Valentine Gift Box

This is such a fun box for small gifts.  It folds together and doesn't need any glue to make the box.  It can be decorated for any occasion.  I added a butterfly, bow and heart to use as a valentine gift.  I added a bath  fizzies or bath bomb and some of the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (Yes!, Stampin' Up! has shreds--in white, dark pink and silver) and you're set with a small gift. This is one of the projects we'll make in the February 11 class.   


Uses Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Instructions on my blog

The base of the box is Berry Burst.  The lid of the box is one of the patterns from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, which includes gold foil accents and brushstroke imagery, a very modern look for your Valentine gift.  


The Base of the butterfly is Flirty Flamingo and was cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelit die.  The detailed butterfly is cut from Very Vanilla using the Butterflies Thinlits dies.  The small, gold heart is cut using one of the Sweet & Sassy Framelits dies.  The bow uses the 5/8" Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.


The box base  is 7-1/2 X 7-1/2".  It is scored at 2-1/2" on all four sides.  Then, cut off the corners of each side from scoreline to scoreline.  The photo above shows what the base looks like after removing the corners and before you begin folding.   




Score all score lines, then fold in all four corners and fold up the side, until the box base looks like the image above. 

Remove the three small squares at each corner, like the lower right corner above

The lid is cut from a 5-3/4 X 5-3/4" DSP.  It is scored at 3/4", and 1-1/2" on all four sides.  Remove the three small squares at each corner, like the photo above.  

Score all lines with a bone folder, then fold in the corners, like the photo above, on all four corners.  Begin folding in each of the remaining score lines, forming the lid of the box.  No glue is needed, but if you wish, you can add adhesive to secure the folded flaps in place.  

The pieces of this box can be stored flat until needed, so it's great to use for gifts when you travel.  Or, at the end of a catalog season, use your leftover DSP from your projects to create a number of these boxes, then save them flat in a draw or a file folder until needed.  Great fun to have a quick gift box when you have a small thank you gift to give but don't have a lot of time.
