Happy Wednesday! I'm having a little "Christmas in July" today and showing you a little peek at a new product over at Taylored Expressions - Perfect Packages. These amazing little boxes come in different sizes, and now they come in the perfect size to hold the standard A2 size cards! I love putting card sets together, and this incredibly sturdy box really gives the set a professional & classy look. The best part is you don't need any adhesive to assemble it! AND it stays closed by a single magnet clasp in the front - how cool is that? Hop on over to Taylor's blog to find out how you can win your very own set of Perfect Packages! Taylor is also running a special on all Christmas stamps - get them for 20% off from July 15-25!
I thought it would be fun to decorate my box to look like a Christmas gift, all wrapped up, waiting for someone to pull the ribbon. I made quick and easy cards to fit inside - I have 10 cards and 10 envelopes sitting in this box and look how cute they look in there - you could even decorate a set of 10 cards with more layers and embellishments and they would still fit nicely inside!
I used Season of Joy to make my little poinsettia flowers and then added a few drops of Christmas Red Stickles to give the centers just a little pop. This is an excellent way to cut down your cost when mass producing cards. One little bottle of Stickles lasts a LONG time. Love that stuff.
The Baker's Dozen have created more examples for you to peek at today - go check them out.
