Gift Boxes for Christmas

Hey!  Do you make your own Gift Boxes for Christmas? Or any other occasion?  I don’t normally, but I did create some for Christmas.  They are super easy, and really don’t take too much time or materials.  Best of all, they can be personalised.

Here’s one that I’ve created so far, it was a bit tricky to photograph!

The box itself is made from the Kraft  12 x 12 cardstock found in the Merry Little Christmas 12×12 Cardstock Pack (it also contains Old Olive). There’s 12 sheets of both colours, so you can not only scrapbook with them, but make loads of boxes, with lids!

I’ve then used the coordinating products in the Merry Little Christmas Suite to add layering and of course a great bow and tag.

A little tip, if you are creating a lid to go with your base, make sure score a little wider so that the base doesn’t distort when you put the lid on.  For example, if I’m scoring my base at 7cm, I’ll want to score my lid at 6.9cm.  This will make the flat area of the lid slightly bigger than the base area.  Hmm – I hope that I’ve described that in a way you can understand.

Make sure you come check my Blog on the 1st December – the Holiday Retiring List will be out, and it’s our Year End Sale with Retiring Products and Overstocked Items going out.  You’ll need to be quick tho, as it’s while stocks last.

Cheers for now

Alisa
