I’m loving the new acetate boxes in the Autumn / Winter Stampin’ Up! catalogue, it makes it so easy to make a perfect gift box in minutes! They are designed to fit 5 standard A6 cards and matching envelopes, but you can use them for so much more than that!
Want to gift someone your handmade cards? What a perfect time to do it.
My box uses the Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper which is gorgeous. Every sheet is foiled with either Champagne, Silver, Gold, or Copper; or a mixture of them all! It immediately creates that rich, luxury feeling that tells you this box contains something very special.
By stamping in Powder Pink onto Powder Pink card stock you get a soft image.
A Perfect Gift Box Easily
I used the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder to create an embossed impression on the front cover. Accentuate this by adding an inner layer behind it, hiding the present inside and highlighting the front.
Queen Pip Tip:
Use the embossing folder when the box is flat. Push the side with no flaps into the embossing folder & use on the lowest tab of your Big Shot platform.
Because these boxes come ready cut & scored, all you have to do is decorate and then fill! They are 16.5 cm long by 11.5 cm wide and about 1.5 cm deep. So you can fit lots in your perfect gift box.
How about a silk scarf, some hand made cards, cookies, a little notebook, a Christmas survival kit with eye pads, ear plugs, hot chocolate sachet, marshmallows and some chocolate too?
I love using gift boxes that are as pretty as the present inside, this way you can create it without needing to score anything! Enjoy shopping for your perfect gift box today (oh and you’ll get 10 in a packet so you can make one for everyone!).
