Coffee, Cookies and Cocktails - A tutorial making note cards and a box to hold them

Hello fellow stampers and friends~
 For my Saturday Night Live demo on Facebook, I created some fun note cards and a cute box to hold them. It would make a fun gift for a friend or a host gift.

The note cards and envelopes come in a pack of 20 cards and envelopes.  I am using the Very Vanilla cardstock tonight, but they are also available in Whisper White.  The are great to have on hand.
The box is made from one 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock.  A photo of the template I use is below. You can follow along on the video, it comes together easily.  
The stamp set we will be using for this project is: "Nothing's Better Than" #152507, and die set "Love You More Than" 152698.  Some of the stamps use a two step stamp technique, and the cookie card also uses a masking technique.  I show how to accomplish both of these techniques in the video.
