Invite in a box

A novelty way to send out an invite, or a great way to store some great little thank notes.

I found this little box on the net, and thank Dawn very much for sharing her ideas. This is a very simple little box to put together and can be used for so many different occasions.

Cut your Card stock 5 1/4" wide, 9 1/2" long. Then score. Long side score at 1", 4 1/4", 5 3/4", and 8 1/2".
Score on the other side, 1" in on either edge. Fold in on all score lines and use your bone folder to make score marks crisp.
Along the long edges, cut in 1" on all fold lines. Add sticky strip to all 1" tabs to put box together.
Create the bottom of the box first.
Then decorate as desired.

This is my little box closed. Here are the products I used:-
Stamp sets - Choo Choo 116887, Right on Track 113838,
Family Phrases 116356, All in the Family 116334
Card Stock:- Green Galore, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Green Galore, Basic Black
Accessories: Sticky Strip, cutter and scorer, scissors, 1/2" circle punch

Box open with a invite inside.

For the invites I used the Love notes 111861. They come in packs of 20. Containing 10 each of whisper white and very vanilla. Both cards and envelopes.
Hope you enjoy making your own, for what ever occasion. Enjoy.

Happy Stamping
