Welcome to the November InKing Royalty Blog Hop. We’re excited to share projects that showcase fun gift wrap and packaging ideas for the holidays.
You may have started the Blog Hop here or may have hopped over from Pam Morris at Tap Tap Stamp. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next. If you get off track at any point during the blog hop, there’s a complete list of participants at the end of this post.
This year my family is celebrating Thank-Mas. My brother and his family are flying in from California the first week of Dec and we will be going to my daugher’s house to have a Thanksgiving dinner with gifts afterwards. This is a first T-day hosting event for her so I’m very excited about doing the helping, not all the cooking. I’m giving these to all the women in my family for the Holiday’s and I wanted a box to put it in to make it all pretty. Here’s my project.
I used the Box Punch Board to make the silver box with an 8×8 piece of Silver Foil tied up with silver ribbon. The box size of 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 is exactly the correct size to fit the curvy keepsake which was made out of Vellum and inside – this is the best part – it has an LED Tealight. Thank you Pam Morris. She shared this tip with us in Atlanta at the World Card Making Day event last month. I purchased the Curvy Keepsake die just for that reason.
Of course I had to have a tag, and well, on Monday my Paper Pumpkin for November arrived. I couldn’t believe my luck, it had the makings for a perfect tag for my overall box.
Tips for using the Box Punch Board. This box is designed so you could assemble the whole thing without any adhesive, just by folding on the score lines. You can also use adhesive to attach the folded corners to the sides but I think it makes it bulky and easily pull apart. Also, the fit of the curvy box was pretty snug and any extra bulk might have made it not fit properly. The solution is to cut down the flaps. Here’s a picture of what I did. I find it goes together very easily this way using Fast Fuse as the adhesive.
