Welcome to my Christmas project series this year! Each and every Sunday between now and the Big Day I be sharing a fun Christmas project; from cute gift packaging, to cards and even some home decor!
I love giving the gift of shopping (especially to awkward 15 year old girls! or boys who just want Games consoles!) but sticking a gift card into a card is super boring! Last year I made pop up gift card cards, but they just didn’t have the right amount of wow factor for me. I wanted a box, and that is what I have for you today.
Actually, this box is a really handy size for home-made chocolates, tealights or soaps too – just leave out the gift card insert. Check out the video tutorial for complete instructions, although the measurements can be found at the bottom of this post.
I’ve kept the decoration on this one fairly simple, with a piece of Designer Series Paper. Timeless Elegance on the Cherry Cobbler version, and Everyday Chic on the Real Red one. With some stamped and punched accent pieces (Don’t you just LOVE that bow!)
I’ve loving a bit of red this Christmas, but choosing between Real Red and Cherry Cobbler is proving to be a bit of a problem – they are both so beautiful! – so I have used them both here. The Cherry Cobbler Version is also made as a fold flat variation, to allow you to make a few of these and have them stored flat ready for assembly when needed.
The gift card holder section of this box is an insert, punched with the Decorative Label punch to hold the card.
