Hi Stampers:
This is an exciting day!  It's SUDSOL BLOG TOUR DAY!!  I get to tell you about SUDSOL and show you a project that I created from instructions in the VAST SUDSOL projec files!!  SUDSOL is 15 years old and I think I have been a member for about 14 years.  SUDSOL is the 24/7 Upline for EVERY Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  If you want to try SUDSOL for 2 weeks, click on THIS LINK and you'll be taken to my referral link.
On to my project for today!!  In the SUDSOL Creative area I had been looking for an envelope style box to hold 5-1/2" X 4-1/4" cards and envelopes.  One of our creative members posted a tutorial of just such a box, so I read the tutorial, wrote down the measurements and went to work!  And here's what I created:

 This box is so easy to create with the Simply Scored tool plus the Diagonal Score Board.  The finished box is 6-1/2" wide by 5" high and is almost 1-1/2" deep.  You start with a 12 X 12 piece of cardstock or Designer Paper & cut to 11" X 11", scored, folded, adhered together and voila!--a darling card box for a gift or to keep to store cards.  It will hold at least 4 cards plus envelopes, and I actually was able to put 6 in it for a test.  To go along with the box, I created 4 matching cards:

You'll notice I used the same type of medallion on the cards as I used on the box.  The flap of the box is held closed by tucking it behind the medallion.  Here's a close-up of the medallion:

And here's a list of supplies for this project:

12 X 12 Core'Dinations card stock in Primrose Petals
81/2 X 11 Primrose Petals card stock
Very Vanilla card stock
Tea for Two Designer Series Paper
Oh, Hello stamp set (I used the clear mount)
Primrose Petals and Early Espresso Ink pads

Ovals Framelits
Basic Pearl jewels
