Circle Of Friendship Notes Gift Set

Happy Monday to you!

Today I wanted to share with you these wonderful little 3x3 note cards and a gift box to put them in! Wouldn't these make a neat gift for someone? They are so super easy to make too. I used a combination of papers on mine. Mainly the Cutie Pie paper but also a little bit of the Afternoon Tea paper because it went so well with the Soft Sky card stock and the Blue Bayou that I used too. The Afternoon Tea paper is no longer available because it was in our last mini catalog.

The Cutie Pie paper and the two blue colors of card stocks are all going to be retired as of August 10th. The stamp set that I used will also be retired then too. It is called "Circle of Friendship". If you are interested in purchasing any of these products, send me an email and I would be happy to order them for you!

There are 6 mini 3x3 cards and envelopes and the box is just made out of card stock. The box bottom is made by cutting a 6 3/4 inch square piece of card stock and then scoring it at 1 3/4 inches on all four sides. Then you cut to the score line on the scored lines twice on only two sides. Making sure the two sides you choose are opposite one another. Once that is done, you can fold it and adhere the sides with sticky strip to themselves. You do the same thing to create the box lid only cut your card stock piece smaller. The lid dimensions are 4 3/4 inches square. Then you score it at 3/4 of an inch on all four sides. Follow the instructions for the box bottom for assembly. Does it sound confusing? Once you make one you will see how very easy it is to make.
3 x 3 Card Recipes:
  • Stamp Set - Circle of Friendship
  • Inks - Blue Bayou and Rose Red
  • Papers - Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Rose Red and Very Vanilla card stocks. Cutie Pie and Afternoon Tea Designer Series papers
  • Embellishments - Soft Sky and Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Grosgrain ribbons ( Both of these are no longer in stock now. They have completely sold out!)
  • Tools - 1 inch, 1 1/4 inch and 1 3/8 inch Circle punches and dimensionals.

These little gift card sets would be a great way to use up those designer paper scraps that I'm sure we all have too! You could substitute any little stamp set with greetings or quotes or just use one with little flowers or something! I think these would be neat little gifts. I might make one for my kids teachers at the beginning of the school year. I can't believe that school is going to start for us in about 3 weeks! My how the summer has flown by!

I plan to share some things I've made using sets that are on the discontinued list with you this week. I've also noticed that I am getting close to 1000 hits on my blog! Yay! When I get to 1000, I will have a drawing online for some blog candy!! Whoo Hoo! Be sure to check back and leave a comment on the post when I announce the drawing! It will probably be sometime this week!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you were inspired to go stamp something!

Happy Stampin'
