Stationary Box for My Sister-In-Law's Birthday



My sister-in-law, Debby, is such a sweetheart! When she sees anything to do with paper crafting she thinks of me. My husband was at their house one day and she sent a 300-page package of card stock. Since her birthday was coming up, it was perfect timing to use the gift to make a gift! This is the stationary box I made for her. I made sure that at least one part of the card was paper that came from the package she bought me. I made eight greeting cards, four note cards and four gift tags to put in the box. The directions called for a place for a small address book, pen and postage stamps. By the time I made all of the cards I did, the box would have really bulged with all of those things in there, so I skipped them.

Debby said she loved it (I hope she did - I mean what else does someone say when you give them a gift!). She sent me a thank you card from the set I made her. That was the first time I received a card from someone that I had made!
To give credit where credit it due, I watched a You Tube video done by by Danni Graves who can be found at DanniGraves.typepad.com. Then I was luck enough to find written directions with a supply list and measurements for cutting and scoring lines on the Cricut Message Board that Jackie Topa had written and shared.
