It’s All in the Box


Did you know that you can get a box pattern digital download for My Digital Studio? You can! And it’s super cool! Here are the two options you can choose from:

So, for the workshop I had last night, I knew I wanted to use this to make a super cute project for my hostess. Here is what the box looked like:

I printed the template onto some Wild Wasabi cardstock. I cut it out and stamped it with the Simple Snowflake. Along the bottom I added a strip of Candy Cane Designer Fabric with some 1/4″ Real Red Grosgrain and a Baja Breeze button from the Candy Cane buttons.

I added a little scallop circle of Real Red around the opening loop and then added a little rhinestone brad to highlight the open/close area.

For the top, I used matching colours and added a Whisper White snowflake with a little Medium Jewelry Tag in Blushing Bride. I stamped “merry” from Tiny Tags on it first and added in on with a Basic Rhinestone.

Lastly, I had to figure out what to put inside. Since the box came to 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 square, I decided that I’d make a little holiday tag kit with 2″ x 2″ square tags. Here is what the set looks like:

So I bundled 10 little tags together, wound some silver cording around a piece of cardstock and I added an Old Olive Craft Stampin’ Spot and a little holiday stamp.

This would make a perfect teacher gift or hostess gift for a friend who loves to stamp!

Thanks for stopping by and checking this project out. Have a great day!
