Tracy's Gift Box Tutorial

This is my tutorial for a gift box, and here are the Prickley Pear Products I used to make it with:

CLR023 Mini Butterflies clear set, D044 Heart Oval Insert Die, D045 Flourish Die, CLR013C Scalloped Circle and Oval 4 Floral clear set.

I used two pieces of A4 card, and cut to 21cm square, for the lid use a score board and score 4cm in from the edge all the way round, as below:-

Then for the base slice a slither of two sides so the base fits in the lid, now score as you did with the lid 4cm in from the edge.

Now cut the corners as below, then using a bone folder fold all the scored lines.

Use a wet glue to glue each corner then hold together with paperclips on both the lid and base. Then set the boxes to one side to dry while you make the embellishments.

Next I stamped out some flowers using CLR023 Mini Butterfly stamp set, I coloured them with markers then cut them out, I layered the two sizes of flowers, added pearls to the centre and glittered the edges of the petals.  For the rest of the embellishments I cut a flourish using D045.  and a butterfly from the stamp set.

I stamped my sentiment from the CLR013c stamp set in the centre of the heart oval insert die and layered up.  Now arrange all the embellishments on to the lid of your gift box.  I added a fancy braid around the lid.

And thats my gift box.
Thank you for looking
Happy crafting
