If there's anything I like better than laser-cut lace paper, it's laser-cut lace CARDS! I literally squee'd when I saw this beautiful tin and cards in the new catalog. I LOVE that the bases are pre-cut and folded, that the envelopes are scalloped to match, that you can add color to the back of the lace using any color of cardstock you want--I love it all!
The tin itself is pretty, too--a peachy Petal Pink, with leafy branches in a coppery finish, and the perfect size for A-2 cards. You're meant to get the set, decorate the cards, tie up the tin with pretty ribbon and have an AMAZING gift for less than $20. WOW!
Here's the first of my designs that I am going to put in my tins. Wouldn't you just love receiving a gorgeous gift of cards like that? I am excited to come up with more layouts that showcase the laser-cut lace, and to come up with tags for my tins. What a fantastic gift idea!
Do you give handmade cards as gifts? I like to take it up to the next level and make the packaging as pretty as the cards. If you need something even easier than decorating a tin, check out these great acetate boxes for 4-8 cards and envelopes. I also have a really great free pattern for an 8.5x11 One Sheet Stationery Box that holds 4-5 cards with zero wasted cardstock.
I'm off to go work on my gifts some more. I somehow missed Teacher Appreciation week entirely this year, so I have some over-due thanks to give out. I'm also thinking I'll make up a tin of glamorous thank you cards for a wedding shower I'm attending. I keep thinking of excuses to get more of these, can you tell? : )
