Aren’t those boxes adorable! I made them using the We R Memory Keepers gift box punch board that I got in my Christmas stocking :) I used some old 12×12 patterned paper and set to exploring different box sizes. What a great use for older papers and those that know what a hoarder I am are surely not surprised that I have quiet a few! Nowadays I generally buy 6×6 paper pads but it feels great to use up some old stash :) The boxes were really easy to make and all I needed to add was a little twine and a tag using Simon Says Stamp and Mama Elephant’s Filled With Love stamp set. A couple of the sentiments in this set are just perfect for adding to boxes :)
I made these boxes this morning and they were so easy to put together that I whipped up a quick video this afternoon to show you :)
Supplies: Punch Board – We R Memory Keepers gift box; Stamps – Simon Says Stamp/Mama Elephant filled with love; Inks – Simon Says Stamp lipstick red, Hero Arts field greens; Twine – Hemptique primary; Card – Bazzill marshmallow; Paper – an older My Mind’s Eye set called Be Loved
I think I need to invest in one of those gift box punch boards…I have tons of 12×12 that need to be used up!
So lovely, and they DO match your Blog Header – LOL
Great boxes! I recently bought the candy box punch board and I LOVE it! Then I got the pillow box punch board in my stocking as well as that same filled with love stamp and dies… Now I can’t wait to use them. Looks like I will need this box punch as we’ll! TFS!!
OH Debby u did it again…..you made them as quick as one, two, three… That is cool some of the things Simon didn’t have in stock I will add this instead. Why was I the only one in the family who loved to create? It is addiction! Do we get this as soon as we take our first breath when we are born? It can’t be the genes because no one else in my family luvs this stuff. I read where the magazines are going to digital and I hate that, because I am a hands on person. My pc died a week before Christmas and I lost all of dad’s pics and he just passed away in 2013. Reason I loved Kelly’s New years Card and what she wrote to all of us. If u haven’t hopped over yet to see it plz do it was so touching and the gold sparkling. Happy New Years EVeryone!
OMG! It was Stephanie instead of Kelly who did the sparkling card and touching words of encouragement for 2014. AnyHoo check hers out and the twentyfourteen card. All the cards have started off with fireworks and bangs….It is going to be a spectacular year wait ands see.
Didn’t realize their was a gift box punch board! Thanks for enabling!
