Gift box for Chocolates

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a cute gift box which will fit inside 6 Ferrero Rocher chocolates inside (who doesn’t love receiving chocolates!) and of course I don’t have any chocolates left to put inside my box to show you!!!!

Gift Box

To make this box, you need 2 pieces of 8″ x 8″ cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board (EPB).

For the Base:

Take the 1st piece of card, place it in the EPB at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees so you are back at the start. Now line up the scoreline with the score guide on the EPB and punch and score. Rotate 90 degrees and repeat on all 4 sides.

Gift Box

For the Lid:

Take the 2nd piece of card, place it in the EPB at 2 3/4″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 3 1/2″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 3/4″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 3 1/2″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees so you are back at the start. Now line up the scoreline with the score guide on the EPB and punch and score. Rotate 90 degrees and repeat on all 4 sides.

Fold all the scorelines. Holding each longways, cut up on each end to the first scoreline. This will fold in to the form the corners of the box.

Glue the box Base together and then line it with a piece of 4 2/8″ x 3 1/8″ piece of Designer Series Paper.

Glue the box Lid together, but before lining it, add a piece of 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Designer Series Paper to the top.

Gift Box

Adding the ribbon: starting on the inside centre of the lid, add some glue or fast fuse, and also up the inside of the lid. Then place the ribbon on top of this and up and over the top of the lid to the other side and adhere the same way. Do the same on the other end. Cut and extra small piece to tie in the centre in the knot and trim the ends.

To finish it off,  line the lid with a piece of 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper.

And you have a magnificent gift box of chocolates for that special someone in your life!

JAI#202 ~ Just Add Stripes

Hello Crafters,

If you saw my blog post yesterday, it was of some gift card holders and so I thought I would create another one today for the Just Add Ink ~ Just Add Stripes Challenge!

I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the tabs for closing this gift card holder. I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create the background stripes, stamping one way and then the other, giving it more of a tartan look. I stamped the Five Way Flower stamp in Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi ink on white card and punched out with the scallop circle punches. Then used dimensionals to give them a lift between the layers and a brad on the top. 

The ribbon is Whisper White Taffeta and I coloured it with the Wild Wasabi ink pad before adhering to the card and making a bow to stick on the front.

JAI#202

Here it is open!

Gift Card Holder

Hello Crafters,

Anyone out there who never knows what to buy friends and family for gifts? Me too!

So here is my new gift idea ~ a gift card, so the recipient can choose exactly what they want.

I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the tabs for closing this gift card holder.

How gorgeous are these? I am loving them and I am in the process of making a few in different colours, so when a special birthday comes around, all I need to get is the gift card.
