Santa Gift Box

Hi everyone,


Well we are more than half way through the year and over at Holly Jolly we are inspiring you to get creative this week and create a Christmas Gift Box.


Judy is hosting this weeks challenge which is to create a box.  What type of box, could be a gift box for treats, cards, soaps, candles let your creative mind and hands lead you.


Me? I found a great little tutorial on Splitcoast called Maria’s Treat Box – you can see it here.


This is such a quick and neat little box for a gift and perfect for occasions like Christmas.  So I have used Maria’s tutorial and came up with my Santa Gift Box.


I have used some of the paper from the Letters to Santa DSP and the Season of Joy stamp set which I haven’t used for ages.  There are some extra swirls which I created using the Swirls Scribbles Die and some bling.


I have used Old Olive for the base of the box and the treat inside the box are  some M & M’s and a little Christmas card and envelope.


Plus I finally used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and it was so easy to use – bonus!


Here is my little creation:








Stamp set: Season of Joy

Card: Old Olive, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red 
Ink: Riding Hood Red

Accessories:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Sticky Strip, 3/8” (1 cm) Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Letters to Santa DSP, Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die,  4” x 6” Cellophane Bag, Whisper White Square Mini Envelopes,   
1” (2.5 cm) Circle & 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Circle Punches,  Corner Punch, Dauber, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive





Below is photo of the box without the treat bag and the card:




and the last photo displays the box, the envelope and the little card I made to go with the gift.




This was a fun little tutorial you should give it a go!
