Get Well Kit

I found a picture in a recent magazine for a "Get Well Kit".  I really liked the concept but alas there were no instructions, so I have spent the afternoon measuring and cutting to make this "Get Well Kit" Stampin' Up style.  I put the measurements on the bottom of this post so I hope you can understand my scratchings on how I made it.

I have made it to enter into the challenge this week at Dynamic Duos using the colours of Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke.

Measurements for Kit

Main Cover

4 1/2" x 10" Cardstock, score at 4 1/2" and 5 1/2"
Punch edges with border punch of choice
4 1/8" x 4 5/8" Cardstock
4" x 4 1/2" DSP
Other decorations and embellishments of your choice

Inside Covers

4 3/8" x 3 7/8" Cardstock x 2 pieces (for left and right inside covers)
4 1/4" x 3 3/4" DSP x 2 pieces
4 3/8" x 7/8" Cardstock (for inside spine cover)
4 1/4" x 3/4" DSP

Tissue Holder

2" x 5" Cardstock, scored at 3/8", 1 3/8", 3 5/8" and 4 5/8"
1 3/4" x 5" DSP

Lozenge Holder

1 3/8" x 3 1/8" Cardstock, scored at 3/8", 1 1/8", 2" and 2 3/4"
1 1/8" x 3 1/8 DSP

Lip Balm Holder

3/4" x 2 1/2" Cardstock
1/2" x 2 1/2" DSP

Curve with bone folder as this piece needs to wrap around the Lip Balm.

Tea Bag Holder

3 3/4" x 2" Cardstock
3 1/2" x 1 3/4" DSP

When adhering this piece only put sticky strip on three sides as you need the top open to slip the tea bag into.

To Put Together

Adhere the cardstock and DSP to front cover.  Decorate and embellish as desired.

Adhere the cardstock and DSP to the inside covers and inside spine.

Wrap Lip Balm Holder around Lip Balm and stick together.  Adhere to middle panel in the kit.

Adhere Lozenge Holder 3/4" in from right hand side of DSP on the left inside cover.  This is to allow room for the Lip Balm to sit when the cover is closed.  It is best to check before adhering this piece down to make sure that it will all fit.  To do this close the cover when the Lip Balm has been stuck down to check the measurement that you will need to allow.

Adhere Tissue Holder 1/8" in from left hand side of DSP on the left inside cover, making sure that this piece is centred and the tissues fit inside.

Adhere Tea Bag Holder to bottom of right inside cover, decorate as desired and slip in the tea bag.
