You’re My Tweetheart…
This is another work that took me forever to finish. Of course, I’ve been working on other things around it. It’s definitely a labor of love. This is my first time making any kind of box like this. I saw the instructions here at Dannie’s Designs and saved it away to do later. Here’s a close up of the image by Paper Pretties that can be found here.
A couple of subtle differences are that I did the birds on the front, that I used a punch on the back edges and that I made a front pocket for return labels and stamps instead of the address book, pocket for stamps and pen that Dannie did.
The tags were made with my Cricut using the “Tags, Bags, Boxes and More” cartridge. The post-it notes were purchased at Wal-Mart. In the front pocket I’ve made labels with my friend’s return address for anything she might want to mail out.
Here are the cards I made. I began by hand-embossing the white card stock. The stamps are from the $1 bin at Michaels, and I’ve used my Nestibilities to cut the flower and background. I’ve made eight cards, with different sentiments for every two cards. A long while back Michaels offered the monogram stamps and I purchased them to use like I did on the envelope.
There are two different designs inside the cards, one set has the oval on the left and
the other set has the rectangle. This is not a difficult project to make, just time consuming. One of the nice things I like about this is that once she uses the cards I made (my hubby said she wouldn’t) she can put store bought cards in the box.
