December Card Class - Gift Box Tower




I'd like to give credit to whomever posted their version of this tower, but for the life of me I can't find the idea on the internet again. If it's yours, please let me know.

I used 3 of the 3x3x2.5" kraft boxes from the Annual Catalog to create this fun gift idea. I stamped them all over with the snowflakes from the Endless Wishes set in White Craft Ink. You have to wave the box in the air a bit before you go to the opposite side of the box to give the ink a chance to dry a bit. The alphabet die set I used is a retired set, but you can use whatever alphabet you might have. I cut the letters in Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Using the SU 2-3/8" scallop circle punch I punched 3 Whisper White scalloped circles. Then using Brushed Silver cardstock I punched 3 2-1/4" circles from an EK Brand circle punch. The little mini banner flags were punched with a retired SU punch, but you can easily cut your own by hand. I used Fast Fuse adhesive for the circle and banner pieces, and then Tombow Liquid Multipurpose Glue to affix the letter to the silver circle. Let that dry a bit. After adhering the badge to the box, I added one rhinestone to each badge. In order for the boxes to stay together you definitely need a stretchy rubber band that will hide under the 1 yard of Cherry Cobbler 1" sheer linen ribbon tied into a pretty bow.

I see gift cards, socks, candy and so many other ideas going into these cute boxes and they will be reusable for a few years too!

Thanks for taking a look!
