Gift box of cards

This is my new favourite project - a little box containing five square cards. I'm enjoying making them so much that I'm going to hold an eScape class over the summer to make one. So if you're interested, please get in touch.

The box is really simple and can be made out of one sheet of A4 cardstock. You can make a lid, like on this example, or simply attach a strip of cardstock or some ribbon to make a handle. They're really easy and fun to make.

There are only three cards in the picture because, in the interests of saving time, I duplicated two of them.

Stamps: Three For You Punch Box (p80), Doodle That (p55), Basic Phrases (p65)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Naturals Ivory, Whisper White
Paper: Designer Series Paper – Fall Flowers (p72)
Ink: Old Olive, StazOn®
Accessories: Three For You punch (p80), Scallop Circle Punch (p80), 3/8” Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive, (p86) ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Very Vanilla (p86), Brads – Rich Regals® (p85), blender pen (p81), office staple

This set is a birthday gift so I made this co-ordinating birthday card using some of the same supplies. I even remembered to stamp the envelope!
