When I was exploring Pinterest this week, I discovered a tutorial to make a mini gift box using one sheet of card. The card is scored and folded to create a clever little gift box, perfectly sized for packaging some small treats. The tutorial can be found over at Stamp with Silvey.
What I love about this Gift Box is that it can be embellished/decorated in so many ways. I raided my paper stash and found some black and white polka dot paper.
The tutorial uses a 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of cardstock. I used an A4 sheet which I trimmed to 8 1/4 x 11. (If you are using an A4 Sheet, score the lines at 2 inch and 6 1/4 inch in step 2).
To see the tutorial you will need to click on the photos which will bring up a slide show of the steps.
I decorated a little peg/clothespin with washi tape and attached a satin bow with hot glue. These would be fun to make as little favor boxes.
It feels great to have made something that we spotted on Pinterest! We would love it if you followed us over there.
