Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Pin Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stamps, die, stencil, ink and enamel pins. If you arrived here from the talented Vicky Papaioannou blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!
Let’s take a look at my gift boxes:
With Mother’s Day around the corner and two of my coworkers celebrating their birthday, I thought it was fitting to use the new stamp set and pretty paper to create super cute gift boxes.
I used Altenew’s new Ombre Alpha stamp set and the beautiful Blushing Blooms Paper Pack to create these tiny gift boxes.
Here’s how to create these gift boxes:
Pick 4 different patterned papers from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack.
Use the envelope punch board to create the box shape. The only need these ruler measurements:
Set the 6×6 paper at the 1.5 measurements and punch. Then slide the paper down to the 4 measurements and punch.
Now all you have to do is turn the paper 90 degrees and slide the paper to the first score line punch and score and slide down to the second score line and do the same thing.
Repeat for the remaining side.
Then you want to cut the scoreline on the side of the box that has the bigger tabs. Cut just to the first score lines and repeat on the other side.
Fold the box adhere with tape and your finished.
For the tag, use the Mini MISTI to stamp the letters and use a tag punch to punch them out. I used a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.
Let’s take a look at some close-ups:
These two boxes are for my coworkers. They celebrated their birthday last week and I wanted to surprise them with a small token to celebrate them.
I metal stamped the heart and created a necklace for each of them. The gift tag is a great addition to this little box.
Here’s what the boxes look like from the top. They are nice and compact, perfect for a nice small gift. Each has tissue paper in them.
The other two are for my sisters, for Mother’s Day!
So what do you think? Would you create cute boxes like this?
