Gift Idea: Card Storage Box
Close to My Heart makes this great memory box - a really nice quality white cardboard with a magnetic closure on the flap. Choose a coordinating paper pack and embellishments and decorate the outside top and sides of the box. Make a selection of cards using the paper pack to fill the box. It's nice to use a variety of sentiments - perhaps some birthday, anniversary, get well, sympathy, thinking of you... so the person receiving this can use it for many occasions. The two pockets on the top flap inside are great to add some envelopes and stamps into. Reinforce the top edge of the pocket. You might even put a pretty pen in the box, and now you have a complete gift to give to someone special. The nice thing about this gift, is next time, you can just make up a card pack for the recipient as a gift, and they have this beautiful box to store them in! It's so easy to create a completely different feel to the box and cards by choosing a different set of coordinating papers.
