Hi everyone, sorry for the delay with this post, no internet for last few days so I couldn’t upload it.
Anyway…On Friday I uploaded a video tutorial showing you how to make these pretty Flip Top Gift Boxes.
I love the flip lid detail and pretty flower.
I had purchased some shortbread and wanted a nice box to present them in.
I used the Mariposa papers from First Edition, available from Amazon.
To make these gift boxes you will need…
1 piece of 8.1/4 x 11.3/4 cardstock A4 size for the back and lid of the box.
Score along the 11.3/4 side at 1.1/2, 7.1/4, 8.3/4 & 10.1/4
Score along the 8.1/4 side at 1.1/2 & 6.3/4
1 piece of 8.1/4 x 7.1/4 for the front of the box.
Score along the 8.1/4 side at 1.1/2 x 6.3/4
Score along the 7.1/4 side at 1.1/2
1 piece of 1″ x 8.1/4 cardstock for the inside lip to close the lid.
3 pieces of 5″ x 1.1/4 pattern paper to mat the top 3 sides of the lid.
1- 3 pieces of 4.3/4 x 1″ pattern paper to layer on the top 3 sides of the lid.
2 pieces of 5″ x 5.1/2 pattern paper to decorate the front and back of the box.
1-2 pieces of 4.3/4 x 5.1/4 pattern paper to layer on the front and back of the box.
2 pieces of 5.1/2 x 1.1/4 pattern paper to mat the 2 sides of the box.
2 pieces of 1″ x 5.1/4 pattern paper to layer onto each side.
2 pieces of 1.1/4 x 1.1/4 pattern paper to mat the sides of the lid.
2 pieces of 1″ x 1″ pattern paper to layer the sides of the lid.
Velcro dots for the closure.
Flower dies, ribbon and embellishments to decorate.
The screw punch I use is by Xcut and available on Amazon.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
This is a great sized gift box and will hold many different gifts. You could also fill it with handmade cards which was suggested by one of my lovely crafty followers and I thought was a great idea.
How beautiful are these papers!
The flower was made from an old Stampin Up flower punch I have.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you are having a nice start to your week.
