These are by far the fastest and easiest gift boxes I know how to make, and I make them all the time in various sizes. I made these for members of my team, the Candy Hearts, who attended OnStage (Stampin’ Up!’s semiannual convention type event) last weekend. In each box I put a pair of earrings with photos of candy conversation hearts on them. I didn’t use a single stamp on these boxes. Instead I used dies from the May Flowers Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, and Large Letters Framelits.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

First I determined the size of the box, which was  3″ wide (side to side) x 3″ deep (front to back ) x 3″ high (top to bottom.)

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Daffodil Delight card stock (CS) to 9″ x 9″, then scored 3″ from each side
  • Tempting Turquoise CS to 5-1/16″ x 5-1/16″, then scored 1″ from each side
  • See diagram below

Die cut using the May Flowers Framelits:

  • flowers from Daffodil Delight CS scraps

Die cut using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits:

  • hearts from Melon Mambo CS scraps

Die cut using the Large Letters Framelits:

  • each person’s first initial from Whisper White CS scraps, then covered it with Clear Wink of Stella (WOS) – Actually I applied the WOS after the letter was adhered to the box lid, but I recommend doing it beforehand. No matter how careful I was, I still got some WOS on the CS pieces below it.

Cut with Paper Snips:

  • along one score line on each side of the Daffodil Delight CS box, only to the the first score line
  • along one score line on each side of the Tempting Turquoise CS lid, only to the the first score line
  • See diagram below

Assembled the gift boxes:

  • folded up sides of lid and glued in place, with small tabs inside
  • folded up sides of box, inserted earrings, and put lid on top to hold the sides up – You can glue the sides of the box, but I prefer to let them open up when the lid is removed (see photo below)
  • Daffodil Delight flower glued onto box lid
  • Melon Mambo heart glued over flower
  • Whisper White letter adhered over heart and flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • sequins glued to lid – I put 3 sequins on each lid, and tried to make the placement look random

 

Here are the diagrams:

Score along dotted lines. Cut along solid lines.
