Gift boxes


Hi All

My project this week comes straight from one of Marions Mega Crafting days. She showed us how to make this fantastic box from just one sheet of paper. They would make great place settings for a Christmas dinner appropriately decorated and filled with chocolate coins or other goodies.

I used the now iconic cupcake stamp with lots and lots of stickles and offcuts of paper and ribbon I had in my stash. To make the box itself all it takes is a scoring blade and a few folds, then some double sided tape to hold it all together. I used the threading water punch to make the scalloped edge on the top.
They're filled with sweeties, intended for the PJ Crop a couple of weeks ago, however, an attack of the numpties meant I remembered to take everything else BUT these boxes. The best laid plans and all that.... I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.
All the best and happy scrapping.
