Today, I am going to share with you how you can make the cute box to finish off this great gift set.  And don’t forget, if you leave me a comment about this project, you could win one of these boxed card sets!  On Monday, June 2nd, I will do a drawing to see who will get to have one of these adorable card boxes of their very own!

This project is a great one to store away for future reference.  With a few math calculations, the dimensions can be adjusted to fit a wide variety of card sizes.  These boxed card sets make wonderful gifts for any occasion.  With a few tweaks, you could change them to match any season or purpose.  They are quick and easy to create using any color combination.  On Sunday, I will share another project I made by adjusting the size of this box so you can see exactly what I mean.  If you are a fan of this project, please pin it to Pinterest.  You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of this post below the supply list and cards stock cuts.  Also, if you like my work, why not subscribe to my blog via email.  All you have to do is click on “follow” in the sidebar.

    • This would be a perfect way to showcase some new DSP from the new catalog! I used it to use up my leftover paper before it retired, but I think I might do a class in the near future that uses this project with new colors, papers, ribbon, and embellishments.


  4. This set is so classy looking! I give cards to my mom to send to friends and have never made a box for her to keep them in. I think she would love to receive her cards in a cute little box like this one. Thank you for the inspiration and instructions!


  5. I love this whole project. Not so secretly hoping I win the drawing:) Your video demos are great too. Simple and easy to follow. You’re the best!
