Crafty Baby Shower – A Party Pack Series (pt2)

Hi again, I hope you are all doing well and finding time to enjoy any hobbies you may have.

Todays post is going to be about  handmade gift boxes. The gift boxes were to contain little sweet treats and be included in the gift bags that the guests would be receiving at the shower.

As you can see, the same paper pack has been used –  and will continue to be used – throughout the remaining paper projects.

The original design is cased from Pootles Paper craft – visit her on both YouTube and Facebook , plus she also has her own blog. She is a very talented lady and is very generous with her talent.                                                                                                                                          As we wanted the paper to do all the work décor wise, I decided to keep any extra embellishments to a minimum. I chose to use two types of punched out shapes and layered them onto the box. I also differed my boxes from the original design by changing the type of closure.; Like I said, I didn’t want too many embellishments, so I decided to tuck the lid flap into the box and added a half oval punched section as a finger tab.  The punches used for these boxes were all from Stampin’ Up!.

I did however colour over the Butterflys with a clear Wink of Stella brush pen – these have a very fine subtle shimmer suspended in liquid which gives a delightful sparkle without being ‘gaudy’.

We totally enjoyed making these boxes – Thank you Sam, (Pootles), for sharing your genius 🙂 !! – we set up a production line for this crafty task. I made the boxes, Amanda, Baby Shower organiser, punched out the shapes and did the inking of the edges for definition, ( she is a fabulous assistant lol), and my daughter attached the shapes with foam pads and a strong paper glue. It was a great time just crafting and chatting – a good memory made.

Thank you all for your time, please feel free to ask any questions – including asking for information about the products I used.

Take care all and Happy Crafting 🙂

‘Til part three……

    Thank you Jennifer glad I am a good assistant. The guest of the baby shower were impressed that everything matched. I also used the box lay out for a project for a local girls brigade and the girls enjoyed making the boxes and enjoyed eating the treats after.
