Charm Gift Box

I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday season. I certainly have. The best part was spending time with family I don’t get to see very often.

Wowee, I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since I posted. The holiday really took a toll on my stamping schedule. I still have some Christmas themed projects I had planned to post before the 25th. Until I get back in the full swing of all things stamping, I’ll continue to post a few of those.

For birthdays and Christmas, my sister and I always get each other a charm for our bracelets. This year we got each other the same charm – we are so alike! I discovered that a Pandora charm box fits perfectly inside one of the Stampin’ Up! Tiny Treat boxes. I’m sure a ring box would fit, too!

I covered this one in Santa and Co. DSP. The box is a 2″ cube, so I cut the DSP to 1-3/4″ squares – 5 pieces for the four sides and the top, 6 pieces if you want to cover the bottom. The piece on the front has a notch cut out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch to accommodate the notch in the box. A adhered the DSP to the box with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a piece of Marina Mist 1/4″ cotton ribbon around the box and tied a simple bow. I looooove the cotton ribbon! Such a nice texture and feel.

For the tag I punched out two scallop ovals from the same DSP and glued them back to back. I stamped the sentiment from the Visions of Santa stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White card stock. I cut it with the Large Oval Punch and adhered it with Stampin’ Demensionals. I used the 1/16″ Handheld Circle Punch to make a hole in the tag, threaded Whisper White Bakers Twine through, then tied it around the bow.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Of course, I had to mark “fabulous” with my Marina Mist Stampin’ Write Marker.
