La Belle Vie Stationery Box/Set


Here is another project that I made for the Accessories Presentation at the Close to my Heart Convention. This is a “book box” with a stationery set inside. I covered a simple chipboard box with some paper from the beautiful La Belle Vie Collection. I used some of the striped paper around the edges to make it look like pages in a book. The top is embellished with coordinating My Stickease, Gold Mini Medley Accents, a flower from the new Colonial White Rosette Ribbon, and a heart cut from our new burlap ribbon.


I also used the new Artiste Cricut cartridge to make the accordion rosette flower. (Did you know that the Artiste cartridge has SEVEN different accordion rosette flowers on it? LOVE IT!)

The main compartment on the inside holds 12 cards each with a strip of La Belle Vie paper attached with a zigzag stitch in brown thread. The small compartment on top contains 12 more rosette flowers, each with a burlap heart in in the center. When you are ready to put your card together, simply attach the rosette where ever you like on the card and stamp an appropriate sentiment for your occasion.


The set also includes a matching pen. When you use up all of your cards, simply take out the dividers and you have a decorative storage box that can be used for just about anything.

  8. Thank you for your kind words Diane! You are very sweet. I don't have exact measurements for the dividers for this projects. I sort of just eyeballed it as I went along. (I can tell you though, that my trash can was FULL of dividers that didn't fit when I was finally done with the project. LOL!)

  10. It looks amazing. It all looks great together. I love the simplicity of the cards too. I was wondering what box did you use and possibly where you got it. Thanks for the inspiration.
