Happy 4th of July box set

It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for this week for  the Craft-Dee BowZ ... challenge
The sponsor for this months challenge is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps

I thought I would make a lovely Independence Day set of mini cards and envelopes for my project this month.. I really enjoyed making these cards ,envelopes and matching box to hold them in.
The papers I used are from The works  the 12x 12 pad they came from is called Pretty Red Classics.
I used scalloped  oval and classic  oval spellbinders dies . The banners are dies from memory box. The flowers are stamps from Stampin up .
The envelopes are made using the we are memory keepers envelope punch board. The box was handmade from 2 pieces of A4 cardstock and the finished cards measure 4in x 3in so they are quite small  but I love the idea of a little gift box of cards to give your friends .
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Maker to make the paper bow on top of the box. It is my go to bow maker as it produces perfect single or multi loop bows every time ... with ease ,even with paper ribbon
