This box opens to have the note cards attached to one side, envelopes on the other, and a pocket holding stamps...if you have any ideas on what to put on the empty side let me know. I saw this idea but made for the regular card size. While I was making it I thought, this is way too huge and modified it to fit the smaller cards SU sells. As it turns out this whole box will fit on one 12x12. You can get 2 lids out of 1 8 1/2 x 11.

Stamps: Wonderful Words
Paper: SU summer mini patterned papper, chocolate chip
OKay, here is how you make it...take a 12 x12 and turn it diamond wise. The top and bottom corners mark 4 inches each direction and cut the corners off. The side corners mark 2 inches each way and cut those corners off. You now have 8 corners, cut 4 inches down from each, making 4 triangles that will be cut off. You will be left with 2 flaps that are 5 3/4 x 4 and two flaps that are 3 x 4 and the center is 5 3/4 x 3. You must hold your cs diamond wise to make this.
Lid dimensions are 5 x 8 with a tad less then 1 inch score all the way around. This lid is important in keeping it all together so it needs to be snug but not too small not to go on.
I thought of home made address labels to go on the empty inside flap.

I just made this!!!!. Mine is out of the same paper,etc. Just a little different. I used the little gift cards that stampinup sells, so I didn't put stamps in cause I don't think you mail those, so I added gift tags to the sides.
Thanks, I'm going to use this in my gift making class.
