Stationery Box to go...!

One of my very special, super sweet wonderful friends had a birthday yesterday and I wanted to make her a little something special! I have been so short on time lately that I had to put the finishing touches on her gift in the car going down the road! We had a home school field trip yesterday/today and because it was 3 hours away we decided to drive down early and stay the night last night in a hotel! We were meeting our friends at the hotel and I wanted to be able to give her the gift then!

I made her this stationery box using Jackie Topa's wonderful directions! It was a breeze to assemble, but took quite a while to complete all the little details! I used DSP from SU! called Bella Rose and added the stamped rose on the front to all of the envelopes to pull everything together! The box holds 4 cards, 3 note cards and 4 tags. I also tucked in a gift certificate to a local coffee house and a card that I am kicking myself for not getting a photo of! I am sorry about the stinky quality of these photos, but I had to snap them quickly and was in poor light.

She is such a wonderful friend and I wanted her to know I love her! : ) Happy birthday, Cindy!!
