I love these little premade boxes Stampin Up has started carrying. It lets me spend my creative time on dressing it up, rather than on making the box.
This design was inspired by my upline, Becky Roberts. I created a belly band using Pool Party Cardstock and added a strip of the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper, then created a box using strips of DSP. Adding the beautiful snowflake was made easy with the Festive Flurry Bundle which includes the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and the coordinating Festive Flurry Framelits Dies. As a finishing touch I added one of the Frosted Finishes Embellishments. I put most of this together with a hot glue gun.
Here's what the box looked like before.
Here's the paper and the embellishment.
Here's another look at the box and belly band seperately.
The boxes are 1 1/2" x 4" x 4". Great for a couple cookies, four little candies in mini cupcake wrappers. I'm sure you could find a mini cup cake wrapper to match or just use white. Oh and these boxes are food safe!
Would also be great to give jewlery in. I've even seen a necklace and earings made using the Frosted Finishes Embellishments. This box with the belly band would be the perfect coordinated way to give that gift.
