Greeting Card Gift Box: Flashback Friday + a SALE announcement today!! Christmas is right around the corner. You know this because you are now bombarded with Christmas commercials. I am a fan of making my gifts instead of buying them and I love to give the gift of hand stamped cards. I also love to create a beautiful DIY gift box to give them in!

Let me share a fun Greeting Card Gift Box: FLASHBACK FRIDAY project. This greeting card gift box will just knock your socks off. It’s such a pretty way to give the gift of love with a fold in the middle.
I created this project last December live on Facebook but lucky you, you get to see the “edited” version! NOTE: The Designer Paper and stamp set are retired BUT the project can be created with your favorite Designer Paper or scrapbook paper. Get creative!
Talk about a gorgeous way to give the gift of hand stamped cards and you can say, “I made it myself!”

I have always found the gift of handmade cards to be one of the best received gifts. I love that people appreciate how nice these cards look over a store-bought card and even thought not everyone likes to make their own greeting cards, they do love to send them.
I hope you will give this simple DIY gift box a try!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! Please stop by tomorrow for a Speedy Delivery Christmas card. You are going to love how easy and fast tomorrow’s card is to make! See you then!
