Boxed Stationary Set of Monogrammed Cards

Do you like giving homemade gifts because they can be personalized? Were you aware that Close to My Heart carries these sweet little round initial stamps in all letters?  Aren 't they elegant? I love that I can put a quick little gift together by using this stamp set.

I discovered these cute little stamps when I was looking through the stamp sets that coordinate with our Cricut cartridges.  We are so lucky that our company understands that crafting can be time consuming and whenever we can save a few minutes--we appreciate it greatly!  Our unique Cricut cartridges coordinate with quite a few of our stamp sets. The Monogram Initial stamps coordinate with the circle shape on Artiste P. 48.

I used the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the stationary box and used 3 X 3 cards for the stationary.  I think 3 x 3 cards are perfect for kids.  The room to write isn't overwhelming and it would work for a quick thank you or thinking of you note. The paper pack is from CTMH and it is from the Kaleidoscope line.

Card Box:
1) Artiste Page 52(3D Object) cut at 3" Score and Assemble
2) Cuts for decorating box front: Poppy card stock: 3.75"X 3", Kaleidoscope: 3.5"X 2.5", Poppy Shimmer Trim 5" and Poppy Thick Twine 5"
3) To the close the box lid-I used a hook and loop dot.

Monogrammed Cards:
1) Base: 3"x 3"White card stock
2) Adhere 3" x 3" Kaleidoscope to Base
3) 2 3/4" 2 3/4" Green/White Kaleidoscope Back
4) 2" x 2" Poppy Cardstock
5) 1 3/4" X 1 3/4" White card stock with edges sponged in Pear

Monogrammed Circle Accents:
1) Cut star circle from Artiste P. 35 at 1 1/2" out of Poppy card stock
2) Cut circle from Artiste P. 48 at 1 1/2" out of White Card stock
3) Stamp initial in Pear ink

Bow Accent:
1) Place two flag Glitter Triangles on sides and add gem to center
