Working On The Stationary Box


Last Wednesday I posted the photo above for WOYW Wednesday to show that I had finally started my stationary box set! I have been working on it this past week and thought you might like to see the results as I go along.

I forgot to take a photo while making the top of the box, but you can see it to the left on the photo below sitting next to the other pieces I have started to assemble. I have learned after making many of the boxes to decorate the individual pieces first before I put them together.

The back wall of the box with the long pocket added.

Here I have added the two short pockets in front of the long one. (You can see the two pieces in the first photo.)

The inside of the box is decorated.

The box with the front folded up and the decorated top over the box.

The assembled pieces to decorate the front and sides of the box. (I had also made one for the back of the box but decided not to use it at this point.)

Here the pieces are added to the front of the box.

The basic decorated box is completed and waiting for accessories - inside and out.

You can find a tutorial by Jackie Topa at I will be working on the cards, etc. that go inside the box and the coordinating finishes that go on the outside of the box.

Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you a good Monday!

I love how this box turned out. The butterfly paper is great. My kids decided this morning that this is what they want to give their teachers for Christmas. I hope I'm up to it. Lol.
