Stationary Box & Matching Cards

I made this stationary box and cards for a friend for Christmas. Blue is her favourite colour. I found the template on a template website under the name 'Treasure Box'. (Because of the amount of time that has passed, I don't remember which one...if I find it again, I will give proper credit.)

Here is a close-up of the box. The paper was from a Close To My Heart Heart of Winter campaign a couple of years ago...the Serendipity Project Pack. (It came with B&T paper, CS, CS shapes, and a stamp set.) I didn't get a measurement of the final size, but it holds 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards and envelopes.

I made a second stationary box and card set to trade for some 3x3 envelopes, (thank-you Sandy!!!). On Sandy's, I clear embossed the flower on the front, which made it stand out even more.
Here's a view of what the box looks like opened.
I used the textured cs flowers that came with the Serendipity Paper Pack on the inside of the lid.

I made 6 cards to go in the box (card size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The sentiments on all the cards are clear embossed so that they 'pop'.
