Today I thought I'd share a box with you. Spellbinders do a few box templates and they are currently on offer in the Diamond Deals on Create & Craft at the moment while stocks last. All the boxes are really easy to assemble.
Here's a Square Petal Top Box -
I embossed the white card with the Flower Delight Impressabilities. This is so useful as its A4. This item has sold out on Create & Craft but you may find it at one of these stockists. I glued the box together with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Acrylic Glue which dries really quickly and is really strong - perfect for boxes.
The die comes with some extra bits including a great design to stick on the sides (which I cut from peach card) and a little tag. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the little tag die and inked through the die with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I added a little Peach Fizz Vintage Ribbon and glued the tag to the top of the box.
This box is a good size when made up - measuring approx 2 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches. As I said, so easy to make and so nice to co-ordinate a box with a card you have made.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Julia these little boxes are so cute. Any left over card and paper would be useful to decorate them.ReplyDelete
