Gift box and Card in one!

Like so many times, I started out with one idea and ended up with a completely different one. I thought this would be great with the Tea Shoppe stamp set (125545) and flavored teas in the boxes, but mine is on order so didn't want to wait! I think Language of Friendship (122750) worked just fine. I used Whisper White, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry cardstock, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry ink, and Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon (this is now retired, but we have it in the stitched , #126876).

DIRECTIONS: Create four matchbox (HINT: use a small piece of tape on the sides to hold together while forming the box) and attach them to a 5 1/2 " cardstock base with Sticky Strip (104294). I also used the corner rounder on the base (119275).

For the drawer pulls, I inserted eyelets, cut a 5" piece of Rich Razzleberry ribbon, tied it in half and inserted the two ends from the inside of the eyelet to the outside,pulling through to the knot and trimmed the ends at an angle.

Cut the top from the Rich Razzleberry cardstock, the same as the base and attach to boxes with Sticky Strip. Create the Triple Stamp (see earlier post) on Whisper White cardstock, 5"; 3 3/4"; and 2 3/4"squares. From Rich Razzleberry cut 4" and 3" squares. (Next time I will also round these corners.) and add to the top of the "box". The bow is actually just the ribbon wrapped back and forth onto a white mini brad (119736), and using a glue dot (103683) to attach to the "card".

I hope you enjoyed todays project and will give it a try. It really is easy and looks so nice. Have a great day!
