Boxed Gift Card Sets


I made boxed gift card sets for numerous Christmas gifts.  The sets came together quickly and the matching “box” completes the collection.  I found the directions for the card box at Jill’s Card Creations.  She has a great tutorial with photos for making the box.  You will be amazed at how easy this box is to cut and assembly.  Inside the box, I added 6 stamped cards with envelopes.  The enclosed cards are your standard A2 size, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I stamped various themes, keeping the color scheme the same.  I kept the cards on the simple side, for the sake of easy mailing.   My goal was to gift the recipients with a gift they could actually use.  I can’t count how many times I have heard some mention they need to go to the store to buy a card.  With the gift sets, they will have a card on hand for numerous occasions.  If you have a friend or neighbor in need of a pick me up, how about making them a gift set?  I am sure it will be well received.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted.

Sets like these are always a wonderful gift to receive. Your cards are beautiful. What a great idea to put the same design on the box itself. Thank you for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
