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
Premade Cardboard Box
Cardstock Quality Preprinted Paper
Plain Cardstock Colored Paper
Paper Trimmer or Scissors
Craft Stick for spreading Gorilla Glue
Clamp Type Paper Clips
Things to fill your Stationary Box with.
Step 2: Applying Gorilla Glue
Let sit for a few minutes to become tacky. Have a cup or something handy to stand the stick in when not in use so it does not get glued to your work surface.
Step 3: Plan Your Design
Taking into consideration of how you want to design your stationary box trim the cardstock paper you plan to use to meet the dimensions of your box.
Step 4: Start with the inside of your box
Cut and fold the decorated cardstock to come up about 1/2 inch short of the top rim of the box and to set about 1 inch on the bottom. Press all pieces into place. Allow adequate drying time before continuing.
