Savannah's Box

I've had the idea to make this little flashcard box for Savannah ever since Melanie sent me her What's In Your Tin 1 set. The borders looked like playing card to me. I've had the Stampin' Up sets ABC Images and both ABC Alphabets since they came out because I thought they'd be perfect for things like this. The box is a template from a collection of templates I bought at Oriental Trading Fun Expressions. I've used the templates before and someone asked me for a link once and I forgot to post one. You can find this set of templates here. I used the Gift Box template for this project. I used quite a few stamp sets too. The monogram "s" and the letters on the flashcards are from the ABC Upper and Lower Alphabets from Stampin' Up. The images are from the ABC Images set from Stampin' Up. The borders and "this belongs to" stamps are from What's in Your Tin 1 from GinaK Designs, and the letters I used to spell my daughter's name are from the Simple Alphabet by Papertrey Ink. I haven't finished all of the flashcards yet, but I'm close! :) Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- What's In Your Tin 1 (GinaK Designs), Simple Alphabet (Papertrey Ink), ABC Upper and Lower alphabets, ABC Images (SU); Paper- Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU); Ink- Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black(SU); Accessories- box template (Oriental Trading), double stitched ribbon in Purely Pomegranate, 3/4" and 1" circle punches, various markers (SU)

Charmaine, your box and your cards are fantastic! Are you going to laminate your cards?
Hugs and smiles

Charmaine, that is brilliant. I have some alphabet cards which Oliver got from a birthday party he went to and I kept thinking I need to put these in something - this would be perfect.

Ooooh... I'm thinking Carter needs a set of these!! Of course, mine will be much LOUDER and TACKIER, because that's the way I roll... : ) And, I did just buy a professional laminating machine from Sam's last week (impulsive? yes, but AWESOME!!!) Hugs to you, Shortcake!

Oooooh! So cute! My oldest son is 3 and I should really make a set of these for him! I love the stamp set from SU! but I need to have 2 sets of images because he's bilingual. There are a few that match like b for boat/bâteau but a for apple and p for pomme don't quite work! LOL! Love the idea though!
