MCT What A Treat Wednesday: Monogram Notecard Set + Box

by Veronica

Over the last two weeks, I've shared a couple of Monogram Notecards (1,2) that I'm giving to a friend for her hospitality in hosting our Bible study group in her home this summer. Well, the set is complete and I've made a coordinating envelope box to put them all in.


I'm super happy with how this set turned out. All of the cards coordinate with each other, but they're not too matchy-matchy.

The card box was made using my Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board. Would you believe that I've owned this product for 2 years and this is my second time ever using it? I found this super helpful video tutorial on how to make this box the perfect size to fit my notecard set.

My box fits all four of these cards (which use quite a few pop dots, so they're not super flat) and four envelopes. The belly band keeps the box closed and is really easy to slip off. When adhering your belly band closed, be sure to not make it too tight. You want it to slip on and off the box easily.

I chose not to snip off the little tabs at the top as the tutorial instructs. When I close the box, I like that the edges are closed as well. Just my personal preference.

That's it for my "treat" today. You can see more on Emma's blog.

I hope you were inspired!
