Thank You Teacher Gift Box0
Hello, Sylvia here with a short tutorial showing how to make this quick and simple gift box. I don't know what this type of box is called but it is so easy to make with just an oblong of card, glue and embellishments.
I usually get asked by my grandchildren to make something for them to give to their teachers, this year I have made this gift box to hold some lovely chocolates.
Materials I used:
- Papermilldirect white linen 244gsm card,baby pink plain 240gsm card and spring green smooth 240gsm card
- Spellbinder shaped tag and Sizzix tiny tag
- thank you stamp
- sentiment from the Silhouette Store
- distress inks for edging
To make the basic box cut an oblong of card 15cm x 25cm, lightly score at 1cm and 13cm. To help with the twisting of the box lightly score 4cm down at 7cm and 19cm.
Fold the 1cm tab inwards and fold the card at the center score line. Add double sided tape or glue along the tab to stick. While the box is flat add patterned paper, colour with inks or stamping.
Stick the base of the box with double sided tape or glue, add a gift, sweets or chocolates at this stage before closing the top edge.
Close the top from the 4cm score to the opposite 4cm score line and stick with double sided tape or glue. Add embellishments, tags or sentiments as required.
I covered my box with patterned paper from my stash. The sentiment was printed, cut out with a shaped die, edged with distress inks and attached with 3D sticky pads. Three simple roses were made and attached to the sentiment with three leaves. Finally I added a small tag stamped with "thank you" using hassian cord.
There will be some very lucky teachers out there this week, I'm sure you have all been making some amazing cards and gift, don't forget to let us see your makes by tagging us in your photos or #papermilldirect on instagram.
