A Sweet Gift Box

As a demonstrator, I have access to a lot of wonderful ideas and projects, not only through Stampin' Connection (an online community for demonstrators only), but also through the Stampin' Up! site for demonstrators. We have access to online videos showing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. The gift box below was one of the video projects. I used different stamps to make mine and different ribbon and a different tag, but the box idea came from Stampin' Up! To make the box itself, you simply die cut two Fancy Favor boxes, stamp them, and then slip one box into the other. The result is a box that is closed on both ends, but easy to open :). 
For my box I used Real Red, Very Vanilla, and Always Artichoke. Those are great colors to use for Christmas projects! My tag is made with the Ovals die and the Designer Frames embossing folders. I used the medium oval for the tag and embossed it inside the Designer Frames folder. For the center of the tag, I die cut the smallest oval and embossed it with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I finished off the tag with a stamped image from Winter Post. Adhere some seam binding ribbon and add a bow and you have a pretty box for a gift or for special treats. I may add home baked Christmas cookies to mine- this is ideal packaging for a few Christmas cookies :). I hope your day is wonderful today! See you tomorrow!
