Because I Care Gift Set


My sister is coming to town in a few days and I made this set for her.  It is a gift box which contains four watercolor cards and envelopes. The box whips up in a jiffy. This is what the box looks like open:


... and here are one of the cards that go inside:


I hope my big sissy likes it! 

Tip of the day: If you are going to use a Stamp-A-Ma-jig, as I did for gift box, be sure not to use Stazon as it will not wash off. Use Basic Black for stamping on the vinyl sheet, and then Stazon for stamping on your project.

Many thanks to the extremely talented Kimberley Morris for allowing me to share her design. You can visit Kimberley's blog and get the pattern for making the box by clicking here.
