Tropical Party Pendant Notes gift box...

At my stamp camp, we decorated three Pendant Notes like this and made a box (shown below) to hold them.

I borrowed the idea from, except she used the Fresh Cuts notecards and used a notecard for the top of her box.
My stampers could use any of the embossing folders (Polka Dots, Square Lattice, Finial Press) for the front of their three notecards. Then they stamped the flower from Tropical Party, cut it out and adhered it with a brad before adding a 4" square piece of Island Oasis paper inside.
The sentiment is from the Sock Monkey stamp set, and was punched with the Word Window punch, then layered on a Modern Label Punch.
For the envelopes, we used more Island Oasis paper snailed to the flaps to really make it look like a boxed set that belonged together.
We made the box from Rose Red and Whisper White card stocks. We used SNAIL to hold the Old Olive satin ribbon to the sides of the lid, then embellished the top with a square scallop (die for the Big Shot) in Pumpkin Pie, a 4" square piece of Island Oasis paper, and flowers and leaves from the Summer Mini die called Island Floral, with an ice rhinestone brad in the center.
My box of cards will be a teacher's gift. The end of school is fast approaching!
