3x3 card box and cards

Last week just was not a very creative week for me. I guess that will happen from time to time. LOL But, I did manage to get two things done. Today I am sharing a set of cards and a box to store them in. The cards are 3x3- the perfect size for gift cards. I used Reece cardstock , Reece ribbon and some of the tags from the Reece Soar with it Collection , I like that you can get 3 cards from a 1/2 sheet of the card stock. I only used two stamp sets- Snowman Nativity and Curls and Swirls for the entire set. These darling little cards are an excellent way to use up some of your scraps.

The box is very easy to put together, I found the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers (SCS) last week. I did do a couple of things differently- I didn't make a scalloped edge on mine, and I used The Angel Company's paper collection for the lid. The designer paper from TAC is printed cardstock, so I didn't need to adhere designer paper to the cardstock lid. I will be making some more of these.
Today's Blessings~

Until later~
