stationery gift box

I told you I was going to take things slow this week. Well I stuck to that rather surprisingly well—so I hope you excuse my absence. If I'm completely honest I wish I could disappear for a month. It would be so nice to just go and drop everything work related. I think I'm getting into one of those bi-yearly "I need a break" moods and fortunately my wish will be granted in a few days when we go on our long awaited vacation. Yes!

So...

I've been taking it really easy and work has been a bit on the back burner which makes this week's freebie a bit different. I didn't get any response with the posting of butterfly projects and I get it... it's the summer (at least in this part of the hemisphere), vacations are happening and family time is more of a priority, etc. etc. I'm going to undust my A Little Hut Projects Flickr group where you can post and share a photo of your A Little Hut project whenever you'd like. I'll accept anything that is related to my tutorials or my shop goodies that you've used. So feel free to join at any time and I can't wait to see what you post!

This week's freebie is really a giveaway of my latest Stationery Gift Box (I love, love it!) that will be open until Sunday at 8pm (central). If you'd like to participate just leave a comment here and let me know something about yourself—anything that you'd like to share. I'd love to hear from many of you. I will randomly select 5 winners and make the winners announcement on Monday. Sound good?

GIVEAWAY!Stationery Gift Box
I love how this project can be used in so many ways! I can see it being used as a hostess gift, a get well kit (tea bags, yes?), a DIY card making kit for someone crafty in your life (buttons, brads, ribbons, blank cards?), a memory box of cards you've received, and so much more. There's a gift card insert in this set too! You'll still have room to include some candy or other trinkets to make your gift more personalized. Do you want your gift to be visible? Use the window box. Do you prefer to close off the whole box and decorate the outside? Use the decorative frame box. Both are included!

I'm going to make one of these for a birthday party that we will be going to on Sunday. I'll share on Monday!

Have a wonderful (crafty?) weekend everyone!

  1. Just love this gift box, thank you for the chance to win. My little fact is that I get so caught up in just "playing" with my crafting supplies I rarely get anything actually made.

  2. Love the stationery box! I have OCD, obsessive crafting disorder. Never met a craft I didn't want to try:)

  3. A wonderful give-away, thanks a lot! :) I really like your delicate paper work, it's so inspiring!

    I just finished reading the complete collection of the Sherlock Holmes storys. "I am a brain, Watson. The rest of me is a mere appendix." Love that quote! :)

  4. I'm running a stationery & note card swap and my note card design is heavily influenced by your work (neon bright flower cutouts, cut with my Silhouette, on a white background, framed by a matching color block, layered onto a white card). It would be fantastic to put everything into one of your stationery boxes!

    And, I hadn't even thought about including little extra bits (I have plenty of spare flowers from cutting the stationery, and could include some blank tags, too!).

    Oh, my... now I really hope I'm lucky :)

  9. Yummy giveaway! Thanks!

    Something about me: to cut, to glue, to fold, to... *anything* with paper is my favourite thing at the present time... I keep exploring sites and blogs and flickr and pinterest boards and facebook with so many wonderful ideas and objects and figures and artwork and useful stuff! A Little Hut has been an inspiration!

    Good luck everyone!

  11. Love this divided box. My dh SURPRISED me last month by giving me a Cameo for my birthday. While I've been getting to know my machine, I've been creating a long wishlist of designs. Thanks for offering such wonderfully creative designs and for the chance to win this neat little gift box.

  12. I love the divided box! My favorite of your products must be the magnolia flower. It looks soooo good popped up on a black gift box. Simple yet very stunning!

    I started following your blog when I bought your book when I visited the US in 2010... Still love it!

  15. I've loved your style for years. It's clean cut and simple but awesome. The stationery box is very cool. Maybe something that could be mass produced even :)

  16. I can see many fun possibilities with these gift boxes. They would make a great scavenger hunt start up kit, I love your get well idea, and the flowers inspired me to think about making it a garden kit gift with seeds and a journal. I am also in the middle of a summer pen pal exchange with my 9 year old niece. I could put something together for her in this box that would knock her little socks off.

  17. I'm so glad that you posted this! I have followed your blog and projects for a while now, and I love your clean and graphic style. Let's see...my fun fact is that I am a psychologist and I don't usually get to see an immediately gratifying result to my work...so I love paper crafting because I can create something in an evening or a few hours and from start to finish, enjoy the process AND the result!

    Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  18. Wow! I love your stationary gift box. Such a fun idea! I've always loved crafting, and lately I've been trying a lot of different types: knitting, sewing, cross-stitch, embroidery and paper crafting. It's all so much fun! Thanks for the great giveaway :)

  19. My favorite paper craft projects are votive holders. I love to see light inside paper (using those safe pretend ones, of course). But I can also use all the organizing I can get, so I would love to win this stationery box pattern and use it for my supplies and finished things.

  22. I really love the gift box. My best friend gave me a silhouette cameo and i havent even begun to use it to its full potential to be honest i think i am a little intimidated. A friend of mine found your site for me and you have inspired me to to more.

  27. This gift box would be the perfect start for a set of cards I want to make and donate for a raffle for one of our women's shelters. Something about me is that I read every post, but seldom comment (sorry). If I did, I'd never have time to read every post. LOL! Thanks for your inspiration.

Pls. keep up the good inspirations flowing.

  34. I think your paper creations are amazing! I was so thrilled to see your butterfly post as we are just about to start a butterfly home "theme" so the timing was perfect!
    Thanks for all of the inspiration you send out into the world!

  40. Love the box...what a great gift to give to someone. I have so many projects to do that I think I could do my crafting full time for several years and not get it all done. I have lots of paper I need to go through...so making cards for others (with a nice gift box) will be perfect. Enjoy your vacation!

  44. Hello! Cute stationery box you created, Patricia! If I were to win it, I'd *HAVE* to get a Cameo so I can create it in the 12x12" paper size! LOL!

    So "Pick Me!" :-)

    Okay, something about myself...Okay, you know that triangle Peg game you see at The Cracker Barrel that's on every one of their tables? I can leave one peg...in the original empty spot. Yes, just *ONE* of many many talents! Um...NOT really! ;-)

  45. Love your work and would so love to win a set. Wonderful ideas for all the different boxes. I've crafted myself right out the last couple of days with baby shower gifts, graduations etc...all paper crafted of course. Phew, glad to have a little breather.

  46. This would be an exciting prize to win since I have never tried paper crafting before.
    In high school, I taught myself to throw pots on a wheel. I had seen a reenactment at Sturbridge as a child and was fascinated by that ancient craft.

  50. Hi, Patricia. I'm been reading your blog for a long time and I just love to make things with fabric or paper. Currently, I'm making a little dress every day for a year---of course, I still do other projects, too. I used your leaves background to make the most beautiful banner for a birthday party.
