Things you need

So, to get started, it is better that you get your things in order first. What you would need is a sketch box, some card stock ( in two different colors) and text weight paper. Now depending on the color combination and size, you want to make, the designs and the colors of the things might change. Along with these, you would need stamp pads, ruler, knife, adhesive spray, punch, rubber bands, stamp kit, and envelopes. If everybody comes to like it, you can also make lots of these boxes and sell stationery boxes wholesale. It would be your way of making some side money for all your gatherings with friends.

What to do?

The steps might look lengthy and tricky at first but if you pay close attention you would soon be making lots of custom stationery boxes on your own.

  1. Cut the cardstock and text papers in sizes that would cover the sides of the sketch box easily. Be sure to use the ruler and measure the sides and lengths very carefully so that the final look of the box is neat.
  2. Next in line is the task of stamping the monarch cards and envelopes. Depending on the color scheme you are following, use a creative pattern to stamp these papers using your stamping kit. Leave it on a side to dry out completely.

3.Now use the cut paper to cover the box completely. Make sure that the paper is a little larger in size than the side of the box so that it fits perfectly. This is where you will have to use the adhesive spray or a glue of any kind. We strongly recommend using the spray as it is less messy and would be easier to use.

4.Once you have prepared the top of the box, add in some rubber bands at equal intervals. These rubber bands would serve as pockets for the cards and other paper products that you would want to hold in your custom stationery What is best about this part is that you can get really creative here without having to spend too much of your money too. Take hold of the old rubber bands from your home and reuse them in this step. Add some more detailing with some paint or other animations. We also deal with stickers of many kinds. If you feel like it, use them to save yourself some time and use imagery at its best on your stationery boxes.
