*** A Stationary Set

Hi there! Hope your weekend has been wonderful. Here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving Day tomorrow so we get an extra day off from work. I love long weekends!
I'd like to share with you a Stationary Set I made using this tutorial from SCS , it took a bit of time [an afternoon] but I think it was well worth it and I think I will attempt another, maybe using some Christmas Papers.
 
 
The box has a removable top that allows the front of the box to fall open.

 
Inside the box holds 3 cards with matching envelopes, 3 - 3x3 gift cards, 3 tags, an address book, a place for stamps and a pen. I think this would make a lovely birthday gift.  

 
I used only 2 full pieces of paper [12x12], {1 cardstock & 1 DP}. The rest are just scraps from the leftover box. Heavy paper is a must. I used an assortment of dies, ribbon, buttons, punches and rubber stamps to embellish and decorate the box. The cards feature a free digital image by A Day For Daisies.
I know it probably looks like this was hard to do but in all actuality it was quite easy, just a lot of pieces to cut, score and adhere. Like I said I will definitely be making a few more of these because I am so pleased with the outcome.
Well that's it for today.
Hugs to all,
Nancy

WOW - Nancy, this is gorgeous! What a project. I think I might be tempted to have a go at this one too- it may be out of my league, but no gain without pain! LOVE your stationary kit - and many thanks for joining our challenge at CWD to make a box with card (3) set.
