Blog Hop Day 4 !!

Welcome Blog Hop Day 4!!


Today I will be showing you a gift box that is so fun and easy to make!

This box is on page 80 of the Wild Card Cartridge, it is the giftbox 2 (so use the shift button)
I picked a 12X12 sheet of pattern paper from the Color Bok School Life pack, I did use a heavier paper because I am putting treats on the inside. I used the fit to page button so this would cut it as large as it can on a 12X12 sheet and it cut it at 5 3/4". I scored all the lines then I measured the open window and glued in some acetate paper that was 3"x4". I then glued the box together.


Here is the front:


Here is the back:
Then I filled it with LifeSaver Candies:
And added some red twine to help keep it all together!




I will have my chickie give this to her teacher so she can have some treats in her desk!

I'm sure you can tell I love super fast, simple and fun projects! I learned if I think about it, and think about it my projects look busy and I never like them. Now I just go with my gut and say less is more and now I always like how they look! It is easier to add than to take off!

** For those of you who have asked, I used my ATG gun to adhere all my projects together.**

  2. So simple but yet such a nice idea! As a teacher I would love to get this and I would 100% find another use for the box once the candy was gone (more then likely by the end of the day lol)!

  23. I've been wondering about that cartridge and am starting to find out that you can do lots with it. Did you know that another blogging gal made a project with each die-cut on the Wildcard Cartridge? You can find her on youtube if you are interested. Love your project today and especially the paper that you used. Who wouldn't love a box of lifesavers? :O) You could also attach a tag that says 'You are a Lifesaver' for helping me with (fill in the blank). Thanks for sharing sweetie!

  24. LOVE IT... I love Connie's idea about the tag that says you are a lifesaver... I have an awesome friend who i always tell her she's a lifesaver... i am making her one of these... What did you use for the plastic on the box?

    THIS HOP ROCKS!
