Easily Create a Stampin’ Up! Simply Sent Gift Card Box!

By | 01/24/2013

The Simply Sent Kit that you can get for free during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration promotion from January to March 22 can be used as more than just a card set.  I used one of the cards to make a top for a gift card box.  I plan to create a set of cards for a friend and I always love to package them in a pretty way.  Here is a really simple idea!

simplysentboxWith the Simply Sent Kit, you get 8 cards and envelopes and some embellishments to decorate the cards.  I didn’t use the embellishments in the kit, I used the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Buttons.  All of these are choices you have for free items from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

To create my box, I used a piece of crumb cake card stock scored at 1-1/2″ and 7″ along the 8-1/2″ side.  I then scored it at 4-1/2 and 6-1/2″ on the 11″ side.  I snipped the center tabs to create the flaps and folded the box, sealing it with sticky tape.

Over the next few days I will be creating the cards to fill the box!  Make sure to stop back to see the cards for all occasions!

journalToday, I created my first page!  I wanted to share it with you.  I used scraps of papers that I had left from other projects.  I added two quotes that I find inspiring!
