Hi Everyone! Today's post is our last in our Pansies on Parade series and we'll make the box that holds 3×3 cards. (see above)
I choose a Thank You theme because I recently read an article that talked how you can easily "pay it forward" with simple thank you's. Keep them in your purse or car. As you interact with people who help you, wait on you, etc.., hand them a thank you to let them know they are appreciated. I owe one to Elizabeth at my doctors office. She's a nurse and is always so pleasant!! and goes the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. Or maybe you see a cashier at a fast food restaurant that needs a little pick-me-up…So that's my new mission! Having little thank you's on-hand.

The following materials were used to make our box. Download Note Box Template for 3×3 Cards
8 1/2" x 3 1/2" Rich Razzleberry cardstock
Scrap Whisper White cardstock
Sticky Strip Tape
One of our pansies – see other postings/videos on how to make
18" Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon
Elegant Thank You stamp
Old Olive ink
Large Oval Punch
(I'm using blue so it shows better)
Score as shown and be sure to open up template document. Cut out the little corner completely and cut tabs. Fold at all score lines to break down paper fibers. Apply Sticky Strip to tabs – my trick is to fold inwards so the tape is on the underside of the tab.
Take tape off one tab at a time and fold to create box. Tie ribbon around box and position towards top.
Stamp thank you on white card stock using Old Olive ink. Punch out using the Oval punch and use dauber to ink edges. Adhere to box with dimenional. Adhere pansy to box with dimension.
Now your box is ready for your 3 x 3 notecards! THANK ALL OF YOU for following my blog and videos and I so appreciate your business and fellowship though crafting.
Happy Crafting! ~ Dee
