Tiny Gift Card Box and Cards Using Tim Holtz's Sizzix Curio Box Bigz Die and Vintage Christmas Carols Booklet

I would like to thank Zoe Hillman (Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook Group Creator) for the wonderful idea of using the Sizzix Curio Box Bigz Die as a tiny card box!  I've had so much fun making different box tops and cards to go inside, but this one, by far, is my favorite.  This one was so fun, I thought I'd share the graphics in case someone else wants to create one. Please note:  This is not a step by step tutorial, it's just a share of the graphics and what I used to make my box and cards.

Several years ago, I found a booklet that was published in 1958 titled "The Voice of Firestone, Favorite Christmas Carols".  I scanned the sheet music and shared it on Pinterest for other paper crafters to use if they'd like.  Over the years, I've used the sheet music copies quite a bit but it dawned on me this year to use the sheet music for my tiny Curio Box cards!  I used the scanned cover of the booklet and sheet music within, resized them and made my little gift card box. I also scanned the back cover of the booklet and used that on the back of my box.  The scanned photos are shared here:

To create the gift card boxes, you'll need:
Sizzix Bigz Die - Curio Box
140 lb. Heavy Cardstock or Watercolor Paper for the box
110 lb Watercolor Paper for the Cards (measure 2-1/4" x 3-1/4")
90 lb Mixed Media Paper for the Envelopes (measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2")
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to make the envelopes
The graphics provided here (just right click the photos above, save or copy and use).
Any dies you have that you'd like to use to decorate the box top and cards. 
I used Heartfelt Creations Poinsettias and Tim Holtz's Sizzix Holiday Greens and Holiday Greens Mini.
I also used the distress splatter brush and white gesso afterwards to make light snowy splatters.

Also included inside the box was a scanned copy of the first inside page of this little booklet.
If you're interested, there are uploaded YouTube videos of the old Voice of Firestone radio/tv program!

If you decide to make one of these little boxes, I'd love to see a photo.

Have fun creating!

Hugs & Blessings,
