If you have seen the new videos I have added recently then I am sure you have been wondering how you are going to give this to your recipient
No matter how hard you squeeze you will never get this into an envelope
So I have been busy with a ruler and pencil working out the measurements for a box to put your box into and this is the result ... Create a Gift Box
I think that this would make a really pretty gift for anyone and it would need to be hand given as it won't fair very well in the post.
But it must be for some one special or you wouldn't be going to these lengths to make it.
This plain variation can be used with either of the pop up boxes that I made
I have dressed it up with some of the same flowers used in the making of the Pop Up Box and this is the version created without using any dies to make it
The flowers on this one are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have trailed them from the lid down the side of the box.
I have used dies in the decoration for the outer box and I have used Interlocking Love for the side panels and Majesty for the lid and then I have lined them with Acetate
Both variations are so pretty once completed and both are easy to do.
The die will save you the bother of measuring as it cuts it out perfectly each and every time but if you can't get the die for whatever reason then you can still get the look yourself without one.
So there you have several links to products I have used and there are three tutorials here also. Click the links to go to the pages and I will also add them to the Video Tutorials tab at the top of the blog
More tomorrow ...
