Gift Box

Here is a gift box of thank you cards I put together for a dear friend of mine. I've been meaning to make her a little gift for some time. The box measures 4"square and the notecards are 3.75"square. I came across this Origami Box Tutorial and decided THIS was what I was going to make for her. I made the notecards to match the box and fit inside. I used the Grateful Elegance set from Verve Stamps. I colored the flowers using Blue Bayou ink and a blender pen. This is definitely a gift project I'll re-create. . .it really came together quickly.
