4 x 4 Box Note Cards with Box
Yesterday I was needing a break from all the Holiday designs so I grabbed these adorable piggies from the This Little Piggy stamp set #143922 and decided to try out a fun 4 x 4 note card set idea that my upline shared with us.
These are so adorable right? I just love how they turned out. So here's a little about what I did. For the cards I started with a base of 4 x 8 in Crumb Cake cardstock. I then cut some 3.75 x 3.75 squares of the Wood Textures DSP stack. (I used four different prints here).
Once I had those worked out I stamped up my images and colored them in with the Stampin' Blends. ( I cannot express enough how much I LOVE these markers).
After I had them all colored in I cut them out with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes framelits. #145372 I then added in some trim like the Smokey Slate Gingham ribbon #144231 and some Whisper White Bakers Twine #124262. Super Cute right?
I then decided to make a cute little box to put the cards in. This was just a basic box pattern I will do my best to explain it. I started with 2 squares of 7 x 7 in cardstock. I used Pink Pirouette for the bottom and Crumb Cake for the top. Actually the Crumb Cake was more like 7 1/16 x 7 1/16 you want to make the top just a smidgen bigger than the bottom. (it fits together better that way). I then used my Simply Scored board and scored each side at 1 in. Now in hindsight I should have used 1 1/2 in but it still worked out ok. So I scored them on all four sides. Then snipped the ends to be able to fold the box up and glue it together. (yep I scored the top and bottom at 1 inch even though there's a smidgen difference in their size. It makes it come out perfect I swear! I then added a panel of the Wood Textures DSP to the front and then colored and cut out another Piggy. For the tag I used the Merry Little Labels set # 144795 and stamped my Just For You on a scrap of wood textures dsp and punched it out with the Everyday Label punch #144668 I glued that down and punched a couple small holes in the very top side of the box to thread my ribbon through and tied a nice bow.
Super cute gift. It can be made with a variety of stamp sets. Doesn't have to be just the Piggies. The Half Full set would work well as well as many others. Get Creative.
