"Stationary Box"


I decided to give one of these stationary boxes a try the other day. OMG!! They are super easy. I was shocked actually cause it doesn't look like it would be as simple as the directions said it was. Forgive me but this one isn't completely finished but I needed something to post today and I thought this would be good. The only thing I need to do is finish three more cards and make some tags or card candy to put in the front pockets, add a book of stamps and label my address book. I think I will make up greetings for the cards and put them in one of the pockets so that when you want to use a card you can pick your greeting and just adhere it on.

The directions can be found here. I used a 12 x 12 piece of card stock for the box and a 12 x 12 piece of pattern paper for the lid, address book, pen holder, stamp pocket and for pieces on the cards. I also bought three 12 x 12 pieces of cardstock for the cards. Rust, dark brown, and the celery color.

Aren't those fun? I loved making them! And they are easier than they look. The contents seem to take forever but the box is easy enough!

I love your box. Great Job!!!

I've been wanting to make a box, like yours. You are the um-teenth stamper to say, "It's easy to make."

Looks like I'll be making this box.

Thanks for sharing -
