Sale-a-Bration Stationery Box Instructions

I absolutely LOVE the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper that we can get for FREE during Stampin' Up!'s 2013 Sale-a-Bration!

I just love looking at the colors and patterns, and it reminds me of a couple of stationery boxes with coordinating cards that I created a few years ago--with other patterned papers that made me drool. Here is the set I made using the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (DSP), plus the coordinating Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack, and with some stamping courtesy of the Madison Avenue stamp set. I chose them because ALL 3 of these items are available for FREE during the Sale-a-Bration. You can choose one for every $50 you a PARTY with at least $400 in sales, and you get ALL THREE for FREE, plus LOTS, LOTS MORE!

Click HERE for PDF Instructions for the Box
(12 sheets of DSP will make 9 boxes, with enough left over for 36 card front layers measured at 4"x5-1/4"...that's 9 boxes of 4 cards and envelopes each! Or, make 12 boxes with only 2 card front layers leftover from each sheet, and stamp the other two cards--like I did in this set.)

You will definitely want to grab some packages of coordinating card stock and ink for this project, so I've listed those below with ordering links for your convenience. (* indicates supplies specifically used in my sample) I've also added a couple of tools and other supplies to that list, which you will want for assembly of your Sycamore Street Boxed Card Set. The awesome thing is, the more supplies you order, the MORE FREE STUFF YOU GET YOU GET TO PICK!
