Stationery Box

hope you are ready for a big post, and a lot of pics. i think this is my biggest project ever. this is my last project for Kim's papercrafting kit of the Andrea Victoria paper.
i found this wonderful, easy to follow tutorial on how to make this stationery box on and here is a link to some other great ideas.

my lid is just a little different from the tutorial, i used PTI smoky cardstock, and then layered the patterned paper on it. i then cut out one of the flowers and pasted it to one of the die cuts from the AVictoria accessory sheet and adhered it to the underside of the lid. in order to do this, i had to think ahead and make sure my patterned paper had the flower centered on the lid. (really, i think it happened by accident, a really happy accident!)

once you remove the lid, the front of the box unfolds to reveal all the goodies inside. i used a JustRite font set to do my labeling, and the SU window punch.

these cards are 3x3, and the tags are from the accessory sheet.

again, the damask image is from the accessory sheet, and the "thanks" is A Muse.

i love the line of gems. these were easier to adhere than i thought they would be.

this patterned paper is from the cover sheet of the kit, you know, the sheet in front of all the paper that lets you know what is in the package.

and last but not least, i think this is my fav card in the set. it is just patterned paper, with an amber gem, and black pearls added, and then an A Muse stamped sentiment. easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
