Notelet Box

Here's a gift I've made yesterday. Took me a long time to make as I adapted it from a tutorial by Sarah (who has loads more inspirational things on her blog, make sure you check it out). I altered the sizes to make it fit 10cm by 10cm cards (I seem to be into this size lately) with their envelopes.

I've used the Elzybells dogs to decorate everything. I like this green card I found last week at the Papermill but didn't know what I was going to do with it but it goes really well with the brown card. If I make another of these, I will make it thinner as I originally thought of putting 6 thank you notelets inside but there seems to be a lot of wasted space. I will probably make another 6 to fit into this box, possibly a different design.

The large circle on the box front has been mounted using a double layer of foam pads to make it stand out enough to allow the lid to drop down behind it.

I wish my camera would do the project justice as it really does look much better in real life and it's a really sturdy piece too.

This is great! This is a fab gift!

I treated myself to a box of paper from the Papermill at the weekend, I love the pick and mix, much better than sweets!

Hi Paul, I have been following your blog for a while now and think your work is great. I love the notelet box you adapted from the original tutorial from Card Oasis but wondered if you would be able to let me know the dimensions you used in the end as I would love to make this size box.
Thanks Max
