A Little Note for Audrey

This past weekend I went back to my former church for a celebration of 25 years of music ministry for Audrey, the music liturgist at the parish. For many years I had been a very active member of the music ministry and Audrey became a very good friend. She is someone who lives a grateful life and always counts her blessings. It was wonderful for her and her family to hear from so many about what a blessing she is to them.

As a small token of appreciation, I made a set of 10 note cards and a fun box.

The music staff is from the Swirly Scribbles Framelits. I used a sentiment from Butterfly Gala. The envelope flap was randomly stamped with Sheet Music. I love the Daisy Punch; it creates the perfect spring embellishment.

I messed around with measurements for the box and wound up with 2 pieces of card stock cut at 9 3/4" x 8 1/2, scored at 2" on 2 long sides and 1 short side. I glued those pieces together and made a flap for the top that measure 6 1/2" x 4", scored at 2 1/2" and 4 1/2" and glued the 2" panel to the inside of the box. Leave a comment if you need clarification on any of that.

Along with the box of cards, I included one of my home made cinnamon breads. The package smelled heavenly!

It's especially fun to give a gift when you know it will be appreciated.

  1. Lovely card and box! How did you make the music notes?

    1. Miss Emilie, I used a 3/4" circle punch and a 1/8" sliver of Basic Black for the stem. The small oval punch will work too. Have fun!

  2. I know it's been awhile! I just fond you on Pinterest. But, I donate note cards & envelopes to my local cancer boutique. I don't just make breast cancer cards, I make ALL cancer cards. Encouragement, love, sympathy, you name it. I bundle them as stacks of ten. I would love great directions on how to make your adorable box. I've been looking for quite awhile for a box for these. Can you PLEASE help me? I too am a SU! demonstrator in Fl. I appreciate your help! What a lovely gift you gave your friend. I'm sure she truly loved it!
