Giving someone something special is always much better when you Create a Gift Box to add it too and this one is so useful you will use it for lots of items
And it doesn't take much to make this box. The short video tutorial will take you by the hand and show you how to do it and get beautiful results at the same time
Making a gift box for the special people in your life is so rewarding and much better than just handing something over
I have not used any dies for the basic shape only to add the pattern in the sides and lid of one of them.
But it looks just as good if it is left plain ... or if you have patterned card then see what effect that has on the finished project
The fun part is how you dress this box up in your individual style
I have chosen to make both of mine match the item that is going to be placed inside it
You will need three matching pieces of card for the sides and lid to your box and to get accurate measuring I have used a scoreboard
And I have used the Spellbinders Interlocking Heart to produce the pattern on the side, and Majesty for the lid
I have also lined the inside of the patterned box with Acetate for extra strength
The main reason for these boxes has been that over the last few weeks I have added two tutorials on how to make a gift
This Pop Up Box is created without using any dies at all
It is dressed with flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have done it for a baby gift
The best advice I can give you is to make a Template before you start with your best card and keep it for future reference with all the measurements written on it
For this box I have used the die especially created to produce it and the tutorial for this one is Spellbinders Pop Up Box
All the dies used are listed on the page and I have dressed the outer box with the same flowers for a co-ordinated look
You will see that the outer box has also been kept plain to give you the choice of how you want yours to look
I hope you enjoy the video and will give this pretty project a try to Create a Gift Box for yourself.
There is also a smaller version of a gift box that you may like to try
