If you think this Christmas gift box is cute that I made with the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, you will be happy to know you can easily make handmade gift boxes also!
Today I watched a Stampin’ Up! video with Donna Griffith who shows us how to make a square box like this out of a sheet of designer paper for the lid and cardstock for the box itself. She also demonstrates how to make a rectangular box and explains her formula for making any custom size box. It is really a great video and plenty of extra tips, like how to use Fast Fuse Adhesive!
I’ve made boxes from templates before, but somehow watching this video made it look very easy even without a template! The box I made in the photo above uses a 12″ x 12″ sheet of Real Red cardstock, which you can purchase in the Holiday Catalog if you want a whole package of red! You probably will want it to use with the darling Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper.
I tied the box with the Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon. This ribbon will be a beautiful embellishment on any packages or projects!
Watch this video and tell me that you do not want to rush right over to your crafting table and make a box after watching Donna!
