Retirement Gift Project

Hello awesome bloggers!  Today's post is the gift I made for my 'retiring' friend!  Before you scroll down, guess what is inside!  I you read this blog regularly, you would have seen something similar on a previous post!

 The lid is off...still wondering?

Yes, it is a stationery box, partially made from an SEI template.  A few modifications were made to make this one my own:  Loopy ribbon, scalloped edges everywhere.  I has three pockets, address book, pen holder and pocket for postage stamps! 

Address book open...

Pocket in the back will hold A2 cards perfectly or even 5x5's.  The left pocket is the perfect size for a 3x3 pad of sticky notes, or a stack of gift cards.

Six greeting cards were made for use on any occasion and placed into the back pocket.  They are blank inside.

The outside view with layered flowers and bling from Prima.  The box bling is from Hobby Lobby.

If any of you out there are Quick Quotes fans, the papers used for this project are from an old Quick Quotes line called Bandana-Rama.  The colors are just so cheery!

Quick Quotes products are really the main reason I fell in love with scrapbooking!

Stop by the blog any time!  Be Inspired!
