Have you ever wanted to make a Gift Box to show someone you care and are thinking about them as they go through a tough time?
How about making a Valentine's Day gift or two?
What about making a special token of appreciation for your workmates?
These little containers can be made to fit any small-sized, flattish treat. You could fill yours with wrapped chocolate thins, coffee bags, or in my case, 5 herbal tea bags.
"The greatest gift is a portion of thyself".
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
The first Gift Box I made I followed Beate's instructions over at SplitCoastStampers
Then I decided to adapt those instructions to show you how to make this little gift box fit your own brand of candy or whatever it is you want to give.
Here's what to do:
This time I decided to cover the rest of the lid with patterned paper as well. It's up to you how to finish your box off, of course. It would still look nice if you left the lid uncovered and decorated the edge of it instead, for instance
I then stamped and punched some images for the catch and used some ribbon to make the front even prettier. I popped the punched image up on two Stampin' Dimensionals, leaving the top free so it could act as a catch, as shown above.
I finished off with some more corner punches and rhinestone bling.
Hmmm. I think I'll go give this little Gift Box to my sweetheart right now.
