Inside the Stationary Boxes

Statinoary Box made with Stampin' Up! SuppliesOkay, I’ve finally finished the five stationary boxes I was making and I’m ready to share them with you!  I am so very excited about these boxes and their contents!  I’ve had a lot of fun making them even though I will admit it takes a lot of work to make them.  These boxes would make a great gift for just about anyone!

Handmade stationary storage boxHere’s the inside!  There is storage for four cards and envelopes, four 3×3 cards with envelopes, and four gift tags.  There is also a pocket for a book of stamps, a post it pad and a pen.

I created this particular box with Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette cardstocks along with Bella Birds DSP.  I have Dannie Graves to thank for this wonderful box idea!  I wish I could come up with something this brilliant myself!

Bella Birds and Oval AllHere are the cards I made for in this particular stationary box.  It’s a fairly simple card with Bella Birds DSP, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White cardstock, and the Oval All stamp set. 

The 3×3 cards were made using the Echoes of Kindness level 2 hostess set along with the All Holidays stamp set.  The gift tags used the Yummy set from Sale-A-Bration and then I used the the Warm Words set on the Post It Note.  The Echoes of Kindness stamp set was stamped on the sides in Chocolate Chip ink. 

Echoes of KindnessHere’s a peek at three of the other boxes I made.  I won’t bore you with pictures of every little detail of every box but I thought you might like to see the variety. 

Handmade Stationary BoxWhat do you think of these?  I’d love to see your comments if you have a minute!

  1. I think they’re lovely! Quick question – did you stamp on every Post-It note to make it decorative? That might sound hilarious, but I’ve actually thought about doing it myself. I just wasn’t sure I wanted to spend that kind of time doing it! 🙂

    • Actually, yes, I do stamp every page of the post it notes. 🙂 It takes a little bit of time but not too much. The key is to pick a small stamp so you don’t have to open the pages too far. I know if I got a project like this I’d never want to use the first page if it was the only one stamped. What would be the purpose of having it if I wouldn’t use it?!

      Thank you again for visiting my blog!

  2. I love them! They are adorable! How do these people think of this stuff? I wish I had that kind of creativity in my brain………but I’ll probably just CASE it eventually.

  3. Beck, these would be perfect for the two aunts! About how much would this cost?

  4. These are GORGEOUS! How neat! I love the colors and the first one, then I see the next one (my favorite because of the yellow ribbon), and then I see the next one – so terrific! You have such talent finding colors that work together! So neat! You should sell these 🙂

    • Actually, I am going to take them to the Markets at Shrewsbury to see if she is willing to sell them and I’m also going to list a couple on my Etsy shop I’m setting up. I hope they sell!

  5. Becky, these are awesome!! I was surprised to see the inside. They would make great gifts. I think you will do well on selling them. I know I will buy one. Great job!! Keep up the good work!

  6. Do you have a tutorial that you could send me for this. This is the coolest thing. I would love to make one for my son who leaves for Marine Corp boot camp on July 12th.

  7. Becky, I love them too. They would be great for gifts. Are you going to have a class on how to make this boxes? Or at least instructions on how to make them.

    • Tammy, how did I know that question would come up? I will think on it and get back to you. 🙂 most likely we’ll do it someway, I’m not sure if it’ll be a class by “mail” or in person.

  8. These are simply wonderful! You will have no problem selling them. Who could resist?

  9. Becky, I like all of them. I bet they will sell. I have the pattern, but I have never taken the time to make one up yet.

    How can I get the template and instructions for this it is a great idea and you did a wonderful job.

  11. They are fantastic! And would make the best of handmade gifts! I’d be interested in a template and instructions too, if available.

  12. Hi 🙂 these are so nice! I am doing a graphics coursework and it is a stationary pack and I have chosen your product the analyse. So please could you tell me the material and the cost of the material, the size, the texture, the finish, why you chose the colours and what cost would you put them at if they were for sale?

    I would very much appreciate a reply, thank you!

    Helen 🙂

  13. Beautiful work! I love all your creative work, you have a good eye for colour and finishing off your projects so that they reflect quality! I would love to be able to make these, if you were to have an online class it would be great.
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Actually, Linda, I am planning another class for this kit on March 23. I do plan to offer the class through the mail and I will be happy to contact you with more information when I have the details figured out.

      Becky 🙂

  14. Wow! These are amazing! I was wondering, could you possibly tell me how you made these as I would like to make one for my daughters 18th coming soon and although I would like to buy one, I would prefer to make one so that I can personalise it for her.
    Thank you

  15. I honestly do not know how I missed this one, maybe it was before I joined up. The boxes are just gorgeous and the colors are beautiful especially the last one. Do you make them to sell? I know someone who wants one. Excellent work Becky and thanks for sharing.

  16. Hi, I saw your stationary set online. I would love to buy some of them or if you have instructions on how to make them. Thank you and keep making these beautiful gifts.

  17. Is there a tutorial for this project?
    thank you.

  18. I love this do you have a tutorial you could share? I have been trying to find a gift idea!
