Gift box with cards
Today, I am showing an oval gift box with five cards. You can find the tutorial for the box further down in the blogpost.
I used the new Sweet Pea paper pad for this project.
The handle has been made with the small banner die from Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set. The little bow has been made with a sweet bow die from the Happy days die set.
There is five cards in the box. Two are very similar, so I have only added photos of one of those cards. The cards has been made with the small oval die from the Woodland Foliage Frames die set. The images are from the Safari stamp and die collection. The pink circle has been made with Happy days die set, while the white circle has been made with a die from the Fancy circle die set. The nuts and leaves has been made with the super sweet leave and nut dies from Woodland Foliage Frames die set. The tags have been made with the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set. I have added a heart on the back of all the cards, created with the heart die from the Lovelette die set.
Oval box tutorial
The box has been created as the main box with a lid. The box has been created in white cardstock, and decorated on all sides with patterned paper.
Cut out two ovals, using the large oval die from the Woodland Foliage Frames die set. Also cut out two strips of cardstock to create the sides of the box. I used two bits, since the cardstock would not reach all the way around the box. The two pieces were mounted together to create longer strip of cardboard. The strip is 7,5 cm tall, scored and cut after 2cm. The 7,5 cm side created the side of the box, and the 2cm strip will be glued under the box.
Fold along the scored line on the paper strip, and cut small lines vertically up the 2cm strip on the rectangle, creating the side of the box. This has to be done to be able to fold and glue the side to the oval. Cut of 3-4 mm of the edge of one of the ovals. This oval has to be bit smaller because it will be glued inside the box. The other oval (the larger one), will be glued under the box at a later stage.
Glue the side of the box to the smaller oval. Make sure the oval is on the inside of the box.
Glue the larger oval to the bottom of the box. You have now created the box.
The lid for the box, has been created in the same way as the box. The lid has to be 3-4 mm larger than the box to be able to fit over the box. The side of the lid is 2cm, scored line and another 2cm
used to glue the side to the oval.
Cut of about 2mm of the side of one of the ovals, used on the inside of the lid. Cut vertically strips along the glue line on the side of the lid.
Glue the side of the lid to the box, gluing the smaller oval inside the box, and the larger oval outside the box.
The box is ready to be decorated.
