I’m excited to share todays peek at our next new template! I hope you keep an open mind at the possibilities this one has to offer as well. I will, of course be filling your brain with creative ways to utilize this as the days go on (HOPEFULLY!).

You can NEVER have enough great ways to package your card creations, and sets! Its the gift that keeps on giving, and perfect to keep on hand for any occasion. I hope this template will peak your interest. I know one of the most popular, well received, handmade gift items that I personally make are my card sets. I am always trying new ways to present my sets, and this box is a keeper.

With all that being said, here is a  peek at our next My Timeless Template: Desk Top Stationery!


Petal Pink Set

I printed my template onto chocolate cardstock, then cut, scored, and assembled.

In this box there are 8 A2 size, well embellished cards, with stamped envelopes to match! The box was designed to match the cards that are inside, perfectly!

Now the main purpose for this template wasn’t JUST for boxing up some pretty cards. It is meant to store your cards or stationary sets, on a desk or area out in the open. We work hard to make pretty packaging, why not make it so its not stuffed in a drawer, but a functional part of the room, office or creative space of the receiver? Maybe remind them of the note they are suppose to send off.

Think of the person’s room decor, and design it to match!

This particular gift set is going to Alexa’s 1:1 aide, who I love to pieces.

Now let me share my details with you


You can see the 2 designs that are included in this box set.

Each card uses the same elements. There are 8 in a set. 2 different designs. So, 4 of each design. Envelopes stamped to match. Each card also has different sentiments from the sets Floral Frenzy, flower garden sentiments, and Butterfly Kisses


Here is set #1 Birthday Wishes, thanks sow much, Get Well Wishes, and we also have I’m here for you.


Now onto set #2


I’m not big on mass production, but these were fun! I think they are just SO pretty too. But not over the top busy.

Now, a more close up view


Each set uses the same pieces, just arranged differently. I like doing that. Keeps it balanced too.

 A die cut label from dark chocolate, that is stamped with Floral Frenzy in white craft ink. The petals are colored with a Prisma Color Pencil. Gives a nice look I think. Sentiments vary, an are also stamped in white. Some of the petals on each flower, and the leaf is cut away, so the white peeks through. I am totally in LOVE with that look. Then the perfect touch, my signature-a vellum butterfly. I have to use butterflies with every release! It’s my thing 😀 Then the finished card is spritzed with some chocolate ink.

I think this set is just SO pretty! I hope you do too. You can get started on the cards while you wait for the 15th to order 😀

Now should I share what else you can use this template for?

OK! One more peek!!

How about a treat holder?


Pretty Pirouettes Package

All you have to do is flip it, and you have a super cute treat holder!

I used Snowflakes for this set.

I don’t know about you but I LOVE Pirouette Sticks. They fit perfectly in this container too.These are filled with white chocolate. It was SO hard to not eat them during this packaging venture. OMW! I used about 1/2 my container for this little treasure.

Its packaged goodies like this that make such nice “for no reason” surprise, or inexpensive gifts for the mailman, secretary, or anyone else you may want to acknowledge. Maybe you have a large group of people in an office? Sam’s Club sells these in bulk, for a pretty good deal, so I think I’m going to go get some this week for gifts 😀 Jay likes to give things out to his staff and this may just do thr trick in time for the holiday. I like that its not Christmas, entirely, in case there are other reilgious preferences in the group.

 For freshness sake, I did put mine in a gusset bag (stamped with my white stazon, and glitter sprinkled onto the bag) and tied the top.


I used the optional notch cut out so that my bag doesn’t get squished.

Now for the details-


As you can see, this entire design was inspired by my little 2/$1.00 ornaments I got at Michaels last week! It makes the perfect little embellishment keepsake for an extra $0.50! It matched my Ocean Tides cardstock to perfection!! I punched a white vellum snowflake, and tied through some white polka dot ribbon. The scallop border is a Fiskars punch, and is done in shimmery white.

So there you have it!  One template, 2 totally different uses! Wait until you see what else I have done with it 😀

More on that later! I have 2 projects that I could scream over 😀

Thank you, as always for taking the time to check in with me here. I so enjoy the excitement that builds, and you amazing emails and comments.

Tomorrow I have more template ideas, as the team shares a group post! So don’t miss that.

More creative ideas today on Nichole’s blog, as well as Lisas.
