Super Easy Mother's Day Stationery Box Tutorial

This is an oldie but a goodie, and extremely versatile! The box is made from one sheet of card stock, and you can doll it up, or just leave it lean and clean. The box will hold 8-12 cards and their respective envelopes, and is sized to hold standard (5-1/2" x 4-1/4") card sets. However, you can save time and money when you fill the box with Notecards & Envelopes. (each package has 20 cards and envelopes, I suggest splitting it in half and tucking 10 cards and envelopes in each box). A few years ago I made several of these for a Mother's Day luncheon, if I remember correctly, up to 9 Ferrero Rocher candies tuck nicely down in the bottom. I mean, handmade cards are pretty, but you can EAT chocolate! So maybe, diet = cards; no diet = candies??? You decide ;-)



When you look at the tutorial, you'll see my sample from a few years ago. (love that Baja Breeze card stock, but it's retiring and appears to be sold out already!) The cards and envelopes in the old box are standard size, so you can see how they fit compared to the Notecards & Envelopes I have in this current box. Also, I used Sticky Strip on the old box, but I used Tombow Multi Glue to put this one together, and it holds just great. And on this one, I used about 8" of ribbon to tie through the handle, just for reference. Stay tuned for a look at some simple coordinating cards you can tuck inside...
