Hi, everyone! It's Kelli and today I have a Valentine's Day / Love notecard boxed set to share with you! I used the adorable Love 'n Breakfast set by Lawn Fawn and stamped everything in Memento - Tuxedo Black Ink. I can't get enough of these cute little guys! I made 6 cards, all are 3"x3". I just chose different images and sentiments that went together.
Here is the box of cards all packaged up.
To make the bottom of the box, you'll first want to stamp your design before you score, cut and fold. It's a lot easier that way. This is the inside of the bottom so my polka dots are on the back.
The measurements are a little weird, but after some testing I found that these fit the best.
Here are the card stock measurements for the box:
Top: 4 3/16" x 4 3/16" - scored at 1/2" on all four sides
Bottom: 4 5/8" x 4 5/8" - scored at 3/4" on all four sides
Here you can see where you're supposed to make cuts (do this on both the top and bottom pieces). You will just fold those little tabs in and glue them to form both the pieces (separately). I cut a little angle on both sides of all the tabs because it helps give a cleaner finished product.
Here's a side view of the completed set wrapped in Cherry - Diving Baker's Twine.
For the top of the box I used some leftover plastic packaging, but you could definitely use a transparency or window sheet. It's a little harder to score and fold, but the look is totally worth it. I love being able to see through the box! Since I knew the areas where I glued would be visible, I opted for glue dots because they are perfectly round and would give the cleanest look. At this very moment it just occurred to me that I could have adjusted the measurements to make the clear top slide INSIDE the red bottom! That would be an even cleaner look. So, if you wanted to adjust the measurements you could make it so the clear piece slips inside the red instead of over it. I'll have to try that next time! :)
Here are the 6 cards that I put in the box. I added some Glossy Accents to parts of the images on each card to add a little something extra since these are all one layer.
First we have, 'you're egg-cellent' and 'we go together' (like peanut butter and jelly). The 2 pieces of bread don't come with the peanut butter and jelly outlines, I drew them on, but it was super easy. Just outline a squiggly circle and then color it in. The two little pieces of bread go best with the 'popping up to say' sentiment and the little toaster image in the set! I think they make cute peanut butter and jelly guys though! :)
egg: YR15, Y35, Y15, N0 for white shading
bacon: R27 over E23, I didn't have any deeper bacon colored reds.
bread: E21 and E51
crust and peanut butter: E25 and E23
jelly: V15 and V12
bow: R27, R24 and R22
Next we have 'we go together' (like salt and pepper) and 'you're my stud-muffin'!
salt: C3, C1 and B21, B0000 for lid,
pepper: C5, C3 and B21, B0000 for lid, R27, R24 and R22 for bow
muffin: E27, E25, E23 for muffin top, R29, R27, R24 and R22 for bottom
Last but not least, 'you're my' (cup of tea) and 'i love you'!
teacup: V15, V12 and E25 and E23 for tea inside
hearts: R29, R27, R24 and R22
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
