Suit & Tie Gift Box

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

On my Facebook Live this I created one of these Gift Boxes, using the Suit and Tie Dies by Stampin’ Up!® to decorate them. These were fun to make and I can’t wait to fill them with lots of goodies to give to someone special.

To decorate the gift box I used the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper which you can earn by placing an order with me.

Soap Gift Boxes

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Last week in my class we made these cute little Gift Boxes fill with a small cake of soap.These little boxes of soap make a great little gift for those times where you need something quick, for that unexpected gift

Soap Gift Boxes

You could use any Cardstock and Designer Series Paper to make Boxes with Belly Bands, here I have used Stampin’ Up! ® Peony Gardens Suite Collection.

These boxes made to the dimensions of the Soap.You could use any beautiful soap for this, the soap I used came in a box of 10 soaps – all  wrapped in cellophane. Each soap measured 5cm square with a depth of 1.8 cm. The finished size of my box is 5.5 cm square and a depth of 2 cm.

Here is a my measurement plan for cutting, scoring & folding of card stock.

Measurements Used –

  • Box – 9.5 x 17 cm, score along 9.5cm side at 2cm , 7.5cm. Score along 17cm length at 2cm, 7.5cm, 9.5cm, 15cm
  • Belly Band – 4.5 x 15 cm
  • Tag – scrap for stamp and die cut

How did I do That – Soap Gift Box Video

Watch the video where I show you how I made this basic box.

To finish these boxes I wrapped some Tulle Ribbon around the box and tie of in a bow. Stamp the small Peony image onto Whisper White cardstock using So Saffron Ink Pad. Stamp the ‘For You’ sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp set. Punch a small hole and tie around center of the tulle box using bakers twine. Add Glue Dot under the bow and under tulle on the bottom of the box to hold in place.
