Be Merry Package

Do you ever feel as though you have the cutest gift ever and when it comes to packaging said cute gift. . .  you stick it in a brown paper sack cuz you don’t have any great packaging ideas?  Let me solve that for you!

Let me show you how easy it is to make a box for your perfect gift.   I created this box after I saw a similar box on fellow demonstrator Sam Hammonds facebook posting.  I used the Christmas Around the World designer series paper.

You can easily alter this box to fit your special gift. . . the easiest way to do that is to choose a size that is easily divisible by 4 (that is Sam’s greatest tip).   For this box I started with a 8″ square designer series paper and and cardstock for a base.  Score every 2″.  Watch my video for great tips.

 

So if you wanted to start with a 10″ square cardstock, you would score ever 2 1/2″.    Here is the video from Stampin’ Up! on the Be Merry Ornament/Tag kit.

 

As I mentioned, fellow demonstrator Sam made an amazing project.  Here is my version of her project.
