Gift Boxes

 Hello friends! I thought that I would share the packaging that I made of the gift boxes for my Secret Santa gift exchange.

As I shared before, my recipient's favourite colour is Mint Macaron. This is how I decided which DSP I was going to use for her card that I shared on Monday's post. I used the same DSP to decorate the box that I made.

If you have never made a homemade gift box before there are tons of tutorials online but it is pretty easy to figure out. You just need to measure the length, width and height of the gift.

I used Mint Macaron cardstock to create my box. I added some more of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the top of the lid and along all four sides of the lid.

I stamped my sentiment using Mint Macaron ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock. The sentiment is from the Encircled in Warmth stamp set. I cut this out using a die from the Hippo & Friends Dies set. I also cut out the next size up from some Mint Macaron cardstock so that I could mat my sentiment piece. I added this to my box using dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a bow that I tied using some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I used my Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour the ribbon so it would match the box better. I added my bow to my sentiment piece using a glue dot.

I made a second, smaller box to hold a pen that is part of the gift. This pen was also on her wishlist. I used Mint Macaron cardstock to create this smaller box and covered all four sides and both ends using the same piece of DSP from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP package.

I stamped my sentiment for this box using Mint Macaron ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock. The sentiment for this one is from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set. I cut it out using the tiny label die from the Hydrangea Dies set. I wrapped some White Baker's twine around the box a couple of times and then tied a bow with the label attached in the bow. The baker's twine is from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed seeing these gift boxes. Maybe it has even inspired you to give it a try. I feel that it adds an extra touch to your gift if it matches the card. Unfortunately the gift card holder does not match but that's because my recipient is on team Tim Horton's so I had to go with reds for that. Have you made gift boxes before? I challenge you to give it a try.

Stay well and keep creating!
