My newest favorite gift idea: personalized note cards. And my favorite place to find them is in our Ellinée shop! So many beautiful choices and the thick eggshell paper is divine. I wanted to find a clever DIY way to package these little gifts, so I found an origami box pattern that looked promising. With a bit of sizing and adjusting, I made a paper box that perfectly fits 20 note cards and 20 A2 envelopes. Below is the tutorial on how to make a box for your note cards along with the link to the PDF for the box with a light grey quatrafoil pattern. Print this template on a tabloid sheet (11X17) on either card stock or text weight paper. I used the lighter paper on my project. You can easily print on the other side of the paper, which will be the inside of the box, with a color to match your cards by using a design software or even Microsoft Word. I finished my package with a colorful Baker’s Twine from The Twinery, that holds the matching gift tag. The results: a perfect package for a lovely gift. Enjoy~Lia
