I’m back today to show you one more example of a custom gift box. At a recent Pals Online Meeting, Tammy Beard, fellow Stampin’ Pal, did such a great job of showing us how to create fun boxes. This rectangular box can fit one or two of our stamp cases — how fun to gift a friend a stamp set in one of these fun boxes?
I started with a piece of designer series paper from the Friendly Hello Bundle, from Sale-A-Bration, along with a panel of Pool Party cardstock. The piece for the top was cut at 7″ X 9 1/4″ and the bottom part of the box (the Pool Party paper) was cut at 8 1/2″ x 10 3/4″. Tammy Beard gave us the tip to cut the piece for the box bottom just a WEE bit smaller than specified to ensure the lid can go on easily.
Notice Tammy’s measurements below – once the paper pieces were cut, I scored all sides: the bottom (base) should be scored at 1 1/2″ on all sides, and the top (lid) should be scored at 3/4″ on all sides.
Then some slits were cut on two sides, opposite of each other, only one-inch cuts up to the next scoreline. Here is a graphic — the dark lines are scissor cuts. Even though it’s not a rectangle graphic, the idea is the same.
From there, you just fold and burnish at all the score lines and use a strong adhesive to tape the small corner flaps inside the side flaps. So easy! Then cut out a tag from the Taylor Made Tags Dies, and stamping with Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I attached to the box and added a a wrapped band and a bow with some retired ribbon.
Here are the supplies I used for this cute box. Then scroll on for more exciting info!Product List

ALSO…..(do you like my transition there??) Do you know these beautiful colors are soon to retire, never to be seen again in a Stampin’ Up! catalog? (unless we have a complete color refresh, of course!). So in the meantime, make sure you have ink, ink refills, card stock, and designer series papers that coordinate with these lovely colors. What’s your fave? I’ll tell you mine…it’s Cinnamon Cider! So yummy, not only for fall, but in combination with so many other pretty colors.
