So this is going to be a super quick blog post. We have a severe winter storm that’s just started to ramp up and I’m not sure how long the internet and power will stay on. With that in mind I decided that decorating a gift box would be a speedy option. The sentiment is quite generic, but makes this a box that can be used for any occasion.
Making up the box is really simple as it comes ready assembled as a base with separate lid. All I had to do was fold in the side flaps on each piece, fold over the top/base and tuck in the tabs. Then the scalloped lid slid effortlessly over the base.
To decorate the top I began with a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Night Of Navy Card. Then from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders I chose the splatter folder. After putting the card inside I ran it through my Mini Cut & Emboss Machine.
Next I cut a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Gold Foil Sheet and mounted the embossed piece on top with Mini Glue Dots. On the back of the foil I put Stampin’ Dimensionals and fixed the layers to the box lid.
For the sentiment I chose “It’s your day!” from the A Good Man Stamp Set. Using Night Of Navy ink I stamped it onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card. Then I chose the fancy ‘square’ die from the Ornate Frames Dies to cut it out.
Finally I tied a small Misty Moonlight bow using one of the two ribbons in the 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack. I attached the ribbon to the corner of the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot. With that done I added the sentiment to the embossed layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and my masculine box was complete.
Phew, it looks like I managed to get this done in time. Tomorrow could be another story!
