Ornament and Matching Gift Box

Here is another project that we will be doing at my Giftables class on Saturday.  It is a clear glass ornament filled with rolled up paper tubes and I have created a box to package it for giving.  Scroll down for a tutorial on the box.

Ornamentboxstampedside_2This is the box bottom.  I had the Artichoke box bottom put together and then I decided to create a tutorial for it so this is the beginning of the one I did with the Dashing paper.

I decided that I wanted the middle of the box to be a 2 3/4" square and the sides the same size so I cut my Real Red cardstock to 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 (which is 2 3/4 x 3) I scored it at 2 3/4" all the way around.  I cut up the score lines on two opposite sides and stamped the main image from Season of Joy as shown.


This is a picture of the flip side where I would use Sticky Strip.  Since Sticky Strip is backed with a red strip, I used correction tape so you could see where to place the Sticky Strip.


Here is the box after you remove all the backing pieces from the Sticky Strip and attach it all together.  It is a 2 3/4 square and the ornament will fit neatly inside.


This is the lid for the box.  It is 4 13/16 x 4 13/16 and scored all the way around at 1".  Cut up the score lines on two opposite sides and add the Sticky Strip.


This is the reverse side of the lid showing where to place the Sticky Strip and how I decorated the edges with the swirl from Season of Joy and a 2 5/8 x 2 5/8 square of the Wintergreen papers.

Here is the finished project tied with the gold cord.  I used Always Artichoke for the box bottom and Certainly Celery for the box top.Ornamentandboxwintergreen
