Tuesday Tutorial - Mini Gift Card Set

Hey friends! I'm so excited to be sharing a really fun and pretty quick project with you. 

Each month I always have occasions where I need a little card - birthdays, new babies, weddings, graduations, etc. And instead of buying cards, I like to make the mini ones. You know, those little gift notes that aren't really cards but are just the right size to tuck into a gift with a "to" and "from". I love a 3x3 size and one day while I was on Lori Whitlock's site, I saw a really cute 3x3 card box. So, I decided to make some cards and the box for storing them in. Now, they're ready when I need one! 

Here is some gift card inspiration for you, along with Lori’s adorable 3x3 stationary box.  
I love all of Lori’s digital cutting files so it’s never hard to find the perfect addition for a card or project. For this one, my favorite part of each card is the sentiment. Lori designed the Happy Birthday, Thank You and Hello pieces with an cute font and a great background piece. The ability to cut a white background allowed each of my sentiments to “pop” off any pattern paper I layered it onto. I also love the cupcake for this card…especially with the little heart cut out.

I've always been a fan of Echo Park … especially the paper and embellishments that Lori designs for them. Most of the papers I’ve used in this card set are from an older collection called “My Girl” Collection. For the card below, I added a fun little branch from the sticker sheet and set an adorable bird up on pop dots for dimension.

For the Thank You card, I used Lori's mason jar cutting file. This design can be used for so many things. I cut the design and then added a flower sticker and brad from the “My Girl” collection and finished it off with a knot of twine.

For the 3x3 box, I cut the file and also created an “inset” shape for each side. After adding the inset accent pieces, I cut one of Lori’s 3D flowers for the front. The flower also serves as a little accent to tuck the tab behind so that the lid stays closed 🙂 So, so cute!

Hope you have as much fun making this as I did!
