Hello Sunshine Gift Box

Hello ...

I hope you are all well.

Today I want to share a little gift box that I have made using the Hello Sunshine Collection.

It is really handy to have a quick method of making up gift boxes to wrap those little gifts we give.

To create this box follow these instructions:

1.  Take a piece of white cardstock 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".  Score at each edge 1" in and then score from corner to corner in the small square as shown in the picture.

2.  Make this into a tray by folding the score lines and adhering with double sided tape.  This is not going to be seen so don't worry too much about how it looks.  It just acts as a base for the box.

3.  Trim your chosen patterned paper 5 1/2 x 11" and add double sided tape to one long edge and one short edge.

4.  Slowly and carefully wrap this around the base of the box until it forms a tube.  Adhere using the double sided strip you put on.

5.  Trim a 1" strip of coordinating paper and adhere to the base of the box.  Add the gift and seal the top.

6.  Die cut 2 circles and adhere to the top of the box.  Punch a hole and thread through the twine.

7.  Take the elements from the 12 x 12" Paper Pad and adhere to the front of the box. Add a brad.

Enjoy your week.
