Stationary Box Set

I made this stationary box set using a tutorial that I found on Splitcoast Stampers. This is the very first one that I have made. I made it to give to my cousin who will be having a birthday on Monday.
I created the box base using rose stripe patterned paper. The cover is created using vintage pink cardstock. Across the front of the cover I added a strip of vintage roses patterned paper. To finish off the outside of the box I punched a heart out of mauve ice cardstock and backed it in vintage pink cardstock. Then I added a white victorian heart button to the center of the heart.
This is what the inside of the box looks like. The address book is glued right into the box so that it won't fall out when it is opened and closed. I created it by cutting down some lined paper to size and placing between two pieces of cardstock. I attatched them together with 3 brads. I realized when I was fixing this photo that I still have to put the pen in. If you look above the address book that there is a paper loop where the pen goes. The little pocket to the right of the address book is for stamps.
There is also 4 cards (2 of each style), a bookmark and 2 3x3 notecards
For the bookmark I used mauve ice as the base and punched at the bottom using an eyelet lace border punch. I cut a small strip of vintage rose patterned paper and backed it in vintage pink. Then added it just above the punched bottom. I punched three butterflies out of vintage pink and added white pearls to each of them and added them up the bookmark. I finished off the bookmark by adding three more pearls to the bottom right corner. I kept the notecards simple. I created them out of mauve ice and cut a smaller square out of vintage pink. I stamped thanks on the bottom right corner and added a butterfly punched out of mauve ice and added white pearls.
For the first card I created the base using mauve ice. To the top of the card I added a strip of vintage rose patterned paper. I added a punched a strip of vintage pink using the eyelet lace border punch and added it to the bottom of the vintage rose paper. I added a piece of pink ribbon across the card to cover up where the two pieces come together. I added a butterfly punched out of mauve ice and added white pearls to it and to the upper right corner. I stamped hello to the bottom right corner. I created a second card just like this one.
For the second card I created the base using mauve ice and added the strip of vintage rose down the side of the card backed in vintage pink. I punched the edge of the vintage pink using the eyelet border punch. I added a piece of pink ribbon and bow to the top of the vintage rose paper. I added Hello to the bottom right corner and white pearls to the bottom left corner.
