This is the "book box" card holder I made for each of the attendees at my March Card Extravaganza Day.
and the inside looks like this:
The ones I gave them held only the fourteen envelopes since they were at the Card Extravaganza Event to make the cards! There is a video below which will show the entire process.
I love books and yes, I still mean the real kind, the kind you can get cozy with for a good read. Somehow, the word "cozy" never comes to mind when I am on my computer or a Kindle. In true disclaimer, however, I don't own a Kindle so I am just imagining it!
Favorite books are like friends to me so I love this idea of giving a "book look" to my box.
These are really quick and easy to make! Look how many I made in two days! (Of course, I am a procrastinator.)
Doesn't that look like a stack of books? I made this many in just two days, but I wasn't finished yet. Over the next two days I made a bunch more so the total came to thirty-four!
Now what will I come up with for my May Extravaganza Day?
You will want to attend to find out! Its Saturday May 11 in Minnesota. Get on my list for more details.
Enjoy the video:
Now, didn't that look easy? You can see I used a lot of the Parkers Patterns Designer Series Paper!
Have fun with this idea for your gift giving! I think handmade cards are one of the best gifts to give since it is given twice – first to the person you gave them to and second to the person they sent it to! Everyone can use cards and everyone loves to receive something in the mail that is personal (and not a bill!).
….by the way….we can always make something like this box at a party too! Its your party, your way, so always let me know what you are interested in! Just email me with questions!
