I love Mini Cards – there I said it. Whilst you can’t post mini cards because of their mini nature, they are the cutest thing to hand out. Perfect for keeping in a bag, pocket or drawer to hand out as necessary or as a random act of kindness. You can box them and gift the box of cards to someone for them to use themselves – so many different options!
The box and matching cards were designed when we were transitioning between catalogues and the one item I knew was going to be in the new Annual Catalogue was the 6×6 Colour Family Designer Series Paper stacks. Cherry Cobbler hasn’t featured on a project of mine in a little while, so it just had to be used.
It is made from a single sheet of A4 cardstock, including the hinge – which I love. I have seen a lot of hinged boxes like this where the tutorials show you how to make it with multiple pieces of cardstock or paper, but never where you can make it from a single sheet. So I’m pretty impressed that I managed to work out how to do it (I won’t tell you how many sheets of retired card stock I used whilst practising). But I figured it out and I LOVE the result.
