Christmas Presents for my Mom and Mom-in-Law





I had so much fun making these presents. 2 good friends came over to my house on Sunday and stamped with me. I made these cards while they were there. I made 2 each for a total of 6 cards with matching envelopes. After my friends left, I made the boxes to put the cards in with textured cardstock then used some supplies from my Happy Me Scrappin' Kit to decorate them. The gifts were a big hit. TFL!!
ETA: I used this tutorial by Andrea Walford for making the box. Her directions are for a 3 X 3 card box and I just adjusted it to fit normal sized cards (4-1/4" X 5-1/2"). It was actually very simple to make. Andrea provides great directions. I did make my box lid a little taller than hers though since my box was bigger.

Gorgeous cards! Love the box. I was looking for a box to fit standard sized cards just before Christmas - drat!

You wouldn't by chance have the exact measurements you used for this box. I really suck at figuring things like this out!

Thanks for sharing
