Hi everyone, sorry for my delay in posting today, I decided to do another tutorial for this box and then had a day of catching up on lots of other things that needed doing.
Lots you asked for me to make this gift box after I shared my pretty Tea-Cup & Saucer, so today I’m sharing these beautiful Display Gift Boxes.
I wanted something that was going to show off the beautiful tea-cups so opted for this acetate box.
I think this finishes off everything perfectly and really makes this a wonderful handmade gift.
You can see whatever you put inside the box really well with the 4 large windows.
The first tutorial I made is great and works well but I just kept thinking that there must be an even better way to make it. The acetate is very strong and has a mind of its own and can be tricky to work with. With this in mind, I decided to do another tutorial which I think works much better, and easier for everyone.
I suggest you watch both tutorials and decide which one you think will work best for you.
Below you will find the measurements for the easier version.
4 pieces of 6″ x 5.1/2 acetate. I used the Papermania 12 x 12 acetate. Available from Mountain Ash Crafts.
4 pieces of 1″ x 6″ pattern paper for the corner sides of the gift box.
Score along the 1″ side at 1/2″
1 piece of 9.5/8 x 9.5/8 pattern paper for the lid.
Score 1″ & 2″ then pull your card out very slightly and score at 7.3/4 & 8.3/4
1 piece of 7.1/2 x 7.1/2 pattern paper for the base.
Score along each side at 1″
I used the Craft Sensations “Light Textures” from The Range and Sweet Garden Roses paper pack from The Works UK.
The red tape I use is from Every Crafts A Pound 23 rolls for 10 pound.
Ribbon to decorate the box.
In the original gift box tutorial, I also suggest my Big Bow Birthday Box tutorial as this will also fit in the tea-cup and saucer.
This is a beautiful gift box and perfect for many other gifts.
I hope you enjoy this style box today and it works well with your Tea-Cup & Saucer.
Have a lovely weekend
