Well we are more than half way through the year and over at Holly Jolly we are inspiring you to get creative this week and create a Christmas Gift Box.
Judy is hosting this weeks challenge which is to create a box. What type of box, could be a gift box for treats, cards, soaps, candles let your creative mind and hands lead you.
Me? I found a great little tutorial on Splitcoast called Maria’s Treat Box – you can see it here.
This is such a quick and neat little box for a gift and perfect for occasions like Christmas. So I have used Maria’s tutorial and came up with my Santa Gift Box.
I have used some of the paper from the Letters to Santa DSP and the Season of Joy stamp set which I haven’t used for ages. There are some extra swirls which I created using the Swirls Scribbles Die and some bling.
I have used Old Olive for the base of the box and the treat inside the box are some M & M’s and a little Christmas card and envelope.
Plus I finally used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and it was so easy to use – bonus!
Here is my little creation:
Stamp set: Season of Joy
Card: Old Olive, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Sticky Strip, 3/8” (1 cm) Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Letters to Santa DSP, Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die, 4” x 6” Cellophane Bag, Whisper White Square Mini Envelopes,
1” (2.5 cm) Circle & 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Circle Punches, Corner Punch, Dauber, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
Below is photo of the box without the treat bag and the card:
and the last photo displays the box, the envelope and the little card I made to go with the gift.
This was a fun little tutorial you should give it a go!
