Hi Friends! It is EK, and I am so excited to share this small gift box I created. I have a teenager now, and I have been looking for a fun way to give his friend’s birthday cash in a more creative way than just a simple card. I thought the A Way With Words Gable Box by Suzanne Cannon was the perfect way to give a little birthday cash.
Step One: Die cut some Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock with the Gable Box die.
Step Two: Pre-fold all the edges of the gable box. This make a big difference later when you are assembling the box.
Step Three: Using some copic friendly black ink, stamp out the long candle image twice and the sentiment from the A Way With Words Happy Birthday Collection stamp set.
Step Four: Using alcohol makers, color an ombre effect across the whole box. I used YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27, E19, E18 (lightest to darkest) copic markers.
Step Five: Color in the candles with an alcohol maker. I used E07 for the base and Y02 for the flame.
Step Six: Using a white gel pen, add some details to the stamped images. Using some Kids Choice Glue, paint a little glue onto the flames and add some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
Step Seven: Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add some adhesive to both the tab and the bottom of the box. Assemble the box.
I just love how this little box came out. I think it is perfect for a fall birthday.
