THANK YOU GIFT BOX

I think I mentioned before that I was trying my hand at teaching?  Well, I had my first class last month and I think it went alright.  I have another class coming up in a couple of weeks and this is what I came up with.  There are TONS of pics in this post so grab your favorite beverage, kick back and relax!

The thank you cards are 4" square, the lined envelopes are 4 1/4" square and the matching box is 4 1/2" square x 2" high.  I showed this project to a few of my friends and they all seemed to like it.  My fingers are crossed the class will too!

As soon as I saw the Growing Gratitude set from Our Craft Lounge, I immediately wanted to make a gift box with it.

Copic coloring:

Flower Pot:  BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000  Flower:  R01, R00, R000  Leaves:  BG99, BG96, BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000

This stamp set is perfect for note cards!  All of the cards are exactly the same, inside and out, for the exception of the flowers.

You'll also find OCL's Whispy Patterns throughout the project.  It's a background set that has five different patterns.  I can't wait to use some of the other ones.  They have been out for a while, but they are new to me.  Love them both! 

Copic coloring:

Flower Pot:  BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000  Flower:  T1, B93, B91  Leaves:  BG99, BG96, BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000

This project was made by stamping/masking the flowers and flower pots with Memento ink on Neenah that was cut using a Spellbinders die.  Then they were colored with Copic markers.  Two more layers were cut out of Bazzill card stocks with Spellbinders dies then adhered together.  The Neenah layer was popped up on Foam Squares.
Copic coloring:

Flower Pot:  BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000  Flower:  Y00, Y000, Y0000  Stems:  BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000
All of the green background paper was made by stamping the background stamp with VersaMark Dazzle Champagne on Bazzill's Sage Classic card stock.  This was done throughout the project.  An EK Success border punch was used for the purple layer.  The layers were assembled and a bow with a rhinestone completes the card.
Copic coloring:

Flower Pot:  BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000  Flower:  RV00, R000, R0000  Leaves:  BG99, BG96, BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000





The box is pretty basic to build.  It's an 8 1/2" square that is scored at 2" on all sides.  Cut four of the score lines until they intersect then cut a "V" to make it lay right when assembled.  The lid is 6 5/8" square scored at 1" on all sides.  It was assembled just like the box and decorated to match the note cards.  The exception was it uses the watering can instead of the flower pot.
Copic coloring:

Watering Can:  R01, R00, R000  Flower:  BV01, BV00, BV000  Leaves:  BG99, BG96, BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000


The inside of the cards and lined envelopes tie the whole project together.  The envelope template is from Valerie Stangle and the lined envelopes are by Gina K Designs.

Copic coloring:

Flowers:  BV00, Y00  Leaves:  BG93  Shadow:  C4, C3, C2, C1  Sky:  B01, B00, B000, B0000
