Stationery Box

I received one of these wonderful Stationery Box for my birthday, full with wonderful cards, notes and tags. One of my very talented Stamp Club members, Jo, made it for me. I was so delighted with it, and at how beautiful it was, I decided to finally have a go myself.

This is a flower that I made myself , here is the link, so you can make one also. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/dimensionalflowers/

This is a pretty decoration for the front.


This is the flower on the inside of the box.  This one is a lot smaller.



These are the tags for inside the box



Four little love notes and envelopes.



Four cards, all made from a couple of pieces of DSP from Stampin' Up!


The Stationery Box open



Close up of the Address Book, Stamps and little flower.



The lot altogether.

Closed Box.


You can find this tutorial from Amy Celona website  www.ustamp4fun.com

This tutorial is made from USA size papers and a little small for Aussie envelopes and cards.

Adjustments I made, after I made the box.  When you download from Amy's site the adjustments will make sense.(Score at 5" & 7" on one side, 2 3/4" & 9 1/4" on the other score bottom at 3/4" 7 11 1/4")

I would like to thank Jo so very much for her beautiful gift and the inspiration to make my own. My Mother and Mother-in-law both received one of these for Mothers Day.

Have a go now and you will be very happy with the end result.

Happy Stampin' Cheryl
