More on the Big Box with Memories and More

 Lots of fun at Friday's class making these boxes.

While it's not at all a race we were all happy to see that making the box and 6-12 cards took us each about an hour and a half.  These really make nice gifts.

Here's the closed box.  I'd add a ribbon before giving it away.

I thought I'd show you a few of the cards. Each card uses a Memory and More card that is either 3 x 4 or 4 x 6 or the narrow card (card is cut 2 x 4).  These cards are sold in a packet all pre-cut pre-scored. So easy. Lovely rich thick paper.

Here are the medium cards.

A close up, I added some sprinkles, sequins and dazzling diamonds

And the big cards - I like the sayings.  A few of the other crafters picked the flowered backrounds and stamped on the cards.

I added the dazzling diamonds by making a 1/2 white glue and  1/2 water mixture and with my aquapainter, tapping the watery glue on the card in a fine mist and adding the dazzling diamonds.  It takes about 10 minutes to dry but it made the card pop.

The narrow cards are fun to make and I used some of the stickers.  

And I decorated one of the narrow envelopes. I think I might decorate all my envelopes. You get 70 cards in the box so lots of choices and supplies to make a lot. 

And the tags. Just one of the 4 x 6, cut into 3 pieces 2 x 4, tag topper punch. If there are words on the back, make a plain white tag and glue it together, then add ribbon.

What do you think?

I've created some kits for you to make.  You let me know know which Memory and More set you want and I send you supplies to make the box, 4 large, 4 medium, 4 narrow and the tags. Ribbons, embellishments are all in the kit.  This would be fun to make, Cost to you with shipping and tax is $45 (see yesterday's post) happy to answer questions.  

happy stamping, MaryKate
