Hi all, I hope that your week is going well so far 🙂
Today I am going to continue the Baby Shower projects by telling you about a different type of gift box – this time tiny 1″ square and 1″ by 2″ rectangular boxes.
These boxes are so cute and adorable yet functional and – when using a higher weight paper or card – quite strong! These are quite simple to make and use very little paper. These were commissioned to hold a different type of gift for the guests gift bags – little handmade soaps !!
These soaps are so lovely and made a cute addition the Gift bags.
On these boxes I wanted to add some more detail and decided to carry through the butterfly theme. I used two different sized butterfly punches – both from Stampin’ Up! – and layered them together on the top surface of the gift box. I also decided to add some thin paper twine in a soft white. This was not only for decoration but to also keep the boxes closed and the soaps secure during transportation.
After I added the butterfly to the boxes, I chose to add a pale, golden yellow diamante for the finishing touch. I think that these boxes are simple yet elegant and the handmade soaps were a great success.
As you can see below there was quite a selection of the boxes and the papers are still going a long way:)
Thanks again for you time and please comment below – I love hearing your opinions,
Take care and Happy Crafting!!
