Here's the Stationery Box that I made for Merrylene.....



back in May for her birthday. I got all my ideas for this project here! This next photo shows the box opened up. As you can see, I made a few changes, such adding an Address Book, a Note Pad and some Mailing Labels. I also glued the inner flap and added a decorative border.


Here are closeups of the Address Book and the inner pages of it and the Note Pad. I designed the inner pages using Photoshop and then did a "Print and Cut" using my Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter".



And here are close-up photos of the six cards that I included with the box.



This project was fun, but it was also a lot of work, but it was worth it to be able to give it to Merrylene as a gift. By the way, she loved it!!!

Wow, how funny, I actually was going to take the class from Danny (I ended up sick on the day of the class but my friend picked up the kit for me)! I liked it so much that I designed a knk cutter file for it so I have a file that will digitally cut all of the box if anyone wants it just email me at patricia@papertemptress.com
