Nevermore Gift Card Set

I will be participating in my first Craft Fair next month so I have been busy working on items to sell.  I was looking through my pins on Pinterest and found two things which inspired me.  I found a card designed by Aaron Barron which combined Nevermore with the Paper Garden stamp set you can see it here.  I also found a Book Box which looked intriguing so I decided to give it a try.  Here is what I designed.

Nevermore Gift Card Box ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is the cover and what the cards look like I used Eggplant as the base cardstock.  On the cover I used four flowers where the cards only have two.  I used a retired embellishment for the center of the flower.

When you open the cover, which I secured with hook and loops there is a pocket which holds four 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ cards and envelopes.  Nevermore Gift Card Set open ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is another view.  I really love the way this card and box turned out.  I actually designed a second one using a different stamp and paper, I will post it in a couple of days.

I thought I would share with you how to create this Book Style Card Box.  You will need two pieces ~ a 8 1/2″ x 11″ and a 3 ” x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock.  Starting with the 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock.Book Style Gift Box how-to #1 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThenBook Style Gift Box how-to #2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comNow with the 3′ X 8 1/2″  score as follows.Book Style Card Box how-to #3 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThen trim away these sections:Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #4 ~ CatScrapbooking.comBook Style Card Gift Box how-to #5 ~ CatScrapbooking.comAdd adhesive to secure the two pieces to make the box I used Scor Tape.Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #6 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThese are super easy to create and I believe will make great gifts and I hope sell well at the craft fair.
