Hey guys I have an unusual style gift box for you.
This idea is something I ‘CASED’ from this gift bag below.
My husband and I were doing some Christmas shopping and this particular gift was presented in this adorable box for no extra cost. I was so delighted and the poor sales adviser probably thought I was rather strange with my excitement. Straight away my husband said ‘you have to make this’
Here is my take on it.
I’ve adapted a few things and put my stamp on it, I also made a pretty plait handle which I think really finishes it off nicely.
To make these you will need…
2 pieces of 7.1/2 x 10.1/2 card.
Score along the 7.1/2 side at 3.1/2 & 7
Score along the 10.1/2 side at 3.1/2 & 7
4 pieces of 3.1/4 x 3.1/4 patterned paper.
3 pieces of approximately 20′ ribbon for the plait.
Circle dies and sentiment for the front.
My sentiment was from a Ultimate Crafts stamp set for Creative Stamping Magazine and you can still buy their back copies. This is a huge A4 page of stamps and highly recommend them and the magazine.
My papers were purchased from a shop in China so I’m unable to share any links.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
These are surprisingly very easy and relatively quick to make so please give it a go and remember to share any of your makes either on Instagram using #mixedupcraft or on Facebook using @mixedupcraft.
