If you need a cute little gift box for a treat or small gift, try making this easy triangle box with the Year of Cheer Designer Paper. I learned to make this triangle box a long time ago and it is SO easy! You can vary the size, decorate it for any kind of occasion, make it as plain or simple as you want….it’s up to you! And did I say it was quick and easy?!
My sample starts with a piece of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is beautiful paper with foil designs, one-sided, and perfect for special cards and projects. I used a piece of paper cut 5″ x 10″. All you have to do is score the paper at 5″, then mark on the short ends the center spot which would be 2 1/2″. Score from the 5″ score line to the center mark on the short ends on each side on each end.
This is what the scored paper will look like:
Fold all the score lines and practice folding into the triangle box shape. Then on each end you will need to punch holes so that you can tie all the ends together once you put the contents inside.
Here is one of my older posts with a diagram of how to score the box. You do the same thing even if the size is a little different.
To decorate this triangle box, I embossed a snowflake image from the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set with the Heat Tool and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I punched out the snowflake with a Circle die that fit around it with a Silver Foil scalloped circle die. After adhering these two pieces together, I layered that piece on a piece of Silver Foil punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I embellished this snowflake piece with a piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Rhinestone Jewels. The triangle box is tied with a piece of Mini Tinsel Trim.
