My first is a Snowflake themed gift box. I usually make cookies, cakes and chocolates for Christmas which I distribute to my neighbors and close friends, so I decided to get started on the boxes in which I would present them. And I have to say, I’m really pleased with the outcome. The base is red pearl card stock from ItsyBitsy and all the die cut snowflakes are made out of ItsyBitsy’s thick vellum. I added a scallop edge border can easily be replicated with ItsyBitsy’s floral lace border die and finished it off with a snowflake tag on the top. Lovely right?
My second is a more neutral color tone and all occasion box. Once again the box was made out of burley wood pearl card stock and this time I went nuts on the embellishments – using patter paper, chipboard corners, some vintage sparkle florets and finally an easel card tag on the top.
The boxes themselves were really easy to do and I will very shortly be uploading a video tutorial on how to make it. You can check out other video tutorials on our blog.
There’s nothing better than a personalized gift box – great for giving special presents or home made treats. And the best part is that its so inexpensive when you compare to the readymade stuff. Both the boxes I made just cost me Rs. 25 each!
