When I was growing up my grandmother always kept a stationary box filled with all sorts of pretty things to write with.

This box of treasures was always a source of fascination. There were special pens and writing implements, lacy paper with feminine designs, special stamps, little wax candles and stamps to imprint a special seal, even a tiny bottle of perfume for those extra special ones and anything else you would want to send the kind of letters that would be cherished and remembered.

This is my version of Grandma's Stationary Box.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

Premade Cardboard Box
Cardstock Quality Preprinted Paper
Plain Cardstock Colored Paper
Paper Trimmer or Scissors
Gorilla Glue
Craft Stick for spreading Gorilla Glue
Clamp Type Paper Clips

Things to fill your Stationary Box with.
