Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Creating a Gift Box

I am sharing a tutorial over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog on how to create a gift box. I used the SMARTY PANTS stamp set to decorate this box.

You can find the full tutorial here.

This box was used for a set of 12 note cards (with envelopes) and the box measures 6 x 4 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches. The base of the box will be cut at 9 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Score your box at 1 3/4 inches, rotate the paper and repeat on all sides.

For the lid just add between 1/16 inches to 1/8 of an inch to size of base measurement. Again score at 1 3/4 inches on all sides.

Here is a look at the finished box, complete with the set of note cards.

You can see the video tutorial on creating the chalkboard effect on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps YouTube page here.

Here is another example of a gift box. This one measures 5 3/4 inches square. The cardstock for the base of your box will measure at 9 1/4 inches square. Score at 1 3/4 on all sides. Again the lid will be 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch large than the base size with the same score at 1 3/4 inches on all sides). The stamp on this box is I {HEART} COFFEE.

Head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog for the FULL TUTORIAL

Have a KRAFTY day!
