Stationary Box Gift

The Pastor at our church, Jerry, and his wife, Lucy, are leaving us and moving to Virginia. They are such nice people and they will be miss for sure. I wanted to make them a gift and decided this was the perfect time to try out this stationary box tutorial that everyone has been making on SCS and in blogland. I am so pleased with the way it turned out!

I used a sheet of Ridinghood Red textured cardstock and a sheet of the Washington Apple Designer Series Paper.

This is the box all closed up.
And when you take off the lid- this is what you find!
There is a little book that Lucy can use for addresses or birthdays. There is also a little envelope for stamps and a matching pen. (I just put some of the Designer Series Paper into a clear pen. I then added a little loop of the DSP on the box to hold the pen.
These are some of the small notecards that are in one of the pockets on the box.

Here are some tags that are in another pocket. I used Flower Fusion on these along with some Rhinestone brads.

I am having some issues with blogger right now and I can't seem to upload my pics of the other cards in the box or tha matching gift bag. Sorry! Come back tomorrow and I am sure I will have them posted!
