Another Fun Stationery Box

Lately, I have been obsessed with making boxes and filling them with stationery.  I ordered a custom stamp for Sharon and made her her very own box of personalized stationery.  I'm hoping that because it's handmade, she'll forgive me for being so forgetting her birthday. 

(If you look closely at the box lid, you can see that I used my trusty drywall tape as an embellishment.)

Here's the inside.  I love the lid.

The lid's pocket holds 3" x 3" notecards and envelopes.

Here's a top view of the box and all of its goodies and compartments.

In addition to including Sharon's personalized name stamp inside the box, I also included three wine corks that I wrapped with hemp twine.  She can use the twine to attach the cards to packages.

Don't you just love these fun colors?  They are Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Lucky Limeade...all from Stampin' Up!  

TIP:  I used Mod Podge to apply the Designer Series Paper to the box.  It is much easier to use Designer Series Paper than it is to use heavy cardstock to cover the box.
