Need a gift box or two? During the holidays we are always looking for something to wrap a last minute gift or party favor. That is what my husband needed for a work party tomorrow.
They are having a white elephant gift exchange, so I thought a really great box would throw them off completely. The ornament inside is nearly bizarre, but almost interesting at the same time. It has a flying pheasant, with a hunting fest hung below, and then a pheasant call hung below that. Yes, somehow I let that one not go on my tree. I wonder how that happened.
This box though. I used two sheets of garden green cut at 8.5 x 8.5 and scored at two inches all the way around for the sides. The top score lines were moved a smidge over so the lid would be just a bit larger than the bottom and fit snug. Mission accomplished. I used the snowflake stamp from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set. Love that one so much. It gets used all of the time. I put a whole in the center with a circle framelit, which gave me funny half circle edges on two of the sides, but I couldn’t see a way around it, so I just went with it.
The window sheet was embossed with the elegant dots folder and stuck down inside. The sheet measured 4 x 4 and I used fast fuse to keep it in there. I ended up wrapping the gift in some 6″ wide burlap ribbon and doesn’t that look great? Surprised me too. Then this lovely box was given a big hug with some satin ribbon, gold to match the stamping, after being sponged like crazy of course. Now, the fun begins!
Have a creative day!
