I currently have very limited time as I work on catching up with the business side of my Stampin’ Up! Business. The Appendectomy has forced me to slow down and while I feel more “energetic” during the day I do find that I’m still getting tired quicker if I overdo things. I have to remind myself to allow my body time to heal even though I am feeling great. The projects I made for this months Paper Pumpkin Kit features four, quick and cute 3×3 Note Cards.

For two of the cards, I cut down a full size card from the kit down to 3×3 because I loved the colors on the front of the cards. The remaining 2 cards are Thick Whisper White cut to 3×3 note card.  Stampin’ Up! also now offers 3×3 Note Card Envelopes in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

With adorable 3×3 Note Cards, you need a cute way to store them! For today’s 3D option, I created a small Note Card Envelope Style Storage Box. The box features Peekaboo Peach Card Stock. I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the box. Elements on the box are from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and I also added Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

Inside the box, I’ve easily fit 4 – 3×3 Envelopes along with the 4 note cards previously showcased.  There is actually room to fit a couple more note cards if I wanted. The 3×3 Note Card Box made with the Envelope Punch Board is one of my favorite, quick boxes to make!
