3x6 Greeting Card Storage Box

3x6 greeting cards are so uniquely sized.
When you give one of these cards,
people just know
you've given them something special.
Then when they see the card is handmade,
they FEEL even more special.

I love making these cards
but find it difficult to storage units
appropriately sized for giving.
Here's what I came up with...

The base measures 8-1/2 x 10
and is scored at 3-1/2 and 5
(short side to the top of the cutter,)
turned and scored at 1-1/2 snf 8-1/2
(long side to the top of the cutter.)

The lid measures 4-1/4 x 9-1/2
and is scored at 1-1/4 and 3
(short side to the top of the cutter,)
turned and scored at 1-1/4 and 8-1/4
(long side to the top of the cutter.)

There is a trick to creating the scallop edge
on the lid of the box.
And if you'd like to learn this very easy tip,
email to schedule a party.
It will be so much more fun
for me to show you and your guests
at your Stampin' Up! party!
You will just love how fun and easy it is!

12-15 greeting cards fit nicely inside this long box,
depending on how embellished the cards are.
Don't you just love this stamp set?
You can find it in the new
Summer Mini Catalog
(find a link to the catalog in the right side bar)
(or click on "Summer Mini Catalog.")
This set is called "Flower Fest"
and every image in the set
coordinates with a matching punch.
How fun is that?!
Come to Stamp Club this month
and use this set and the punches for FREE!
