Fan Fair Card Gift Set

I took one of the papers from the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper Pack and cut out some of the great images to make a box of cards that would be great for any time you want to send a special message.

I added all five cards to this gift box that was made using card stock and designer paper.

The cards were all made with a card base of Soft Suede card stock.  I then cut some of my favorite images from the Designer Paper and layered them on with coordinating card stock.  Some ribbon, a few punches, and embellishing of the card stock, and I created this box of note cards that were kept simple because I think this makes a nice gift box of cards that can now be used for many occasions.
To make the box which fits these five A2 sized cards I used the following dimensions:
For the bottom of the box - Card stock was cut to measure 8 3/4" x 7 1/2" and scored at 1 1/2" on all sides.  I cut a slit on each corner so I could fold in the edges and adhere them to make the box.
For the top -  Designer Series Paper was cut to measure 7 7/8" x 6 5/8" and scored at 1" on all sides. 
A slit was cut again in each corner to make the fold to create the box. 
I used Sticky Strip to keep my corners together.
The following were used:
