Wild Things Note Card Gift Set

I bought the Wild Things stamp set from TGF and thought it would be cute to do a set of cards using these stamps. I had colored them last week, but then forgot about them because of all the other projects I was working on... I found them today and started working on them again. This was a fast and fun project that would be a great gift to give someone.
I used one animal for each card and decided to keep the card very simple.
After I made all the cards... I thought it would be nice to make a box that could hold the set nicely. This is the A2 box pattern that I followed from Splitcoast Stampers. Its really easy to put together. I even used my scallop border punch for the box cover. To keep the box closed, I made a band that goes around the box. The 12x12 paper I used was a little short to overlap, so I had to improvise and use my circle/scallop circle to attach to the two ends of the band. This bunny was a leftover image that was already colored, so I used it instead of coloring another Wild Thing stamp. Here's a side view of the box so you can see the scallop border.
Supplies used:
Cardstock- Bazzil, DCWV
DP- Bo Bunny, Doodlebug Designs, Reminisce
Embossing folders- Cuttlebug
Scallop border punch-Fiscars
Circle, scallop circle, square and scallop square dies- Spellbinders
All animal stamps- TGF
All seniment stamps- Hero Arts
Markers- Copics
Dew Drops- The Robin's Nest
Ribbon
