I really love this project. Unfortunately, I completely forgot to photograph the process of making the box, but it is relatively simple.
Trim colored cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 (that is an 8 1/2 x 11 cut in half short-ways) and score at 4 1/4 to create cards. Stamp snowflakes and sentiment onto cards with matching ink to create tone-on-tone effect.
Trim and score four pieces of white cardstock to create envelopes (A2) using scor-envi attachment. See how the Scor-envi has all the measurements right on the front? It’s so easy to look at the chart for your card size and then quickly trim your paper and make your diagonal score marks! The envelopes come out perfect every time! (Finished size of envelopes: 4 3/8 x 5 3/4. Image Via Scor-pal)
Stamp “Happy Holidays” with card-coordinating ink. Stamps from “Just Add Snow” set from Hampton Art. I used the 1/4” Scor-tape to secure my envelopes because it is so strong and thin – it’s perfect for making envelopes, among other things!
Use 8 ½ x 11 cardstock to create stationary box. Trim diamond patterned cardstock to create front flap and attach to box.
(This is definitely the part I should have taken pictures of, but honestly, when I make boxes like this I hardly every have a template – I just make it up. BUT over on the Scor-pal blog there is a little stationary set almost exactly like mine, with a box made almost exactly like mine! Totally didn’t know that was going to happen, but the benefit is that I can direct you to that post at the bottom of my post! So, just keep scrolling and checking out my project and I’ll direct you over to the tutorial at the end!)
Attach ribbon to create closure. I concealed the flap-side ribbon with another piece of the diamond patterned cardstock. It gives a nice finished look and your ribbon looks really professional!
Stamp three snowflakes, fussy cut, and layer on box. Adhere jewel.
This stationary set would be perfect to give as a hostess gift on Thanksgiving – that way your hostess has holiday cards all ready if she wants to make them out the day after Thanksgiving!
I love how it all looks together – so modern and cute with all the bright colors! I hope you take out your Hampton Art winter stamps and your Scor-pal and get busy on this!
