Seasonal Layers on Fresh Florals Gift Box

Colourful Seasons meets Fresh FloralsTwo of my absolute favourite products in the new catalogue…Fresh Florals DSP and Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

And even better than that, you can buy the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits as a bundle saving you 10%! I would definitely recommend this as both are gorgeous…you get a whopping 17 dies and 24 photopolymer stamps so it’s great value for money.

When I designed this box, I wanted something elegant but a good size too.  The finished box measures 4½”x 2″x 2″…perfect for candles, chocolates, perfume etc.  Here’s how I made it…

Cut a 8½”x 8¼ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and score on the shorter side at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″.

Turn and score along the longer side at 1½”, 6″ & 8″.  Fold and score all of the scorelines then cut as in the 1st photo.  I cut ‘flowerpot’ shapes into the base instead of just cutting straight up the scorelines for a neater finish (see 1st photo – small triangles around the scorelines)  Add tear and tape as shown in the 2nd photo below, fold the main part of the box to seal as shown in photo 3.  Fold in the flaps to form the base of the box, ensuring the tab with tear and tape on is last (note to self…start doing videos!)

To decorate the box, cut 3 pieces of Berry Burst Cardstock measuring 4″x 1½” and adhere to the sides and back of the box.  Add a 3¾”x 1¼ piece of Fancy Florals DSP in Berry Burst layer on top.  Using the Seasonal Layer Thinlits, cut the branch in Early Espresso Cardstock and 4 flowers in Berry Burst – I used 3 different flower thinlits from the set and the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets.  Add to the front of the box (you’ll need to pop the branch at an angle).

Finally, Cut a 1¾”x 1¾” square of Berry Burst Cardstock and attach to the lid using dimensionals in each corner.  Add a 1½”x 1½” square of the Fancy Florals DSP in Berry Burst.  Punch a hole in the centre of the lid using 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch.  Fold an 8″ length of Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon in half and holding the ends together, cut at a sharp angle to help when feeding through the top of the box.  Once through, leaving a small loop on top of the lid, tie underneath in a single knot.  As always, if you’d like to buy any of the products used in this project, click on the product below and it’ll take you straight to my online shop xx
