Sketch Challenge and Stationery Box

I am entering another challenge this week over at Riley and Co. This is my finished card using Coffee Riley.


This is the sketch to work from:


I think it turned out very well and is going to a friend as part of a card order. I made the flower, too.

I was also looking for a box to hold finished cards. I found several for A4 size but haven't found what I'm looking for to hold the bigger cards yet. I found this video on YouTube (it's a 2 part) that shows how to make a really cute box so I tried it out this morning.

Here is my version of it. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet - maybe make some smaller cards to fill it! LOL!



I also ended up finding the whole PDF of instructions so that will be helpful if I decide to do this box again. Now that I've done it once, the repeats should go pretty fast. Plus, the printed instructions include some other items for the box that would really make it a nice gift. You can't see it, but the inside of the box is stamped with little flowers.

I love the little Riley Coffee card, and that card box came out really well. I love the colour of it. You are very talented Teresa.

That little box is fabulous and filled with a bunch of your handmade small cards [perhaps thank you cards or a mix of cards] would be the most awesome gift for a family member at Christmas.

That box is amazing.
