The stationery box that I first showed you HERE is so easy to make!  I promise that once you start, you will want to make one for each of  your friends and give them as gifts.

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 Sheets of 12 x 12 Cardstock to coordinate with the Designer Series Paper of Your Choice
  • Designer Series Paper (I am using the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack that will be available to order on June 2nd)
  • Fast Fuse Adhesive
  • Stampin’ Trimmer
  • Simply Scored
  • Paper Snips
  • Thin magnet to use as closure

Measurements & Scoring  for the 12 x 12 Cardstock:


  • Cut two pieces of cardstock 12″ x 7″
  • Score the vertical side of both pieces at 1″

To keep the box lid closed, I punched a circle from a thin sticky-back magnet sheet.
