Good morning crafters. I thought I would give you a little break from Christmas this morning (although I have lots of lovely festive projects all ready to share with you. I have gone a bit Christmas crafting crazy recently!).
I was surfing the crafty blogosphere on Friday and came across this fantastic tutorial to create these twisted gift boxes. I was looking for inspiration for my card class 3D project and thought this would be perfect. So I set about recreating it.
I used a Mint Macaron based and scored/cut according to Kat's instructions. I realised the tutorial needed to be slightly adapted to fit UK A4 (I simply scored the short edge at 2", 4", 6" and 8" leaving a slightly thinner tab for holding the box together).
I used off cuts of English Garden Designer Series Paper to decorate my box and wrapped a length of Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon all the way around my box to keep it all together.
I created the tag with my Note Tag Punch and stamped the flower from Garden in Bloom with Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz inks. I finished with a Metal Rimmed Pearl.
This is a lovely little project to use a table favour or place setting. It would fit small amounts of sweeties or treats in perfectly. I love that this has the two compartments for fitting treats in to. You could also use it for jewellery or small gifts.
