This was a great kit to work with. I  used the white lace with some Glimmer Mist to alter to the color I desired. I  also  used the turquoise loop braid, this color is fabulous!

Ever wonder if you can do something a bit fancier than a card with just one sheet of 8.5×11 paper or cardstock?  Well, I am here to tell you, YOU CAN!

Here is the little project we will be working on.  Is it cute?



  • 1 sheet of pattern cardstock or plain cardstock (8.5×11)(I am using Harmonie Loisirs PP)
  • 1 scrap of paper to stamp your greeting on
  • Greeting Stamp (I am using Daisy Bucket “I love your face” stamp from SNS’ store)
  • Ribbon
  • buttons
  • tape or glue 
  • dimensional pop dots (optional)
  • scor-pal (optional, but I love mine)



  1. With the short side of your piece of cardstock (8.5×11) to the top of your Scor-pal, score at 2.5 AND 6 inches.  (If not using Scor-Pal, score at 2.5 and 6 at the short side.
  2. Turn your paper around and now with your long side to the top of your Scor-pal, score at 4.5 AND 6.5 inches.  (If not using Scor-Pal, score 4.5 and 6.5 at the long side.
  3. Pre-fold all sides using your bone folder.  You want a good crease.
  4. Bring the horizontal fold to the vertical fold. and crease.  You are creating a diagonal fold.  Do this on all four sides.  Make sure you crease well those folds.
  5. Prefold the box by bringing the diagonal folds towards the box center. (so you know where to put your sentiment).
  6. Stamp your sentiment and color it on a piece of scrap paper.  Glue or add dimensional pop dots to the image into the front of the box.
  7. Fold the box, you don’t need to add glue (but I did add to mine to keep it a bit more sturdier)
  8. Put the flaps together and punch two holes (both flaps at the same time) to thread the ribbon through. 
  9. Thread ribbon and tie some buttons to the ribbon.  

Special thanks to Beate Johns for such a great idea and tutorial, at Split Coast Stampers.
