I was hoping to share the tutorial on the Gift Bag that I created here...which I have named "The Perfect Gift Bag/Box" since I think it's perfect for holding a ton of cards and many other gift options. I have taken the step by step pictures, but I don't have to time to edit and write the post...we are leaving for Daytona Beach to celebrate the 4th of July weekend! Scott has to work some events surrounding the Coke Zero 400 race so the kids and I get to spend a few days on the beach :-)
Anyway, here is a "box" version of "The Perfect Gift Box"....
Click on the pictures for a larger view.
A friend of mine asked me to make her a set of cards to give to a friend. I originally posted the pink version of the card here (the set includes 5 pink cards and 5 green cards).
This box easily holds 10 cards (with "puffy" embellishments...the monogram and flower come out at least 1/4" on the card) and 11 matching envelopes (I always include an extra envelope in my card sets...just in case).
You can see in the picture above that there is plenty of room in the box still. The box actually measures 7" tall, 5" wide, and 3" deep. It requires 2 pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock for the box base and a little less than 12"x12" of Designer Paper to cover (you can also stamp on the box instead of adding DP).
We will be gone until Sunday night. So I will have to finish writing the post when we get home and upload it to my blog on Monday. In the mean time, I have a few projects scheduled to post while I am gone including the next High Hopes Challenge on Sunday.
Edited to add...here is the tutorial.
Thanks for Stopping by! Happy Stamping!
