What to do with extra cards

Last month I had a few thank you cards left over. I tend to make them in batches, (in fact I now take them to work with me in a small box and sit in the coffee house at lunchtime and work on them Smile, it’s a great break from the day job) and I ended up with four spares this time round. So what should I do with them?

If you remember, this was the card I made. As it just says Hello on the front, I thought they might make a cute set of notelets and so decided to make a little matching gift box to package them in.

Recipe
Stamp set: Elementary Elegance (W125120 or C125122), Fresh Vintage (W125115 or C125117) (Free Sale-a-bration sets)
Cardstock: Soft Suede (119982), Calypso Coral (124392), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Soft Suede (115657), Calypso Coral (122939)
Punches: Corner Rounder (119871), Curly Label (119851), 1-1/4″ Circle (119861)
Other: Basic Rhinestones (119246)
Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049)

The box was made following the Mini Pizza Box tutorial here and I made it 10.5cm square, with sides 2cm deep, to fit the notelets and envelopes into. The only things different to the actual card, are:

  • the side and front panels were stamped with the Fresh Vintage border in Soft Suede ink onto Calypso Coral card;
  • the lid was matted with a larger piece of Very Vanilla card which served for the sentiment and as a frame around the aperture layer; and
  • rhinestones were added to the crown at the top of each frame.

Here’s the box open to show the cards inside.

I’ve actually used this today as a door prize but it would make a sweet and inexpensive little gift for Mother’s Day (this Sunday!).

Thanks for stopping by.
