Scalloped Envelope Box

Yes, you read that right! An envelope box:) This box is made by making using the Big Shot and scallop envelope die. Cut four of the envelopes and adhere together to make the box. Then decorate as desired. The scallop top can be adhered down to the box (which I did on this one) or left up for a little different look. Inside the box I decorated peppermint patties with Georgia Peach designer paper using my Scallop Circle punch and a regular circle punch (the 1/4 inch circle punch is retiring!). This is an easy project to make and a fun decoration or gift!

Top Note Card

Happy New Year!

Isn't this cute? It is easily made with the top note die. Just fold your cardstock in half and place your cardstock a little lower on the die, so it keeps the fold at the top instead of cutting it. I used the white craft ink on the Kraft cardstock, paper pireced the scallop circle and added a library clip to finish off the card. I got the idea from this card.

Stamp Sets: Simply Said, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Kraft, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette
Ink: White Craft, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Striped Grosgrain, library clip, circle punches, scallop circle punch
