Today’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge is Cindy. She is challenges us to create anything that could be found on your desk. I thought I would create a little note pad box with the new Summer Blossoms and Letters in Blossom sets from this month release.

First I cut around 70 3 1/2″ squares out of printer paper. The edges of each square were rounded. Some squares were stamped with New Sprout Memento Ink and a corner blossom from Summer Blossoms, some where stamped with the B from Letters in Blossom.

For the box I started with a 7 5/8″ square of green cardstock. Each side was scored at 1″ and 2″. Before the box was adhered together,  images from the Summer Blossoms set were used to stamp the outer walls with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. One one side I used a 3/4″ circle punch to create a slot to make it easier to get the single papers out of the box. Before the papers were added, I taped a piece of white wrinkled ribbon on the bottom of the box as another help to lift the papers out of the box.

The outer ribbon end was topped with a button, sewn one with embroidery thread. A 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of copy paper was stamped densely, rolled and slipped into an RSVP pen. To finish off my box I created a box top out of clear cardstock. A 5 3/4″ square was scored at 1″ on each side to create the top.

I hope you have time to play. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
