Inspired Correspondence

Here is my second project highlighting Claire's new stamp set Little Box Labels. I just love making boxes and containers and this set is just perfect for these kinds of crafts! (Click on any picture to see more detail)

My project today was made for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast. I was inspired by this pretty charm from the Charm Lady Boutique that Stef showed us.
I thought this pretty Basic Grey Paper matched the colors of the inspiration and this dreamy chocolate satin ribbon accented it perfectly! I added the little feather because I think it's so cute! I stamped the super ribbon stamp and layered it behind the label here. What a fun stamp that is!

Of course I had to make some notes to tuck inside this pretty box! I used some sentiments from the Say It With Style set as well as Blessed by You. I also stamped a two layer flower also from Say it With Style on the envelopes just to make it all matchy-matchy! These notes are just one layer 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Here's a little peek into the box to see how they nestle right in there! I made 14 notes and envelopes but you could probably fit 25 in here. You could also add some booklets of postage stamps and a pen to make it a complete Correspondence Set!
This would make a wonderful gift for someone wouldn't it?! Or maybe I'll just keep it!!! LOL!!
Both of Claire's new sets are up at her shop now so be sure to hop over there before they sell out!
