Cool Beans: Papertrey Stationery Kits

I decided to make something special for my sisters' birthdays (that's right, they're twins) this year.  I adored Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink's stationery project and tutorial, shown here.  They took a bit of time (there's a lot here) but weren't terribly difficult.  The results were amazing.  My sisters each received a monogrammed stationery set and seals, adorable contrasting papers which were cut to fit the cigar box, envelope flaps and the tin for the seals and postage.  The really fun part was showing off how each sheet of stationery was unique.  I highlighted one set with Butterfly Kisses and the other with Spiral Bouquet, each stamped in a slightly different position and a small range of matching colors.  Frankly, my biggest challenge was trying to find binding tape to cover the edges.  I ended up striking out and made the side panels on the box a touch longer to cover S73003301
further to the corners (about 6 1/8" wide).  Then I used Close to Cocoa and Basic Brown to distress the edges and corners of the box both before AND after adhering the paper.  Just a note regarding the template for lining up the circle/monogram on the stationery sheets, it should measure 5.5" x 2" (rather than 1" as listed).  That way you can use the 1 3/8" circle punch per the instructions. 

Hugs and Pretties,  M
