lil box o' sticky notes

Check out this cute lil box...

With a surprise inside...

I picked up this little cube of 2x2 sticky notes the
last time I was at the big box store.

I figured I could do something with it...

Start with a piece of 5"x5" cardstock (I used Wild Wasabi)
 and score at 1 1/2" and 3 1/2" on both sides.

Snip 2 lines... on 2 opposite sides.

Turn the paper over and stamp with a large background
stamp... I used the "Medallion" stamp.

Use "Snail Adhesive" to glue each of the 4 tabs.

Fold over the tabs and press together, making sure 
the "middle" flap is on the outside.

Next, you need to make your lid.
Cut another piece of coordinating cardstock to 3 1/8 x 3 1/8".
Score at 1/2" around each of the 4 edges.

Flip over the cardstock and stamp with the "Medallion" stamp.

Snip 2 scored lines on 2 opposite sides.

Use "Snail Adhesive" on all 4 tabs, 
fold inward, and press together.

Make a tag... on this one I used the free Sale-a-Bration set
"Sweet Summer" and the "sweet" verbiage came from 
"Fabulous Phrases".  I tied a button with "Linen Thread",
tied the top of the box with "Early Espresso" striped ribbon
and glued the tag to the top.


My husband said it would make a cute gift for his 
secretary... I think it just found a new home!

This was so easy to make... try it!

Need any supplies?
Have any questions?

Have a great day!
