On Thursday, I shared a couple of other gift card/treat holders for the “Last Minute Lucy" theme over at the 3rd Thursday Blog Hop. You can find that post HERE. Since I had everything out on my desk after making those projects, I decided to keep going and get a few more gifts checked off my list.
Did you know that Stampin’ Up!® has a lot of really functional pre-made gift boxes? The Mini Gable Gift Boxes are one of my favorites. They come 12 to a pack and are super-easy to assemble. The boxes are available in 2 colors, silver or lustrous white, so they can truly be used for any occasion.
To decorate the box, I took a 1-1/2” x 12” strip of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and wrapped it and adhered it around the box. Fun Fact: the paper does NOT fit completely around the box. It is just a tiny bit shy but that’s ok because I planned to cover that tiny gap up with the coffee/cocoa cup layer. Nobody will ever know it is there! Then I wrapped a piece if the Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon around the box for some added texture, again making sure the “ends” the ribbon were to be hidden under the cup.
I used the Coffee Cup Framelits to cut out the image and thought it would be fun to add a little sparkle to the “whipped cream” using the Sparkle Glimmer paper. I seriously can’t get enough of that paper, it’s SO pretty! I stamped the sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas set on the “sleeve” of the cup and popped on a couple of Red Rhinestones, because…well, why not? I did add another layer behind the cup (shocking, I know!) with the Starburst Punch, just to add a little more detail. Then I tied a little bow on the handle and there you have it.
I filled the inside of the box with a bunch of Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles (my favorite!) and snuck in a Target Gift card. Hey, everybody can find something to buy at Target, right? I know every time I go in to Target, I am pretty much guaranteed to spend $50 minimum on things I didn’t even know I needed.
I hope you liked this little project today. I have listed all of the products I used below. If you click on the images, you can head on over to my online Stampin’ Up!® store where you can shop anytime 24/7. From now through 12/31, any order over $40 (before tax and shipping) using the Host Code VBXBJRWR will receive a pack of rhinestones from me as an extra gift. Enjoy your day today!
