Hello Everyone! Yea!! the weekend has finally arrived and although it feels like Spring took a nap and Winter sneaked back in I am still glad the weekend is here.  Lately I've been doing a lot of YouTube surfing and finding some of the most hilarious things (not crafting).  I can't tell you how much I have laughed these past few days.

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.

  I want to share this with you so although it is a demo, I'm going to share with you what I came up with and at the end I've included a link to where I found this tutorial.

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.

Keep in mind, that this is my demo/practice that I created so I didn't use my strongest CS paper and it took a while for me to find scraps of DP big enough to cover most of the box.

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.

Thanks for stopping by
