Here is my take on Dannie's Stationery Box Tutorial. I was able to make this after printing her templates and watching her wonderful step-by-step video. Dannie uses all SU, but I don't have much of the paper or money to keep it up. I was able to match some SU stuff into it. Colors are: Not Quite Navy, Brocade Blue, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. I used SU inks and the paper for the top and some of the cards. The base of this box is Bassill because it has the same type of thickness as SU. Other papers are from Michael's and are called Bohemia by My Mind's Eye. They have a blue set that I plan on using for the next box, but all of it matches so beautifully. The first picture is of the standard cards and samples of the 3x3 card and tags.
The second is the complete kit. Inside the box is a place for standard A2 cards, 3x3 cards, tags, stamps, pen, etc. Dannie included a note pad, but I put a 2009 calendar in place of that.
Here it is all packed up for giving. I am really excited by the results and plan on making more for gifts this Christmas...can we say teacher gifts? Sorry the colors are a bit washed out. I will do better next time. Thanks for looking! April
