Snowflake Gift Box

Yep, still showing off these awesome tag sets and matching Tag Die from Our Daily Bread designs which were released earlier this month. (Note: Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog post here.....I will show you that these tags sets are not JUST for the winter holidays!)

This is a close-up photo of the gift box I made while doing a project for Our Daily Bread designs blog for the Techniques, Tutorials, and Tips post......all of the instructions on how to make a gift box are right here......very quick and easy! It actually took longer to write up the instructions than it did to make the actual box!

For the tag, I used the "Mistletoe Tag Set" along with the matching "Tag Die". The tag stamp was embossed in Ranger Gold Embossing Powder, cut out with the tag die, stamped, colored, then sprayed with "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist for extra sparkle......please click on the photo for a closer view of the Glimmer Mist.

Here is a view of the entire gift box.....since I did not want to cover up the gorgeous SEI snowflake paper, I used only May Arts Crocheted Ribbon as an embellishment.

I was inspired by the following challenges for the making of this box:
Crafty Cardmakers: Containers or fancy envelopes;
Die Cut Dreams: Anything but a card;
Our Creative Corner: Create a Holiday 3D item;
ABC Christmas Challenge: X = Xmas;
Pile It On: Winter means......snowflakes and gift boxes!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! God bless!!

This is a beautiful box and so useful for any occasion. I do have a question about the scoring dimensions. To make the box lid show beneath the patterned paper, shouldn't the score line on the patterned paper be at 3/4" rather than 1"? If you score at 1", the lines on the two pieces do not line up properly.
