Gifts for Administrative Assistants Day

Administrative Assistants Day is coming up next week and a friend of mine contacted me to see if I would create something for each of four assistants.  I needed to make something that could sit on a desk, hold a small treat and have a coordinating card and they needed to be the same but different.  After talking and showing samples, my friend decided on these:

Gift Bag Punch Board Prism Boxes.

Gift Bag Punch Board Prism Boxes with Watercolor Wings topper from

I used Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist cardstocks for the boxes.

Then, I chose coordinating designer series paper.

The Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow boxes are trimmed with Birthday Bouquet designer paper.

The Hello Honey Prism Box is trimmed with Botanical Gardens designer paper.

And the Tangelo Twist Prism Box is trimmed with Sweet Lil Things designer paper.

The butterfly toppers were all stamped using the Watercolor Wings stamp set.

Each butterfly was inked with the color matching the cardstock used for the box.

The first image was stamped off and the second image was stamped full strength in Whisper White cardstock.

The butterflies were then cut out with the Butterflies Thinlits.

Each topper used three butterflies.  After gluing the butterflies together, I used hot glue to attach them to the lid.

Stop back tomorrow when I’ll share the coordinating cards.

Product details can be found below.

Create something today,

I’d love to be your demonstrator!

    Hi Sara, I’ve tried going to your tutorials tab but the prism box isn’t there. Do you still have this tutorial published?
    Thank you.
