joy gift box

hello friends! 

Here is another gift box I just completed.    I love getting and giving gifts that I have wrapped in such a way that the package is as pretty as what is inside.

Here are the details:

For the box – it measures 8″ wide x 6.25″ tall, x 1.5″ deep.   I used  Sizzix dies for this – these are the very large (12″) dies  (one for the top and one for the bottom) that only work in the Big Shot Pro or larger machines.  But not to worry if you don’t have the die or larger machine!  You can easily take a sheet of cardstock and score it on each side to make whatever size box you want.  For this I used red Bazzil textured cardstock – the heavier the better for your box.

For the main panel:  The image is from Peddlers Pack and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the following copics: R59, R37, R35, R0000, G24, G21,  and G40 .  Prisma pencils would also work well for this image.  You can’t tell from the photo, but I used a stardust gel pen to add some glitter on the bow and parts of the wreath.    This particular image would work wonderful on a card as well.

This panel was layered on black, then green.  Once the layering was done I mounted a piece of decorative red cardstock onto black and put strips of green cardstock that had been punched with a Martha Stewart border punch on each end.  A strip of red rhinestones were place on the bottom.

Before attaching these pieces onto the box, I wrapped the top of the box with a white satin ribbon.   The double bow was made separately and glued onto the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
