Gift Box or Bag

Gift Box or Bag !!!!

Morning all, a bit late with the blog today I'm afraid, starting making this last night and finished off this morning.

I have used the Sue Wilson Die: Festive Collection - snowflake background.

I used two red card blanks, and cut the die out on all 4 sides. Then using a strip of red card, joined the two card blanks together, so that I had an open box.
Using cream hammer card I created a base by making a box bottom and sticking inside of the red open box.
I was going to make a lid in cream as well, but the card seemed a little flimsy to me, and I didn't want to add acetate inside to strengthen, so I decided to fold two sides in so that it made a carton shape rather than a box.

I have decorated using a create and craft die - Candle & bow.

I punched two holes in all four sides of the box, before threading ribbon through.

You could use this for an battery operated candle, or as a gift bag.

Thanks for stopping by. x
