Gift Box

Hi Everybody! Hope you are all well. Still snow flurries but hopefully that's the end of the major stuff.

My Project

Well today's offering is not a card but a box - talk about stating the obvious! It is made from one full A4 piece of card stock and measures 7cm so is quite adequate for a little gift or choccies.

I first saw this whilst I was browsing the web some time ago (as you do) and promised myself I would have a go at some stage. Unfortunately, I didn't save the site and couldn't find it again, but it is so easy that it soon came back to me. I used SB Parisian Accents on each of the sides and then added flowers from WOC and added a few leaves from SB Foliage to the front. I punched a couple of holes into the top edges and tied them with ribbon from my stash. Very simple but pretty and useful, I think.

That's it for today.  Love and hugs from Christine xx

  6. I love making boxes also Christine and I think I have the tutorial for this saved in my Tut folder. I think it's called a Gable Treat Box. Yours is so lovely, esp the flowers.
