A Paper Anniversary

This is a boxful of Greetings cards made for a 1st (Paper) Anniversary.  The box of 15 square cards are very simple and uncluttered designs.  The  cards include some Birthdays, Thank you, Anniversary & Best Wishes for a young couple to use.  They are so busy these days that I thought a box of handmade cards would be quite useful-and of course it is PAPER!        
The 3-D butterfly is a favourite Peel-Off and makes a very pretty card.  All of the cards are 125mms square and have insert papers in them printed with an appropriate message. 
I have made use of Cuttlebug embossing folders too to create interesting but simple backgrounds and layers for the designs.   Organza ribbon adds a soft finishing touch to most of these cards too, with Diamond  Stickles added at the very end-so it cannot be smudged!

The box lid was made from a silver foiled wedding 12 x 12 paper I had, and i tied organza ribbon around it and added a simple tag in the colourscheme of their Wedding Day to finish it off.
TOP TIP - A box of handmade greetings cards can be a welcome gift for many occasions - some one who is busy working, or housebound or disabled would enjoy giving handmade cards.  You could add a book of stamps and a special pen to complete the gift too!
