Hi Stampers. Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.
You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. My project is a Christmas Gift Box that say’s HO HO HO using the large letters framelit dies and Lindor Truffles (could also be Ferrero Rocher or any other round covered candies about that size).
The box is made out of Real Red CS in three pieces – top, bottom and insert. For the top of the box I cut a piece of Real Red CS 4 1/8″ x 10 1/8″. This piece was scored at 3/4″ from all sides and burnished with a bone folder. Then I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent side. The top of the box is decorated with 8 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 8″ x 2″ layer of Real Red CS. Using the Snowflake Sentiments stamps set, I stamped the greeting and snowflakes in Versamark ink. (Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy to prevent the powder from sticking where you don’t want it). I then added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess and heated with the heat tool.
The bottom of the box was made using a 5″ x 11″ piece of Real Red CS, scored at 1 1/4″ from each for the four sides. I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. (Watch the video below to see how I made this gift box).
The insert was created out of a piece of Real Red CS 3 3/8″ x 9 3/8″, scored at 1/2″ from each of the four sides. I die cut 3 “H” letters out of Gold Foil Paper using the Large Letters Framelit dies and the Big Shot. The “O” letters were cut out of Gold Foil Paper using two of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and the Big Shot. I placed the letters onto the insert to determine where they would go and made marks with a pencil where each “O” would be. Then using the smaller of the two circle dies used to make the “O”, I cut a whole in the insert where each “O” will be. Each letter was then glued in place using liquid adhesive. I then snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. The Lindor Truffles are held in place using a glue dot on each end and adhering behind each “O” in the insert. The insert was placed inside the box (no adhesive needed).
Here is a video tutorial on the making of this gift box:
