Bitty Box and Envelope set

Stampin' Up has this cute little Bitty Box and envelope Die to use on the Big Shot. The envelope holds a card 2x2" so it would make a really cute gift card.
These are all the new In Colors for this year in textured cardstock that I just love. The box is made from 4 7/8 x 7 1/8 cardstock. Trick to getting 4 pieces out of 12x 12 cardstock is cut down using your scorer/cutter at 4 7/8 down to 7 1/8, then rotate 90 degrees and do the same thing 4 times and you will have a little square in the center left over but 4 perfect pieces for the box die.
The envelope is made with a plain copy paper folded into quarters and run it through once to get 4 envelopes at one time. Stamp the envelope and white CS using the Circle Circus Stampset in melon and Bermuda Bay. The Cards are 12x12 Textured cardstock cut into 2x4 pieces for each card folded into half to make 2x2 cards. Stamped Just for you from Teeny Tiny Wishes set with basic black, a strip of Rich Razzleberry and a skinny strip of suede CS to make the stems and then circles stamped in curry, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo punch out with circle punches and mount using dimensionals.

The box circles are mounted on some melon mambo cardstock punched with Boho Blossoms Punch. Tie with melon mambo polka dot ribbon and a cute little gift cards and box for you and/or your friends!
