CHRISTMASTIME TALL BOX!

The Christmastime is Here Suite has been with us all month.  I have been so busy with projects for Onstage that I haven’t had near enough time with it.  I have been using the papers particularly though.

Recently I made a tall gift box using the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have had lots of lovely comments from class members when they see the box so thought you might like to see it yourself.

I love that this paper has the gold embossed outlines over one side of the paper.  There are 3 different designs in the pack with some type of gold touches.  It is gorgeous.  AND I love that this paper could easily be used for any occasion not just Christmas.

Here is the box I made.  Fill it with chocolates for a lovely friend, wrap around some of the gorgeous Gold ribbon and add a sentiment piece.  What more do you need.

The sentiment is from the set A Big Thank You.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the paper.

Here is how to make your own Tall box.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TALL BOX TUTORIAL

Cut card to 21cm x 21cm (8 ¼” x 8 ¼”)

Score on one side at 5cm and 19cm (2”, 7 ½”)

Turn and score on the other side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

(2”, 4”, 6”, 8”)

Card mats for the side: 4 each of 4.6cm x 13.6cm (1 7/8” x 5 3/8”)

Designer Series Paper: 4 each of 4.2cm x 13.2cm (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”)

Scraps for decorating.

Gold Ribbon

1. Fold on all score lines.

2. On the long side cut up on the score lines to the score line that runs across. This creates your tabs to fold up. Cut up each tab on both the top of the card and the bottom. The smaller tabs will be the bottom of the box. The larger tabs will form the top of the box.

3. On the short side of the card cut on the 2 score lines that are on the very narrow tab. Cut off completely the top tab and the bottom tab so you only have a narrow tab section in the middle.

4. Adhere the paper pieces to the card mat pieces and adhere them all to the sides of the box. You can adhere them after the box is assembled but it is a little easier to do it first.

To assemble the box:

5. Fold the score lines to form a box shape. Place adhesive on the outside of the narrow side tab and adhere the box together. On the small tabs at the bottom place adhesive on the outside of 3 of the tabs and fold in adhering them together on top of each other. Fold the last unglued tab over the top.

6. The top flaps will fold in and will hold together with wrapping the ribbon around.

7. Decorate the box as you like.

Hope you make one of the boxes for yourself.  They are very easy.

BIRD BALLAD TENT BOX!

I have this cute little box to share with you today.  It is a Tent box.  I have used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  We made this box at our team meeting last month.  It’s such a sweet size and you can fill the box with some chocolate treats and wrap it up in some gorgeous paper.

Bird Ballad Tent Box

The little flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set were stamped on scrap white with Memento Black ink and then coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.  Then they were then handcut.

I love this paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper packThe paper creates a little wrapper around the box.  You could make this style any size you like.

So would you like to make your own little Tent Box.

You can find it on Sam’s blog – Pootles -> HERE.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #73 – DAISY LANE TEA BOX!

I have a sweet little Daisy Box for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #73.  You could use this to gift Tea Bags or some small chocolates.  I have the Tutorial below.

It doesn’t take long at all to make.  I used the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper for the strip around it.  The daisies were stamped from the Daisy Lane set and punched with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I did 2 of each and layered them together.  The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  If you check the leaves closer I scored along the centre and then curled them up a little.  This gives them a little dimension.

Here is how to make your Box.

Tea Bag Box

NB: Measurements are in both Metric and Imperial.  (apologies in advance for the 16th” measures).

Cut card to 19cm x 14cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″).

Score card at 8cm and 11cm on the 19cm side . (On the 7 1/2″  side score at 3 1/8″ and 4 5/16″)

Score card at 3cm and 11cm on the 14cm side. (On the 5 1/2″ side score at 1 3/16″ and 4 5/16)

Cut Designer Series Paper piece at 6cm x 28cm (2 3/8″ x 11″).

To assemble the box.  Fold and score on all the lines.  Cut up on the small score lines on the long sides of the card.  See below.

Assemble the box by firstly adding adhesive to the 2 small tabs placing it on the outside of the tab. Fold up and bring one of the side panels over to adhere on to the tab.  Do this on both sides of the box.  Add adhesive along the outside of this long tab and then adhere the other long tab down on to this. This forms your box.

Place adhesive, (I use Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive) along the back of the paper strip and wrap around the box and adhere down. Decorate as you like.

Hopefully that makes sense.  I was a little time pressed today to get the full photos together.  If you need more information, drop me a comment and if you would like a video then let me know.

Enjoy making the box.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 8 – PILLOW BOX CHRISTMAS!

Week 8 today for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  Are you enjoying these?  I would love to hear what you think.  I hope they are inspiring you. 🙂

Today’s project is a gift box.  The Kraft Pillow Boxes make really quick gift packaging.  They are large enough to add a gift card and even throw in a few chocolates.

For this one I have use the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits.  Not much longer to get these products if you want them.

I made a wrap for the Pillow Box using the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  Then added a strip of Old Olive cardstock around it.  TIP: Assemble the Pillow Box before you adhere the paper so you have the right dimensions with it being expanded.  The larger snowflake is cut with the White Velvet Paper, then a snowflake is stamped in Real Red on to Red card and cut with one of the snowflake Thinlits.  A tiny snowflake is cut from the Copper Foil.  I added a small bow from the Linen Thread. I just realised I edited this photo upside down as the bow doesn’t sit the right way.  Oops! Oh well! That’s OK right. 😉

Simple but very easy to do.  You can dress up any treat with these.

You can grab these Kraft Pillow Boxes in my store now -> HERE.  Unfortunately they are not one of the discounted items for the Extravaganza but they are still great value at $8.75 for 10 boxes.

The Under The Mistletoe DSP is one of the papers at 10% off today and tomorrow for Extravaganza.  Grab your pack at $17.32 in my store -> HERE. I have used this paper a lot this Christmas. Make sure you grab some for your Christmas creating.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny

So here is the video below.  Further down I have the still photos for you if you want to PIN them.

Such a selection. Aren’t they just lovely?? Thank you everyone who swapped with me.  I hope these give you some inspiration for your projects.

GABLE CHRISTMAS BOX!

Here is a very quick treat box to make up for Christmas.  This one we made at my Christmas in July Class a while ago.  Yes I know that long ago and I am just sharing it now.  Sorry. 🙂

I thought you might like to see it.

These are using the Silver Gable Boxes in the Annual Catalogue.  You get 12 to a pack.  They also come White.

I diecut the red card with the Delicate Lace Edgelits. This was adhered to the front and the back of the box.   The sentiment is from the Stylish Christmas set and punch out with the Everyday Label Punch.  I punched one from Shaded Spruce too to add behind.  I tied around some of the Real Red Solid ribbon on the handle.  Too easy and they will fit a few sweet treats.

Hope you like it?  Thanks for looking.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 5!

DAY 5

Today’s project is actually a gift box.  It is always good to have little boxes to fill with chocolates or treats.  This is not a new box for me but I will give you the instructions shortly.

I created the sentiment the same way as I did on the card from yesterday.  You can go back to that post to check it out if you like.  This box was just the right size to add the die cut frame on the top of the box.  The ornaments on the side was added as an afterthought.  It needed something there.  I probably should have thought of that before I assembled the box.  So stamping on this afterwards was a little stressful.  I held a clear block to the back of the panel when I stamped – and held my breath. That is an important stamping requirement you know. 😉  It turned out well not just once but twice.  I was so lucky!!

To make the box:

I designed this box a few years ago now.  You can find the Original post with the instructions in Metric and Imperial on this post HERE. 

Here is the card and the box together to see what a great pair they make. Funky for Christmas do you think?? 🙂
