Note Cards in a Box!
See special offer below for the first 10 people to place their order!
What a GREAT gift to give at the holidays or any time of year – a box filled with lovingly handcrafted, stamped note cards!! I used my empty Project Life card box and filled it up with cards and envelopes! And it's a great way to repurpose the box if you organize your Project Life cards in a different way (here is what I do).
You may remember THIS POST where I made a box of thank you cards for my niece as a shower gift, and I decided in honor of the BUY 3 GET 1 FREE designer series paper sale going on this month (Oct. 2016) I would recreate this project using some of the papers featured in this sale!
I have used my 2 favorite Stampin' Up! papers, the Floral Boutique Designer Paper pack (annual catalog, pg 172, #141663) and the Candy Cane Lane Christmas paper (Holiday catalog, pg 5, #141981) to decorate the box and make the note cards that go inside the boxes.
I used the Crumb Cake note card pack with the Candy Cane Lane paper – the crumb cake color is perfect! I decorated each note card with pieces from the Candy Cane Lane designer paper pack (each piece is 5" wide to match the cards, and varies in height from 1" to 2-1/2"), the Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape, the Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, and then embellished with the Christmas Joy or Merry & Bright stamps from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set (pg 34, #142182) die cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies (annual catalog pt 193, #141488).
These empty Project Life card boxes are a perfect fit for the Stampin' UP! Note Cards and Envelopes! See my special offer below to see how you can get one!
Each box will hold between 10 and 20 cards and envelopes, depending on how many embellishments you put on the cards.
I wrapped up the box with the beautiful Real Red 3/4" stitched edge ribbon and a piece of Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon. You can see ALL OF THE SUPPLIES for both of these projects at the bottom of this blog post.
I cut out 2 little houses from the Candy Cane Lane paper with my Paper Snips, and put them on top of an In Color Doily and a Delicate White Doily to dress up this box.
As you can see below, the box will fit between 10 and 20 cards with envelopes, depending on how many embellishments you put on your cards. With the thickness of these cards (ribbon, greeting on dimensionals), I would probably plan to include 10 of these cards + 10 envelopes max.
What you will need for each Note Card Box:
- Pack of Designer Series Paper (see paper on SALE through 10/31/16 here)
- Pack of Whisper White (#131527) or Crumb Cake (#133766) Note Cards with envelopes
- Project Life card box

I decorated this Project Life box with Floral Boutique Desiger paper and some 5/8" Organza White Ribbon, 1/8" silver ribbon and a die cut butterfly over a Silver Doily and a Delicate White Doily. The Butterfly Framelits are on page 194, #138135 and 137360 and are die cut with Night of Navy and Shimmery White cardstock. A Silver Enamel shape completes the butterfly.
