Share what you love - new bundle

I should call this "The Mindy Project" as my friend Mindy asked me to make a set of "easy, pretty cards in a box to give away" and this is it!  

The box is easy. To make the box
1.Cut the front flap 7 ¼ x 4 ½, score at 6 and 6 ¾
2.Cut the back flap 6 x 4 ½, no scoring
3.Cut the front box 2 ½ x 11, score ½ on the short side and on the long side score ¾, 5 ¼, 6, 10 ½
4.Emboss the front with the Lovely Floral folder, burnish the folds and then notch off the ends at the very top, just a tiny bit (this will be inside the box). See photo.
5.Make the box, cut out the ½ x ½ scored corner, then snip the tabs and notch the tabs (not the long pieces, just the short tabs).
6.Adhere the box to the back flap
7.Adhere the front flap to the back with tear n tape or liquid glue along the ½ piece
8.Tie about 24” of twine around the front, trim the ends.

The cards can be found in my post from May 3, Click here to see the details of the cards

We have a May team challenge, where I sent my team supplies from this bundle "Share what you love" including designer paper, ribbon and cardstock (of course all matching!) and they each got different paper.  The challenge was to create 2 cards and take a photo and send to me or post to my Facebook page.  

Here's 2 from Elaine

And 2 from Petra

Every card comes out so pretty with this lovely paper!! I'll be posting more creations with this bundle over the coming week.  And this paper works with just about any stamp set!

Don't forget if you buy the bundle Stampin Up gives you free items and I also send you a package of supplies with instructions to make up 3 cards and a box!!   I love free!

Happy stamping! MaryKate
