Long Note Card Box-Completed
It's perfect to store Long Notes you can whip out and write on to give your Administrative Assistant a show of appreciation on Administrative Assistants' Day… which is TODAY!
I used the new Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder (#123106) on the "racing stripes" I put on the lid. I stamped matching butterflies from Butterfly Prints (#121049, Wood-Mount; #120738, Clear-Mount-uses Clear-Mount Blocks B #117147 & A #118487 for whole set) on scraps of Daffodil Delight (#119683) and Tangerine Tango (#111349) Card Stock with Riding Hood Red (#111836) and Chocolate Chip (#100908) Classic Stampin' Pads. The butterfly designs are made for the Butterfly Punch (#119848)! I pinched the wings together, then flattened them out and added Pearls Basic Jewels (#119247) and Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) to the middles.
The Whisper White Paper Daisies (#119*243) really take to ink well. I used Sponge Daubers (#102892) and "pounced" the petals with Riding Hood Red (#111836), Daffodil Delight (#119667) and Tangerine Tango (#111834) Classic Stampin' Pads. A Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric Brad (#121880) in the middle & everything is ready to attach with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). You can also place the flowers and pierce a hole in the lid with the Paper Piercing Tool (#116631), then anchor them with the brad.
After I assembled the box, I realized I could have made it a little larger and put in matching #10 envelopes. If you want to do that, use these revised directions:
The box bottom is a 12" x 7" piece of Tangerine Tango 12" x 12" Card Stock (#119949), scored at 1-1/4" all the way around. The top is 10-3/4" x 5-3/4" piece of Chocolate Chip 12" x 12" Card Stock (#119926) scored at 11/16" all the way around.
