Arrange A Wreath Mini Card Pack

Happy Monday and I hope your week is off to a good beginning. Today’s post features an Arrange A Wreath Mini Card Pack. Last week, I was honored to be a guest presenter for a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator group.  Guest presenters share project ideas that can be used for classes or stamping events. As a guest presenter, one’s task is to create a minimum of four projects using a specific stamp set or bundle. Three projects should fall into the card category and the other can be either a 3D or home decor project.  All of my projects featured the Arrange A Wreath Bundle. 

For me, I set a personal challenge.  The challenge of using only the stamps in the stamp set!  When designing projects, I usually pull from several stamp sets.  (my husband calls it “my squirrel mode”! LOL) Fortunately, the wide variety of stamps and dies in the Arrange A Wreath bundle made it easy to adhere to my challenge. The bundle consists of the Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set and the Wreath Builder Dies.  For two of the sentiments, I did use the Layering Circles and Layering Ovals Dies. So today, I’m sharing one of the featured projects – the Arrange A Wreath Mini Card Pack.  The mini card pack consists of four 3″ x 3″ cards for various occasions.

Arrange A Wreath

Tips for creating the mini card pack:
  • All the card bases are Whisper White cardstock, cut 3″ x 6″.  Then, score at 3″ and fold for a size of 3″ x 3″.
  • Select the colors you wish to use on your cards for the various occasions and use coordinating designer series paper to layer on the base.  On the card samples,  the 6″ x 6″ Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack provides the background layer.  Cut the layer to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.
  • Stamp your designs onto 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock to attach to the designer series paper layer.
  • If desired, use the stamps and coordinating dies to add additional elements to your mini cards.  
Bonus Project

Since the mini card pack would make an excellent gift, I decided to add a bonus project – an embellished 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Box.  The greenery for the top of the box uses the “twig” wreath die from the Wreath Builder Dies.  After cutting the wreath shape, use paper snips to cut the wreath in half and layer the two halves.  For extra dimension, sponge ink onto the wreath before cutting.  For the sample below, Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink is sponged onto the Pear Pizzazz cardstock wreath.  Select the sentiment you desire and add it to a banner created with the Banner Pick A Punch.

How to Make a Note Card Box

A couple of weeks ago on my Facebook live demo featuring the Beautiful Butterfly Note Cards, a coordinating box for the note cards was shown.  In this post, I am showing you how to make a note card box for your note cards.  The box comfortably holds four note cards and envelopes.  Depending upon the note card embellishments, you can add up to six note cards.  My box coordinates with the butterfly cards but you can use the box instructions and embellish it to coordinate with your note card designs. 

Note Card Box

Steps for making the box:

  1. Cut card stock 8″ x 10″.  The sample above uses Thick Whisper White card stock.
  2. Use the Simply Scored to score on the 10″ side at 1″, 4-3/4″, 5-3/4″ and 9-1/2″.
  3. Rotate paper and score the 8″ side at 1″, 6-3/8″ and 7-3/8″.Score lines for note card box.
  4. Refer to the directions in the photo below for cutting instructions.Note Box cut lines
  5. After cutting box shape should be as shown below.  Follow steps to trim flaps which helps create a neater fold.Next step for note box
  6. Turn box over so that right side is facing up.  Apply a strip of Tear and Tape along the 1/2″ edge.  Close the box so that the side edges align.Final steps to complete Note Card Box
  7.  Fold bottom and side tab flaps.  Apply a strip of Tear & Tape to the final flap to close the bottom of the box.  To make it easier to open and close the box,  create a notch in the center of the back of the box.
  8. Embellish box as desired.

Box Embellishment to coordinate with the Beautiful Butterfly Note Cards:Butterfly Note Card Box


  1. Cut Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 pieces at 3-1/2″ x 2″ and 2 pieces at 3/4″ x 2″.  Attach the DSP to the lower portion of the box front, back and sides. 
  2. Create a belly band with 1-1/2″ x 11″ Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  Tip: Wrap the cardstock so that it closes in the front so you can cover the “seam” with the sentiment piece.  Slide the belly band so that it is just above the Gingham Gala DSP.
  3. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp a set of butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Use the coordinating wing stamps to stamp the wings using Grapefruit Grove Classic Ink Pad – stamp off onto a scrap paper for a lighter shade.  Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to cut the butterflies.  Save 10% by purchasing it as a bundle.
  4. Stamp the sentiment from the Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Punch with the 2″ circle punch.  Use the 2-1/4″ circle punch to cut the Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala DSP.  Attach the sentiment to the DSP layer using Snail Adhesive.  
  5. Wrap a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon around the box and tie in a knot.  Attach the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  6. Finish embellishing the box by adding the Butterflies and Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins.
