Mini Cards and Petal Card Punch Holder (CASEing catalog page 31)

When I saw the cute little boxes made from 2 of the Petal Card punches in the stockings on page 31 of the catalog, I had to try them.  What would a person place inside?  I decided 1"X2" pieces of cardstock folded in half would make adorable cards to put inside the Petal Card envelopes. The Cute by the Inch and Itty Bitty Bits sets are perfectly tiny to use for the cardfronts. Now, what would a person do with these little cards?  Lunchboxes are always a possibility....Maybe put one on a coworker's desk when he or she is having a trying day?

In this picture, you can see the box is made by merely folding three of the edges in and using sticky strip to attach them.  I punched a hole in the top as it appeared to me to be in the catalog and added some crochet thread which I had dyed using a So Saffron reinker to a Vanilla shade. The polka dot print from the Jolly Holiday designer series paper made an easy belly band for it.
