Thank-You Card Box

Hi everyone! I just finished making this cute little box to hold thank you cards. It is the end of our school year and I wanted to have thank you cards on hand to send to some of my students families. I know that I said I was done using the apple from Preserves but I used it again! :) Here is the box:

Here is what the cards on the inside looked like:

I cute the apple at 3 1/2 inches and I used Stampin' Up! Real Red and Chocolate chip. I used K and Co. for the yellow inside part of the apple. The yellow lined paper is just actual paper off of a yellow legal pad that I cut to fit and I used a fiskars punch to give it that torn notebook look.
To make the box I used the Presto Patterns paper (which I have a video on youtube that shows how to use this paper(***update, my video lighting was bad so I am going to put the video on youtube tomorrow. Sorry!). I used Old Olive ink with the new Cherry Cobbler paper for a border. The border was cut at 2 1/2 inches then I used the scallop edge punch. I used my SU scallop punch and my nestabilites for the circles. The ribbon is SU chocolate chip.

The cute little caterpillar is from the set First Day (which is in the summer mini).

Here is how I made the box. Sorry for all the pictures. I am hoping to make a video of it soon.
First take a piece of cardstock cut at 6x12

Then you are going to score it at: 4 1/4, 5 3/4, 10, and 11 1/2.

Next score at 1 1/2 along the bottom

Last, make 4 cuts then fold the box in. You will need a good adhesive for this. I use zip dry.

Thank you for visiting and I really do hope to have a video of this up soon. School is just going on forever this year! One more week!! :)


  1. Wendy,
    I can never get tired of that apple, I love it. The stamp and sentiment is adorable. Thanks for giving the instrucions on how to make this, it will be going on my "to do" list.

  2. Thanks for the directions on the box! I was making "note cards" this weekend and kept cutting different size purses to shove them into and nothing would fit. This will be perfect. Your awesome... Thank you!
