Made this stationery box to match the greeting card I had already done. Thanks to Dawn Griffith (card) and Maymay Helms (box) for videos.


Originally I made this 'box' card to include with my Healing Cards Class and used a stamp set called 'Beacon' from MaymayMadeIt. When Stampin' Up! released their Carols of Christmas holiday stamp set early, I wanted to showcase it at a recent class and I thought this card style would be perfect.

I found an idea for a Fold Flat Card online but the finished card was bigger than an A2 so I revamped it to fit a standard envelope and changed the technique for easier assembly. Using the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Card Front Builder Dies, I created several versions to showcase the 'frames.' I love that the flower/star frame can be used all year-round (here I just used a sticker). I included the Christmas card in this month's class and everyone loved it. It's difficult to stop making them, they're so easy! Leave a comment for free pictorial instructions.

My niece drinks Maxwell House Chai Latte and I noticed the lid of the container had an embossed coffee cup, so I asked for the empty containers and created this sweet little host gift, door prize, or craft sale item. Just add handmade (I used vellum) envelopes, note cards, decorated pen, ribbon, and a tag! The container is wrapped with a 2.5" x 12" piece of DSP that meets exactly (and matches!). I accented with red to coordinate with the red lid.
