A Notelet Box

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you a fabby little box which I made last saturday at The Stamp Pad with the talented Carol W. The box was made from some fabby brown Kraft card. The piece on the top of the box was embossed with an embossing folder and then ,atted onto black card stock. The box was made from just one sheet of A4 card stock.

Inside we made a smaller embossed piece and again mounted this onto black card stock. to go inside the lid of the box. I the base of the box we used a piece of A4 card, cut lengthways, then embossed. This was then scored to strenghten it and alo to provide dividers between the notelets and give an area to put a small pen or pencil, paperclips etc.

For the wrap around the notelets we again used the same card stock and embossed this using the same embossing folder. To attach it together and cover the join, we die cut the panel on the front from a Sizzix framelits die, here. The notelets were made from A4 cream linen card stock at 3.5" square. The toppers are just squares of Graphic 45 Kraft collection paper, matted onto black card stock.

I really enjoyed this workshop, it tested my brain :) and made me do things that I may not have done otherwise.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.
