Just for You Gift Box

by Joanne James19. May 2013 20:55

I've been out today making the most of the lovely weather and enjoying a 5 mile cycle ride and BBQ with my family and friends at the school my children attend, but have a quick post to share that shows a really quick way to make a beautiful box that can be used to package a gift for someone special. OK, did I say 'make'? Well, I did cheat a little; I used one of the kraft boxes that Stampin' Up! sells and covered it in some pretty patterned paper then added a handmade flower for 'wow' factor:

The flower really is so easy to do: you just cut six flowers using the Blossom punch, then roll the petals around a piece of dowel or something similar to curl them. Each one is then adhered to each other, with the central flower rolled tightly and then the remaining sections less so the further away from the centre they are. Add some ribbon and a tag and done. These boxes are often overlooked in the catalogue as they are somewhat 'tucked away' on page 161; they cost £2.75 for a pack of 4, so represent great value and at 9 x 9 x 6.4cm are large enough to hold a candle, baked goods or any kind of small gift.

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

About Me

Hi I'm Joanne and live in Northampton and when I'm not looking after my husband and two beautiful children, am an avid crafter with a passion for all things Stampin' Up!

I must confess that I have never been a big rubber stamper - until I discovered Stampin' Up! that is. I love the fact that I can get such great results with co-ordinating stamps, inks, papers and punches - the possibilities are endless! Join me on my stamping journey as I share the things I love and be inspired to create amazing things yourself!
