This month is the start of my first Stampin' Write Marker Club. The Stampin' Write Markers and matching cardstock was delivered today and honestly, I didn't know what to do with them. I wanted to do more for my customers than hand them the markers.
It started that I was just going to wrap a piece of coordinating ribbon around them. Well...no...that wasn't good enough. Then I had an A-HA moment. I thought....2,4,6,8 box. That would be easy enough. Stampin' Write Markers are so pretty that I didn't want to cover them up with cardstock and shove them in a box. So I decided on acetate boxes w/ lids and ribbon to match the color family inside. LOL.. I think I would rather not be the Hostess and get one of these boxes rather than the carrying case from Stampin' Up!©. LOL
PLEASE NOTE: Stampin' Write Markers are to be stored horizontally. I wrapped the grosgrain all the way around the box so that the bow could be retied and the box could be stored on it's side.
