Stationary Card Box

Some time ago I made a Stationary Card Box by using a tutorial on Splitcoasterstampers. The tutorial is by Jackie Topa. The tutorial is great but it took me a while to make it. I gave the first one I made to a friend as part of her birthday gifts. She loved it.

Now that I have a Silhouette Cameo that can cut the 12 x 12 card stock, I wanted to have a cutting file to be able to cut and assemble this adorable stationary box a lot faster and easier by not having to do all of the scoring and cutting. It took me a while to make the cutting file but it was worth the time. Now I have it on hand to make a nice gift a lot faster and easier.

Even with this cutting file on hand it would be a tremendous amount of help to look at the tutorial by Jackie Topa on Splitcoasterstampers. Here is the link for viewing her wonderful tutorial: Stationary Box Tutorial. I'm so glad I was able to locate it again. I thought I had the instructions saved on my computer but I didn't. Without Jackie's great tutorial and measurements, I don't think I would have been able to make the cutting file.

Since 12 x 12 card stock has to be used to make the Stationary Card Box, I had to make this cutting file for the Cameo. Usually, I try to share cutting files for all Silhouettes. It would not hold cards if it were made into a smaller format.

I have placed all elements of this box on one cutting file. All you need to do is cut one part, slide it off the cutting area then, move the next part on the cutting area. I have grouped each part of the box. For the note card paper. I copied this one onto a new work are so I could do a print and cut of the lined paper to add to the note pad. I made eight sheets of paper using regular type paper.

Each of the ladybugs on the note cards and tags were hand colored to give these tiny images some vavoom. The flower on the front was made by crumpling 1.5 inch scallop shapes, peeling them into two layer each, and building the layers to create the flower.

If you ever have any questions. Please feel free to contact me. I hope you try this one out and have lots of fun making it. It will make a nice gift for anyone. xxx - Debbie


  1. Wow Debbie, what patience you have to make a file for this...Well done you :)
    I have several version's of these stationary boxes and all are computer files that I bring into my Cameo to cut .... what would we do without our Cameo's ?!!! :)
    Thank you for your time spent doing all the hard work for us
    Huge hugs

  2. Thank you Adele. I agree, what would we do without our Cameos. I have so much fun with this awesome machine. The one thing about this stationary box was wishing I had heavier card stock that had patterns on both sides. I only had this light card stock but it is holding up nicely. A lot better than I thought it would. :)

  3. Thank you for all the help you are giving us "Newbies".

  4. This would make a lovely present for anyone, Debbie, not to mention a nice thing to have to hand for yourself too. It must have taken quite a while to create, even using the fabulous Cameo. Great job.
    Tine :)

  9. Hi Debbie,

    What a lovely set and the stationary box is fabulous. I love too how you place all the cutting files on one sheet. Some of the files from the official Sil stor are actually a bit confusing?

    THANK YOU so much for your generosity.

    I'll have to feature/link you to my blog one day soon, hey? I'd like this very much.
