Gift Box by Angela

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Angela has made a clever little gift box that would be great for some Mother's Day Chocolates, or jewelery. I hope you enjoy it.
Angela has used the Cosmo Cricket Paper Collection Kit - Circa 1934.

This is a really quick little gift box and can be used for any occasion really.

Just get two 12 x 12 patterned paper of your choice (co ordinating works well) or even cardstock is nice too!
Cut the PP that you want for the BOTTOM box to 11.5 inches X 11.5 inches.

fold all the corners in to the centre as shown below.

 Fold in to the centre (as shown below) turn the paper around and repeat on other side. Repeat again on the other two sides.  

open one side (as shown below) and pinch the two corners so they meet in the middle.

 fold the flap over and tuck it all in.  Repeat on opposite side.
Do the same for both boxes and they SHOULD look like the pics below

Cut a strip of plain cardstock 12 inches X 2.5 inches and another co ordinating strip 12 x 1 inch.

 attach and wrap around the box and then wrap an organza ribbon and tie two bows.

 Cut three scalloped circles,

distress each circle and adhere together with a pearl brad.

attach  with a glue dot and push up against ribbon.

fill with chocolates a gift card, jewelery etc

Products Used:
Paper : Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934
Cardstock: Cream
Ribbon: Cream Organza
Adhesive dots: Glue Dots

Wishing all the mum's a very HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY for tomorrow !
