Gift Note cards and Box

I'm always looking for something other than a bottle of wine to bring to someone's home when invited for dinner or weekend visits. What if they don't drink wine? Well, what about a little box of 3x3" note cards to add to gifts they may give. Of course it helps to know the hosts a little. We have friends whose home decor incorporates some beautiful asian watercolors. 

card ingredients: Great Impressions Lily stamp for the note cards,
Susan's Garden Lily by Sizzix for Lily on box top, Verve Sentiment,
Spellbinders crown circle, copic markers, Pebbles Inc., Metallic Cream Chalks.
(I used a clementine crate mesh cover from the grocery store as a stencil 
for the gray pattern on the bottom of note cards)

Box bottom:  9”x9” sq scored at 1½” 3”, 6”, 7½” turn and score same

Box Lid:  5⅝” x5⅝” sq scored at ⅝” and 1¼” on all four sides
Add some kind of glue to secure tabs and to keep the folds in place

Oh so lovely Angela. Who wouldn't love this as a hostess gift? Love your tutorial on that box.
I also try to make gift box's with cards to give to a special friend and have on hand when needed. I think they always appreciate the work that goes into them.
