A Stationery Box for Nan Whit

My grandmother is quite spritely for her 80+ years. She’s a jet setter, a facebooker, and can cut a rug like no one’s business. She also still writes letters. She sits with pen and paper and writes to her friends and family, even when she’s vacationing across the great big sea. 

So I thought that it would be rather nice to surprise her with a pretty box filled with handmade cards, envelopes and stamps in celebration of Mother’s Day.

I’ve filled the box with a bundle of simple cards created with Sweet Sentiments with envelopes to fit. Some lightly embellished Artist Trading Tags are affixed with Small Square Glassine Envelopes, filled with stamps. Everything my granny will need to keep in touch with her friends back home as she sits and suns by the pool ;)

There's loads more photos and a walk through to make this box over on the Graphic 45 blog today.
