Is it a Box of Cards or a Bag of Cards?

I have been wanting to make a Card Set for a while and had a few ideas in my head of how I wanted to put it together, so when the Parisian Breeze Specialty Paper was released in the Spring Mini Catalogue using two of my favorite colours, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip, I just had to get it. I'm not sure whether to call this a Box of Cards or a Bag of Cards, so whatever you want to call it, it is a set of 3 cards, 3 mini cards and 3 tags (I'm into 3's, but to be honest I often run out of ideas for the 4th or its past midnight and I'm too tired to think of a 4th of everything).

The box or bag simply uses a cardstock cover with heavy acetate pockets inside.

When you open it up this is what the inside looks like, it has 3 heavy acetate pockets, one with a section for a pen (needs to be a small pen to fit).

Here is a couple of pictures of the complete set.

I am probably going to give this to a friend for her birthday next week (I haven't told her I have a blog yet, so she won't see it before the day). The only problem is I really like the bag/box design so I need to take down all the measurements before I give it to her so I can make another sometime (I always forget to do this, and then I struggle to remember how I had made something).

Hope you are having or have had a great weekend.
