using the Top Note die for the top and bottom.  I used a 5-1/2" x 8" piece of cardstock scored at 1, 3-1/2, 4-1/2 and 7" on the long edge and 1 and 4-1/2" on the short side.

I made the patchwork on the center sample using the Tea Party DSP and the 1-3/8" square punch.  I glued the pieces on to a piece of coordinating cardstock and the sent it through the Big Shot using theTop Note die.

I used the Pink Flamingo DSP for the sample on the right and the Daisies #2 die for the flower embellishment using Pretty in Pink and Read Red cardstock.  Finished it off with our beautiful Fire Rhinestone brad.

Welcome Neighbor hostess gift

Welcome home DSP notecards

A cute and very simple hostess gift made with the Welcome Neighbor DSP that you can get for free during Sale-a-bration. Minimal stamping with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and Word Window/Modern Label punches complete the cards.  In case you can't tell they are 3"x3" and I've put 6 cards and envelopes in our  medium flat cello bag.

Gift Carrier with Box #2

double box #2

Aren't these gift/treatholders too cute?!!  I made them by using two of the Sizzix Box #2 dies.   The DSP is called Tea Party and the cardstock is Certainly Celery.  The flower on the box in front is made with a SU! exclusive Sizzlet die and Bigz die.

Updated Purse Bag with Cards


I've created an updated sample of my pursebag with 6 matching notecards.  I used the Cottage Wall DSP and a couple of the new FREE Sale-a-bration stamp sets and punch. The accent cardstocks are Orchid Opulence Rich Razzleberry.  Instructions can be downloaded here.

Another Milk Carton Holder

I just love this project so had to make another!

4/1 update: The instructions are now posted in the Instruction Tab above or click here.

Updated Circle Bag w/cards

Decided to make an updated sample of my Circle Bag w/ matching cards.  I used the new Sweet Pea DSP (from the Occasions mini catalog) and the Happy Moments set that you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration.  You can make the bag and matching cards with just one sheet of DSP (Designer Series Paper) and some additional coordinating cardstock (I used Old Olive and Taken with Teal) and some other embellishments.  Oh, and I used the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder-I LOVE that folder!

I changed the cutting dimensions for the cards on this particular version so I could make 8 cards and envelopes with matching paper on the flaps but you can download the original instruction sheet here. 

Milk Carton Holder
