Use those paper pads!!

Hey everyone,

Thank you for popping over to my Blog. Today I am going to encourage you to use some of those paper pads we all love but sadly hoard! I am determined to use mine and I have been asked loads of times if I can do some videos on using them up. I hope you like what I made today.

A beautiful gift box for 10 cards & envelopes
So simple but so pretty
Get your paper pads out and give it a try!

I only used my 5 x 7″ cards, card stock, paper pad and one die to make these. I did also use a black micron pen to create some faux stitching and some enamel dots. I love how they turned out and these would make perfect gifts for anyone.

You can use any paper pads you already have to create these note cards sets. I really wanted to use 5 x 7″ cards as I rarely use them.

For the box I used two pieces of card measuring 11 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ I scored both pieces the same at 2″ on all four sides. Make sure one piece is moved away from the scoreboard slightly before you score. This will allow your lid to fit.

The black card for my box lid measured 5 1/4 x 7 1/4″ and the patterned paper was 5 x 7″

I will pop the link to the youtube video at the end of this post.

Bye for now xx
