Dry Embossed Silver Mini Gable Box for a Bridesmaid’s Gift

The Silver Gable Boxes are so pretty and so versatile. Don’t you just love products like that? Today I’ve decorated one for a bridesmaid’s gift. One stamp, an embossing folder, and some ribbon turned the simple box into a frilly gift, full of nail polish, lip glass, etc. – all pink of course.

 

Here’s what I made:

Cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

Stamped with the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set:

Embossed using one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders (TIEF):

  • sides of the box (see below for details)

Assembled the project:

  • burnished all the folds in the box with a Bone Folder to give it nice crisp edges
  • used a Heat Tool to warm the adhered seam of the box and pulled it apart
  • ran the box through the Big Shot twice, once on each side, with the TIEF
  • glued the box back together at the seam
  • assembled box, tucking the two end flaps down into the box
  • put gifts inside the box with some shreddie, then tied the top closed with a piece of 1/8″ Silver Ribbon
  • adhered Powder Pink all the way ribbon around the sides of the box using Tear & Tape
  • adhered the sentiment onto the box panel using Tear & Tape
