Hi Friends! Hey. . .I created another box tutorial. I'm on the roll this week! LOL! I've been coming up with different ideas for Christmas gift ensembles and will ultimately decide on what will be the best gift box/bag option that I'll be using this Halloween and Christmas.
This box is 2 1/2 x 5 1/2" rectangular gift box. The depth of the box is 1 1/2" and you use one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" card stock. It's a cute box for stocking stuffers or just for small gifts or treats. It's a perfect box for Halloween. . .like for candies or small pieces of cake. You're probably wondering why I don't use templates? Well, I would rather know the steps to cutting and scoring than tracing a template. Once I memorize the cutting and scoring guide lines, it's much faster to create the box. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the tutorial.
I created a matching card for the box. I'm just coming up with samples right now. Later I'll probably make several of them assembly style. Time goes by quick and it's best to plan ahead, if you know what I mean. Nothing much to this card. I cut the tag using the SU Large Tag Punch. . .colored the image with my Copic Markers and added a bit of glitter to the image. The rest is basically layering and using my Nestabilities and CB embossing folder.
Anyway. . .when you have the time. . .try out the tutorial. It's a really easy, easy box to make. I'll work on a few more boxes and other projects and create tutorials when I have the time.
Stamps: Inkadinkado, SU
Paper: SU Ski Slope, SU Real Red, Baja Breeze
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Nestabilities, CB Embossing Folder, Prima Flower, JoAnn Heart Brad, SU Large Oval Punch, Grosgrain Ribbon, Stickles Glitter
Just to let you know, the tutorial was uploaded through Scribd.com and if you want to download or print the tutorial, you may need to register with Scribd. Scribd is just a site that allows you to upload Word and pdf. documents which you can't do directly on Blogger so I have to use another source to upload the tutorials rather than posting it directly on Blogger. You can find other crafters who post templates and tutorials on Scribd as well so it's a good idea to register. There's no obligation. It's a free site.
