Stationery Box Gift Set

Posted by Amy Helms on


You guys asked for this tutorial and I hope you find it easy to follow and answers your questions.  This project has been made a good bit on youtube and blogs so you may want to do a search around to see other inspiration for the box as well.

There are lots of cuts and measurements.  I am going to list them here as simply as I can.  If you make this project like eating an elephant (one bite at a time, lol) you will be successful.

Cuts, Measures and Scores

Base of the box: 10 x 12 inch cardstock, scored on the 10 inch side at 3/4, 2, 8 and 9 1/4 inches. Turn and score the 12 inch side at 5 and 7 inches.

Large card divider:  8 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock, scored on the 8 1/2 inch side at 1 1/4, 7 1/4 turn an score on the 4 1/4 inch side at 3 inches.

Note card divider:  5 1/2 x 2 inch cardstock scored at 1/2, 1, 4 1/2, 5 inches.

Tag divider:  4 1/2 x 2 inch cardstock, scored at 1/2, 1, 3 1/2 and 4 inches.

Box Lid:  6 1/8 x 10 1/8 cardstock, scored on the 6 1/8 side at 2 and 4 1/8, on the 10 1/8 inch side score at 2 and 8 1/8 inch.

Notebook:  6 1/8 x 3 1/2 inch cardstock, scored on the 6 1/8 inch side at 3 1/8 and 3 1/4 inces.

Cards for inside of the pockest dimensions:

A2 Greeting cards are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 when folded, the back pocket will hold 6 to 8 with envelopes.

Notecards are 3 x 3 when folded and it will hold 6 to 8 of them with envelopes.

Tags are 3 1/2 by 2 3/8 and it will hold 6 to 8 of them.


Back, front, inside flap and inside pocket (back) mat:  4 3/4 x 5 3/4 (qty 4)

Back sides: 1 x 4 3/4 (qty 2)

A2 Card Divider mat:  5 3/4 x 2 3/4 (qty 1)

Notecard Divider mat:  1 3/4x 3 1/4 (qty 1)

Tag divider mat:  1 3/4 x 2 1/4 (qty 1)

Front sides:  1 3/4 x 4 3/4 (qty 4)


Top Mat:  1 7/8 x 5 7/8 (qty 1)

Lid front and back 1 3/4 x 5 7/8 (qty 2)

Lid sides 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 (qty 2)

To make assembly and decorator card stock placing easier I made myself a "template box."  I just used some simple card stock and created the project so that I could use it for reference and write my mat measures directly on the template.  I feel that will make future projects easier, especially since I plan to make these as Christmas gifts, it will give me a quick reference.

This is what it looks like:

  • Just finished my box. So glad I followed your advise and added A, B,C etc., to my layers. Instead of the little note book I put an extra side pocket facing outwards on the left hand side (with the stamp pocket placed like you did yours), so I can slide some loose note papers into it. Once again thank you for a fabulous tutorial.

  • Thank you. Your tutorials are fabulous. You make them so easy to follow.

  • Fabulous. Thank you. I am in the process of making cards and notelets etc. and was wondering what type of box to put them in and came across your tutorial, just what I needed.

  • Looking forward to my next crop as hostess together with my friend to do this project. We just hosted in June our crop and we did your explosion album box and it was a success. Everyone enjoyed making it very much. Thank you for the inspiration.
