Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Just For You Gift Box.
Today’s project is an exciting one as it is giving you a sneak peek of the new Flower Collection designed by Anita Izendoorn. To create my Just For You Gift Box, I’ve used a couple of the dies from the new Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.
Step One. You’ll need a piece of sturdy cardboard. I used a piece that had a white coating on the top. Die cut the Pizza Box, from the Pizza Box die out of the cardboard.
Step Two. Die cut the scalloped square from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of vellum.
Step Three. Choose a piece of patterned paper. Die cut the flower cut out from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the cut out piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose a piece of coordinating patterned paper that goes with patterned paper you just used to die cut the flower cut out. Die cut the 2 1/2″ circle from the Pizza Box die out of the coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of both circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut two of the single Ginko leaves once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the remaining Ginko leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly blend Shabby Shutter Distress Ink using a blending tool with foam over all four leaves.
Step Six. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die , you’ll need the For You Words. Die cut the words out of the same patterned paper that you die cut the flower cut out from.
Step Seven. Assemble your pizza box.
Step Eight. Adhere the scalloped square to the top of the pizza box. Adhere the flower cut out square to the middle of the scalloped square.
Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the 2 1/2″ circle. Foam square the 2 1/2″ circle to the middle of the flower cut out square. Adhere the four Ginko leaves as desired on the left hand side of the circles.
Step Ten. To finish the gift box, adhere the For You words to white stitched circle as desired.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my For You Gift Box.
