Snowflake gift box
1 Take a 12×9¾” piece of kraft cardstock and on the long side score at 1”, 5”, 6 ½” and 10½”. On the short side score at 1½”.
2 Cut out flaps for the bottom of the box, by cutting along the score lines up to the longer horizontal score line. Taper the edges of each flap slightly and cut off the 1” flap-tab completely. Fold, burnish and assemble.
3 Cut two panels of patterned paper for the front and the back of the box: 3⅝x7⅞” and two panels for its sides measuring 1¼x7⅞” and secure as shown.
4 Centre and adhere a gold Snowflake Doily at the top, front of the box. Adhere a 7⅞” length of ribbon to the centre of the box front. Loop a couple of strands of ribbon together and affix to the centre of the Snowflake Doily.
5 Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock, punch into a circle and layer onto a slightly larger gold circle. Mount in place using 3D foam pads add an enamel embellishment to finish.
There’s something special about adding a little tissue paper in gift boxes; If you don’t have any on hand, use a plain paper napkin – preferably 2 or 3-ply – separating the layers for a little delicacy
1 Take 11” square of patterned paper, score all four sides at 3”, cut along the score lines on two opposite sides, up to the first horizontal score line. Taper the flaps a little with scissors.
2 Add tape to each of the four corners on the patterned side, fold up the box, burnish the folds to sharpen the edges and assemble.
3 To make the lid, take an 8 ⅛” square of patterned paper, score all four sides at 1½”. Taper the flaps, add tape to each of the four corners on the patterned side, fold up the box, burnish the folds to sharpen the edges and assemble.
4 Decorate with a burlap ribbon, tying in with the bow a loop or two of gold sequin trim. Insert a couple of green sprigs under the knot of the bow
You could also think about adding fresh pine or holly sprigs, or any fresh flower or favoured greenery to the top of your project, for a little more elegance. Gold is such a neutral colour, anything goes!
