Sunshine Garden Stationery Box/Card Organizer

[Update, March 1, 2009 - Okay, my Mom would not be pleased with me if I left you with pictures of the dust on the piano. So, I've updated the pictures. Also, if you go to the March 1, 2009, post, you'll get a much more complete list of the materials used to make these boxes. By the way, we had a BLAST at the Stamp Camp.]

Here’s a little taste of the project we’ll be making at our Open House/Stamp Camp on February 21. 

I got to spend some time this past weekend putting together the final prototype for our Stamp Camp on February 21. (Doesn’t “prototype” sound so official?) I have to confess that I don’t use the Simply Scrappin’ kits very often, but when I do, I’m always impressed with how much STUFF you get. It’s freakin’ amazing how much you can make with them- they’re like some magic never-ending box. So, check out what I made with the Garden Sunshine kit.

Gift Tags . . . Aren’t these cute?


Mini note cards . . . I whipped these together in about five minutes and then jumped in the car to see my daughter. I actually took the picture at the gas station while my Tom ran in to get snacks for the road. I love it when such a quick and easy project turns out so adorable.


Full size cards for any occassion . . .


The outside of the stationery box . . . I may tweak this a little still. I'm thinking it needs another ribbon – one can never have too much ribbon!


And, finally, the inside of the stationery box . . .


Funny thing about this picture  – it’s a lousy picture of the stationery box, but a great picture of all the dust on my piano.  I just had time to take a real quick picture before my box went out on loan. As soon as I get it back I’ll give you a better picture.

The Simply Stampin’ kit makes this project a breeze, and I only used about half the kit. Because I put together the "prototype" for this project, I also got to put together the "Bill of Materials" (yes, I'm so official). Wow, look what our campers will be getting with their kits and the toys we'll play with to assemble it.
