Pocketful of Greetings

Carolyn requested a box for some 3 1/2" x 5" cards she had created for a friend. She told me I could create what ever I wanted as long as it fit 8 cards and envelopes. Here is the box I created for her:

Here is the box with the flap opened:

Now that it's done, I don't like the scrap of patterned paper that I put on the loop for the tab. It works well in the pictures so you can see it but in person it's not quite to my liking.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  1. Pretty box, Jen. Such a nice way to gift those cards. I think you're right about that paper.
    The paper you used for the box itself reminds me of a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
    Thanks for sharing the file.
    Enjoy the Olympics!

  12. This is so awesome! I would love the file for the card box if you wouldn't mind. I was actually just recently looking in stores to see if I could buy something to give cards away in (rather than a manilla envelope). This would be so much better as I could decorate to "match" the cards or personalize for the person I am giving cards to. Thank you for your hard work - such great ideas!!!
