Take Flight 20 – Day 5, An Elegant Note Box

February 8, 2013
Take Flight Twenty Penny Black
For the last four days, we’ve featured creations from some of our talented designers, and today is no different.  .  . today we have quite a treat from Elizabeth Allan – a very detailed step-by-step tutorial for this gorgeous notepaper box made from materials you most likely have in your paper crafting arsenal. Amazing!
Cut 2 pieces of mat board for the front and back covers of the box and one for the spine.
Stamp Glory of Modesty on cream cardstock with Crimson Pearlescent Brilliance ink.  Spray with Gold Psst Sheer Shimmer Spritz to add glitzy glimmer.
Position, center and adhere the mat boards to the back of the stamped paper leaving 1/8″ between the covers and the spine.  Wrap the cardstock around the edges of the mat board to create a finished edge.
To finish the inside, stamp Indian Wheel in Wheat VersaMagic on cream cardstock and adhere to the mat boards covering the raw edges wrapped around from the previous step.
Create an open-faced box from recycled cardboard.  Prime the surface with Gesso and then paint with gold metallic acrylic paint.
Adhere the finished box to the inside right panel of the book and fill with note paper.
Stamp Love Chapter in Smokey Gray VersaFine across the bottom of a small piece of white cardstock.  Ink the edges with Peanut Brittle Memento ink.  Adhere to a slightly larger piece of mat board edged with Crimson Pearlescent Brilliance ink.  Attach to the front of the note box with Power Adhesive Tabs.
Stamp Kisses in the Sun on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color and trim the image.  Attach with dimensional foam tape.  Accent the butterfly and flowers with Star Dust Stickles.
Finished size:  5/8 x 3 ½ x 4

    I don’t normally get time to comment but today I just had to. This is stunning, it looks so luxurious and expensive.

    This is beautiful – I love Pearlescent Crimson and Wheat Versamagic – two of my favourite inks – and those two stamps, Glory of Modesty and Indian Wheel, are stunning! It’s a great little project. Thank you so much for sharing. Now I just need someone to send me a Graham Crackers box, he, he – though I’m sure I can find a substitute here in the UK. Cath x

    Great project! Thanks for the fab tutorial.

  19. February 8, 2013 3:10 am

    A treat indeed. I love the way the background pattern extends along the back & the spine giving such lovely continuity & further enhanced by the way the flower in the main image panel echoes the background florals. The beautiful finishing of the inside with another stamped pattern reminds me of the papers one used to find on the insides of old books. The script stamping with the flower & butterfly are timeless classic images that work so well together & I love the way the butterfly forms a bridge from the background paper to the main panel. The edging of that main panel so it ties in with the background of the whole little box is wonderful.
    A real treat this morning.
    Thank you

    Total WoW ! First, I realy like this box that looks like a book. Thank you Elizabeth for the step-by-step tutorial : – ) I love the design of the front of the note box which could be use for making a card. I also enjoy the twist of the Kisses in the Sun stamp ; – ) very crafty ! A touch of Stickles always does something for me. I love bling but not too much and this is what we get. Everything about this notepaper box Is so charming. And I believe it whispers . . . summer . . .
