Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today with a fun little project using the "Radiant" collection by Authentique Paper, and some really sweet sequin from Pretty Pink Posh.  For my project today, I created little mini-notecards, and fun boxes to hold them.  I hope you enjoy!


For the boxes, I used an 'Artist Trading Card' Sizzix die to cut the base out of chipboard and patterned paper, then used a small butterfly die to cut out a butterfly for the middle.  Then folded and adhered the paper to the chipboard using a very strong permanent adhesive. For the bottom's of the boxes, I wrapped pretty crochet trims and a little snippet of a wooden fence, securing with hot glue.  The center is clear by way of a small piece of transparency, which was sandwiched in between the pattern paper and chipboard.  I added fun stickers to the top, some matching sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and of course, little wire antennae to the butterflies.


Before adhering the paper to the chipboard, adhere a small piece of transparency over the chipboard butterfly opening, then adhere your pattern paper on top, (now you have a small 'window')....Then, pinching the wings upward, secure the separate chipboard butterfly to the transparency using a dab of hot glue, after adding small wire antennae to the top.   


These little boxes are great for holding little gifts too, there's plenty of room for adding a small treat along with your notecard. 


I wanted to add a small carrying handle so a small white pipe cleaner was the perfect touch. 


The small little notecards inside measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and I used the "Life Cards" for the fronts of the cards.  


The cards are super easy to make, simply cut white cardstock to 5 x 3 1/2, fold in half and set aside.  Cut a piece of pattern paper slightly smaller and adhere to the white card.  Cut out a "Life Card" and adhere to the front, and decorate with small sequin.  I also added a sentiment sticker to the inside.  


I love how simple and fun these mini-notecards came out.  This whole project makes me smile and your recipient will surely love these as well.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project!
