My project today is a great way to package a gift but to also use the package as a keepsake.
This cute Book Box is ideal for putting a treat inside whilst letting your recipient keep hold of the box to store, maybe their Christmas tags inside or favourite football cards.
The pale blue one is made from Soft Sky and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I used Snowflake Sentiments and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits to decorate it.
The red one is Cherry Cobbler and Gold Glimmer Paper. I used Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits for this one.
It doesn’t show up very well on this image but I did stamp the box part in snowflakes before making it up and adhering it.
For the ‘box’ you need cardstock 8.75″ x 8.75″ and score on all four sides at 1″ and 2″.
For the book part you need cardstock 11″ x 6″, scored at 5″ and 6″.
You can the decorate it and fill it with whatever you want.
Here is my tutorial followed by the products used.
Happy Crafting ?
