Using all the stamps in one set

I pulled out my Pun Fun stamp set to make these 4x4 note cards. I used all eight images to make one of each and a custom box to put them in.
I used Summer Picnic DP and limited myself to three colors of markers-Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and Old Olive-doing minimal coloring on the images. I poked 11 holes with my paper piercer using my Mat Pack as a guide in one corner and they are good to go. They will make a nice little gift set.
The gift box wasn't quite so easy. I really wanted to put a scallop edge on the sides but a little bit of trouble. By the way, did you know the scallop edge punch does NOT bounce very well when thrown in frustration?? Actually, I would never throw a punch (throw a punch, ha ha get it??) but I sure felt like it. I wasted three sheets of paper on that idea before I gave up. So I ended up just adhering some ribbon around the lid of the box. It is OK. Sometimes our ideas don't work out and we just move on.
So, today was day 2 of my new resolution to use each and every stamp set on my shelf. I can do this. As long as I stay away from other blogs.....
