Today I wanted to share a project I made using this tutorial for a gift card box. I thought this was just the cutest idea ever; and actually quite simple to put together. I think this will be a perfect end of the year gift for the boys to give to their teachers.
For my box, I used papers from Bazzil's "Green with Envy" package that I ordered from Simon Says Stamp. For the stamped panel on the top of the box-- and I must say if you decide to make this project, it is important to remember that you need to assemble and attach your stamped panel before you adhere the box together--I used "Eastern Delights" by Clearly Besotted stamped in Teal and Hot Lips Ink from Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts Midtone shadow ink in Green Hills. I added a bit of
Once I had assembled the box, I added some Bermuda Bay ribbon to keep the box closed with a few small sequins for a bit of final interest. The box will stay closed on its own without the ribbon; but the two little back tabs stuck out, and I just didn't like that.
Busy morning for me, so that's all for me today. Enjoy your day and I'll see you again tomorrow morning for this week's "Saturday Morning Coffee Thoughts"
