When I went to the dentist a while ago, I was complaining about tooth pain but they could not find anything, so they gave me some mouthwash that would help. It came in a nice hard-ish kind of box, and a nice small-ish size. I thought it would be perfect to use as a pattern for a gift bag-box.
What I did was I took some Designer Series paper, and I wrapped the box like I would a present, but I left the top open. When you adhere your DSP together around the box, obviously you do it so you can not see the adhesive, I used sticky strip. Then when you get it done, you just slide out the box, and then you have your finished project, ready to decorate. I first learned how to do this from Debbie Grayson (Hi Debbie!), and then Linda Hansen (Hi Linda!) showed us at Convention one time too.
Tip: When you are wrapping your box, don't do it super tight, you want to be able to pull the box out of the DSP.
You can use anything, gosh you could use a hunk of wood if you wanted. You are only limited to the size of the paper you are using to cover the box.
This is what it looks like after I decorated it, I was going to put a handle on it, but I wanted to leave it as more of like a table side gift, or you could put some cookies in it, in a cello bag, tie it with ribbon and give as a gift. (Hey Ruth, wanna borrow my box?)
Paper: Sweet Slumber Textured DSP ( I am gonna miss this paper), Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Misc: Button Bouquet, Black gingham, Daisies #2 die (I can not get enough of this die), 5 petal punch, oval punch, movers and shapers, modern lable punch, a Perfect Day Rub-ons
So I am in charge of the Tuesday 3-D challenge over at Paper Craft Planet, so this is my challenge. Get a box, any size, and make your own gift bag/box.
Make sure to head over to Paper Craft Planet and upload your finished project, and tag it 3d16 and I will snag it and add it to the gallery. Show me what you got!
Have a great Wednesday, and thanks so much for stopping in!
