Happy Thursday!  A few days ago, I was asked to make one of my post-it note boxes as a gift card holder.  I have one that sets on my desk that I couldn’t be without.  I pull them out, write myself important notes that I don’t want to forget and then stick them to the wall in front of me.  (I still forget what I’m supposed to do  . . . CRS, yes!)  The idea is to put a gift card into the box and then the recipient can use the box for sticky notes.  I put in the box a packet of post-it notes leaving enough room for the gift card to be placed in as well.

I first tried this box when it was a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  You can find the directions here.  Because I like to have a lip on the bottom and top edges, I use a 10×10” of paper to make the origami box.  The top and bottom and heavy weight coasters.


I used Spellbinders dies to cut and emboss the labels and flowers on the top of the box.  The flowers were covered with matte accents and then sprinkled with glitter to add a touch of bling.


The border along the outside edge was also cut and embossed with a Spellbinders borderabilities die.  Because this box is meant to hold post-it notes, I stamped music notes on the top panel and to give an aged look, misted it with water and dabbed off.
