Easel Card, Drawer & Box

My calendar says it is Saturday - help - where did the week go???  Among household tasks this week, I was looking through Youtube for something to put a special gift in and came across this video from Paper Craft Button.  The best thing about it was she combined the card with a cute little drawer to put your gift in and also had a box to put it in!!  How cute is that!!  Here's the easel card with its little drawer.

Here's a picture of the box it goes in.

And here is the card and box together.

I just loved how this came together.  Her instructions are very good and it didn't take long to make.  Another great way to use up some scraps of paper and some goodies laying around.  The card and drawer fit perfectly into the box.  After the box is closed, I will probably add a bow with a cute tag to it before I give it away.  I think these would be great cards/boxes to make for some graduations coming up.  You could put money, jewelry, gift cards, etc. in the drawer.  Another plus she pointed out in her video is that you can make a bunch of these and storage is so easy by stacking them up and you're ready to go when the time is right.  Love that!!  Hope everybody is ready for a great 3-day weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
