Patterned Paper Gift Box Set

Good Morning Friends! I have a boxed gift set today to share with you.  I edited all these pictures last night and then added a watermark and it appears I did not save it properly.  ACK!  So please forgive my unedited pictures.  I have two sets of cards and because of the pictures I will share the second set and second box tomorrow.  I also have some basic instructions on how to make the box.  I created it myself although I am sure there are similar things out there on the web.

Both boxes are pictured above.   I made the yellow one first and then refined some things with the orange one.  All the patterned paper is from the WeRMemory Keepers White Out collection.  Its really old.  I know this because the price tag was on the back of the chipboard stickers and its from a scrapbook store that went out of business at least two years ago, if not more.

I have always loved that paper and I am so glad I got a chance to use up a ton of it here.  The box is made from 12x12 bazzill cardstock.  The tag uses the PTI tag sale die.  Ribbon and inks are from PTI.

Inside the box.  Its quite roomy.  The lid is nice and tall.  One refinement on the new box is an inner rim to facilitate opening and closing the box.  I will point that out tomorrow.

Card one:  Lots of patterned paper, ribbon and a cardstock sticker.  The CS stickers all had really stupid things printed on them.  So I covered the words with paper and stamped my own sentiments!  I used Fillable Frames, Framed Out and Across the Miles.

Same idea different embellies.

Same idea here as well.  You can also see the envelopes I made to coordinate.

Close up of the cardstock sticker.  I added the banner across to change out the lame sentiment to make it a thank you card. 

Tomorrow I will be back with the other box, the rest of the cards, and a few tips on how to make the box if you are interested.  This was a great way to burn through my 12x12 stash.

Adorable boxes of cards. Yes, great way to use up 12x12 paper (which I have tons of). OK, I'll be back tomorrow for your "how to" on your boxes.
