Floral note set

I've got a very quick and easy project to share today.  I use a lot of note cards and when boxed can make nice, inexpensive gifts.

To make the note cards I used the Nestibilities small scalloped squares set (the largest die in that set).  Fold your card and trim to more or less to size then die cut - make sure you place the fold of the card below the scallops as per picture below so you don't cut through the fold.

Then just mat and layer with contrasting card and papers, I wanted a clean background so didn’t use designer papers, instead I used a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss that layer.  I have used the primroses image from the Whiff of Joy Birdie Love kit, which I have coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O’s.

The box is one of the simple Pizza Boxes.  There are loads of different templates and tutorials out there on the web so I am not showing a step by step, but I have a rough template to share showing the sizes that I used to fit the scalloped nesties.  I started off with a piece of card 6” x 11”, then scored and cut as per the template below.
