When I started using The Ultimate Crafters Companion tool, I was amazed how quickly and perfectly my boxes came out. These are the first two boxes I created. Both were made from an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 square sheet of Pearlescent paper. You can also use 12 x 12 paper, if you want to make larger boxes. By changing the score line while making them, I was able to decide how large I wanted each box without having to measure anything. The directions were very simple and easy to follow.
The first gift box I made I decide to use my Cute Companions Duo's Stamp set, Handmade with Love. I began by adding designer paper to the sides of the lid. I then wrapped ribbon around the lid, adhering the edges inside the box with adhesive. After adding a few flowers, I colored my stamped card image and used pop dots to adhere it to the box.
Handmade with love has so many adorable images, perfect for personalize a gift or card. Isn't the mouse with the paintbrush adorable?
The second box I made in five minute! Having already made the first one, I quickly whipped throught making it and added a sheet of designer paper to the top of the lid. I attached a quick Baby sentiment to it and I was done. Perfect for adding a gift certificate to for a last minute gift. I'm looking forward to trying out the Octogon and triangular boxes next.
Have a great day!
