How to make a memento, note card or recipe box with dividers & thank you gift bags

This cute little box & dividers was our class project last week and can be used to hold all sorts of contents - I have made several and use mine to hold cards I have made, notes & reminders I need to refer to, recipes & inspiration ideas for future projects. I came across this lovely little box with tutorial here at Bekka's blog - thanks for the inspiration Bekka!

My box was crafted with basic black cardstock (with a nod in the direction of forthcoming Halloween!) and Epic Day designer series paper and I tweaked the tutorial by adding a cutting grid for my class members to follow to ensure they got all the pieces they needed out of their 12"x12" paper sheets.

The decoration was made using the scallop circle punch for the black card, the circle punch for the Epic Day paper and the little butterflies were punched using the Elegant Butterfly punch - still on a 15% discount offer when bought as a bundle with the Papillion Potpourri butterfly stamp set until 30th September!

Customers who attend my classes & place an order for £15 receive a free class & materials; they also get a little gift bag to thank them for their custom & support :)

The gift bags are full of Stampin Up seasonal papers, twine, embellishments, handmade card toppers and this month I added tags all ready to be made up for gifts for a Stampin Up Christmas!

I used a variety of blue cardstock shades which I embossed with the new Pretty Print embossing folder and then stuck a coordinating two step flower from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set along with butterflies from the Papillion Potpourri set - which still has a 15% discount offer on when purchased with the coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch! 

The scallop circle was made using whisper white card and the scallop circle punch and the sentiments are from Fabulous Phrases stamp set in crushed curry & coastal cabana ink.
