Mini Christmas Gift Box

Hi again,

Things are busy, busy, busy!  I’m trying to organize myself for the cruise we’re going on.  We leave Wednesday morning for Long Beach (Cali).  We’re spending a day at Universal Studios, followed by two days at Disneyland.  On Sunday we head to the cruise ships where we’ll be on a week-long cruise along the West coast of Mexico with Nathan’s extended family.  It’s going to be one fun trip, and I promise to share a few pictures.  I’ll even try to do some blog posts, but you know how that goes ;-)

Today I have for you a mini little Christmas gift box.  I love making these boxes, since they’re so cute and simple.  You start out with a piece of decorative paper or cardstock that is 6”x6”.

Score the paper at 2” and 4” so it folds up into a 2”x2”x2” box, and adhere together.  The bottom’s done!  You can either make the top pretty much the same, or follow the pattern I’ve made.  It’s got some extra folds in there. 

Add some embellishments.  I love doing my sentiment on a little banner like this (cut out tails).  Add a tag, ribbon, a button, and you’re done.  Glue dots work especially well for adhering all those things.  Now you need to fill your box with special goodies, of course.  And send some to me.  Especially if they’re chocolates.. yum!

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    so cute!
    I went to a little scrapbooking party and could see myself getting hooked on doing something crafty like that Unfortunately I have absolutely no room to spread stuff around so the dream will have to wait until we move (in 2012, fingers crossed!)
    Looking forward to visiting with you :)
