Stationary Box

 I got the pattern for this box from Becky Robert's and the instructions were great! I can't/won't give the directions as she is selling the plans for this project. I got  bunch of stuff off of the Clearance Rack, including the DSP and ribbon on this box. I debated even posting this project because of that, but we all have stuff in our stash we need to use up, so we can buy new stuff, right?!
This box even has a little pocket to put postage stamps in so everything is right on hand. My original plan with this was to make several pink cards to put in this and give to someone.The pink was to be in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but I didn't make enough pink cards that I didn't end up using myself in October!

On the front I added some embossed paper that I also sponged with Frost White Shimmer Paint. I really love this stuff. I still use it a ton, and I am on my second bottle of the Champagne Mist! I have extras of the other 2 for when I run out of them. I think I will still fill this with cards and either sell it, or give it to one of my club ladies as a Christmas gift.
  • Stamps: NONE
  • Paper: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Sending Love DSP
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip
  • Other: Big Shot with Finial Press embossing folder, Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Sponge Dauber, Eyelet border punch, paper cutter with scoring blade, SNAIL, Sticky Strip
