Anyway referring back to crafting...I found this neat tutorial for a stationary box. I had already created one that was pretty versatile because it held notepad, stamps, pencils and those type of things which was really cool, but this box was so very different I just had to give it a try.
If you check out the original tutorial you will see a neat twist to the box that I did not include on mine.
This photo shows the box laying down with a belly band to keep it closed. I added very little embellishments because when you open it, you want it to lay flat.
Here you can see the two pockets that will hold both envelopes and stationary. This would make a great gift.
I think you could add a set of cards with matching stationary and envelopes to make a really nice gift.
Additionally, if you check out Lyssa's added twist you will have a really cute stationary purse to give as a gift. Just think how cute that would be!
Lyssa Griffin is a wonderful demonstrator and has made her tutorials free. She has also made them real easy to follow with photos and clear instructions so check out her site. If you just want the tutorial for this Double Pocket Stationary box then just click the link.
Okay time to surf YouTube a bit more to see what else I can find. Have fun crafting.
