Teacher gifts

Incredible teachers deserve incredible gifts. One dozen 3x3 notecards with envelopes. Custom-designed box with ribbon carry strap features a hinged lid with a Basic Grey magnetic closure. Nifty and neat! For a video tutorial that inspired this box please visit Basic Grey's site and click 'watch the video demo' link.
Swarovski crystals, SU cardstock, Basic Grey patterned paper, Prima flowers, May Arts Ribbon.
The custom box is a single sheet of cardstock. Here is a link to the box pattern; I increased the depth from 3/4" to 1-1/2" to accomodate the additional quantity of cards enclosed. I also added eyelets to the sides and a ribbon carrying strap for portability.
Card base was created on the computer - one sheet of cardstock yields three cards. Print, score & cut. I would do these again!
