Well here it is the box to hold my notes. I'm pretty pleased at how it turned out. Now I just need to figure out how many I need to make between now and Christmas. I had a little help on how to keep the box closed. I got the idea for the slip off belly band from here http://www.barbstamps.com/my_weblog/2008/06/tutorial---love-notes-and-pouch.html I thought about doing the pouch the way she had but did not have the 12 x 12 card so I went with a simpler box style instead.
I used a piece of cardstock measuring 7 1/2 X 11 inches. Scored lengthwise at (4), (4 1/2), (9) & (9 1/2) and across at (1), (1 1/2), (6) & (6 1/2). then I trimmed off what I didn't need leaving me with the above picture.
I turned it over and stamped an image in each corner from the stamp set and also on the corner of the envelopes that go with the notes. I then used sticky strip to stick the long end to the 2 short sides.
The belly band was made using both tag punches to make the label and 12 inches of white grosgrain ribbon. I thread both ends threw a punched hole and tied a knot. When you need to open the box the band just slips off.
I hope this makes sense. If you want I can attempt a diagram of the scoring and what you need to trim if this will help. Let me know.
Thanks for looking
