Girlie gift packaging

long box close up

Tonight I’m busy making a little batch of these little tree ornaments ready for the craft fair tomorrow. These girly versions will hold illuminating tweezers.

Similar boxes went down very well at the craft fair we attended in August and I’ve just updated the colours and stamps for Christmas, so hopefully they’ll be great as last minute stocking stuffers.

Recipe

Stamp set: Tags Til Christmas (W120847 or C121169)
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette (116203), Regal Rose (108612), Brushed Silver (124918)
Ink: Regal Rose (105211)
1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon: Regal Rose (122965)
Punches: Petal Card (119273), 5-Petal Flower (119880), Scallop Oval (119856), Large Oval (119855)
Other:  Basic Pearls (119246), Metallic Eyelets (retired)
Tools: Crop-a-dile (108362)
Non-SU: Velcro

The box is cut to 4-3/8″ x the height you need it to be (in this case 4-1/2″) and then scored at every inch. It was stamped with the small snowflake trio in Regal Rose ink before folding and assembling. A  Petal Card punched from Regal Rose card was fully adhered around the base of the box. Punched flowers of Pink Pirouette and Brushed Silver card were secured to the middle of matching Petal Card with an Eyelet, using the Crop-a-dile. This was then adhered to the open top of the box using only one of the flaps. Ribbon was threaded through the Eyelet and tied in a knot, a tiny square of velcro was added as a closure and a Pearl added over the fastening. The sentiment was stamped onto Pink Pirouette card with Regal Rose ink and then punched out with the Large Oval. the edge of the little holly sprig was then stamped off the oval top and bottom, also with Regal Rose ink. This was then popped up on dimensionals on a Scallop Oval of Brushed Silver and popped up again on dimensionals on the side of the box.

Have a great weekend and come see us at the craft fair tomorrow if you can.
