Simply Stamps

For my Simply Stamps project today, I made a card gift box.  Because I have soooo many cards, I usually end up "boxing" up 10-12 cards, and giving them as gifts.  What better way then to use a decorated "recycled" cigar box.

 While I kept my box pretty basic, the potential to add layers, embellishments etc, is endless.

along with a few of the Color Box Archival Dye Inks, and randomly stamped the images on a panel of white card stock.

Using plain red washi tape, I adhered the panel to the top of the cigar box.

I continued to wrap the box with designer paper, and more washi tape to finish off covering the entire box.
Like I said, basic, but it definitely works!

And, as an added bonus, I was able to use my new personalized Printer 15 self-inking stamp, on the back of all my cards!

Using Simple Stamps products to make my project worked out perfectly!  Pop on over and check out all the products SS carries.  There is an amazing selection~
