Something you might overlook in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog are the White Gift Boxes that can be decorated in so many different ways for Christmas and any occasion! These boxes are 3″ on each side, so a decent size for a gift or treats – not too big and not too little. Leave them plain and just tie on a ribbon and a tag or decorate fully however you like. An added bonus is that they come with acetate sleeves that you can slip over the box. It just doubles the decorative possibilities! The boxes themselves have a rather slick surface so it is best not to stamp directly on the box. If you really want that look, I would just stamp on Whisper White cardstock and then adhere that to the sides of the box.
To decorate my White Gift Box, I decided to cut squares from the 6″ x 6″ sheets of the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. On the top of the lid I adhered a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and made sort of a double-ended banner strip to lay across the top. I glued down the top and the back but left the front flap unglued so the person can open the box! It stays down with the Kraft Rope Trim. This is a fun kind of “ribbon” to use on packaging and projects – not too heavy and easy enough to tie in a bow!
Here is what the White Gift Boxes look like out of the package!
You get 8 boxes for $8.00 and they are food safe. You know right well you will be scrambling for just the right size box for a gift during the holidays, so grab a couple packages of these and have them ready to go. Even if you don’t decorate them except for ribbon and a tag, they will look snazzy and high quality, especially with the acetate sleeve around them!
Since these boxes are food safe, maybe you would put in a stack of homebaked cookies or candy! You could also put the treat in a cello bag and then into the box. And the boxes aren’t just for Christmas, obviously. Special Halloween treats or a Thanksgiving mix or cookie would be great. Not to mention birthdays and any gift-giving occasion!
For the tag on my gift box, I just grabbed a scrap of Cherry Cobbler and put it in the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I trimmed the Whisper White layer with a scrap piece from the Warmth & Cheer paper to match the box. The greeting is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink with a stamp from the Tin of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set.
