I have been reading this blog called "Wizard's Hangout" for a while, and was inspired by all the boxes she makes! I winged it on the dimensions, so no measurements for you, sorry. I used an 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of white cardstock for the base and part of another for the lid. I basically figured my envies were going to be the standard 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" and I wanted it to be 1" deep, so made the template to fit. The lid was made with the same measurements, only adding an 1/8" to make it slip over the top of the base.
I also am just so in love with this stamp set from PTI, "Turning a New Leaf" and keep wanting to use it over and over again.
Also these little flowers are so cute and easy to make, and I made a bunch. I found a free printable poem online, and changed the font to something swirly, called Vivaldi. I put it in Works, and kept copy and pasting until it filled the page, and also changed the margins so it printed as close to the edges as I could make it. The last thing was to justify the edges so it was even all the way down both the right and left margins. I was able to cut 15 scallops on each piece of paper using a 2" scallop punch, and each flower used 4 layers. The felt is just free-hand cut into leaf shapes. Then I stapled the flower layers and leaves together with Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher, love that thing!
I used a new (to me anyways!) Martha Stewart border punch, and a sentiment set from Hero Arts for the greetings.
