With the handy guide included on the 1 2 3 Punch Board, I set out to create a 4X4X3.25” box with an extra-large bow. The “Here & Now” and “Homemade” Patterned Papers were trimmed down to 11”X11” and scored as instructed. The boxes were assembled and now can be stacked together or given separately!
From the “Family Ties” Patterned Paper, four rectangles measuring 3.5” X 2.75” were cut and corner rounded on the two bottom ends with the Corner Chomper. I then used Memento Nautical Blue to ink around the edges. The rectangles were adhered to the sides of the gift box.
Before attaching the bow, I wrapped a piece of velvet ribbon around the box.
The front was embellished with a layering of fun pieces from the collection: Veneer Shapes, Ephemera, Puffy Stickers and Accent Stickers. To the oval veneer shape, I added the sturdy house ephemera with foam adhesive tape and then attached it to the box front with more foam adhesive. The sentiment sticker was added along the bottom of the house and a pink puffy heart sticker graced the front door.
The XL bow was crafted from a 1.5” strip of the “Family Ties” Patterned Paper. The strip was cut into 8”, 4 ¼” and 3/8” pieces. I followed the instructions for punching and assembling the bow and then adhered it to the top of the box. For an extra bit of detail, one of the Ephemera buttons was stitched with thread and then added to the center of the bow.
Again, you can create a single gift box or a towering set of boxes using different patterns of paper! Mix ‘n match sizes too!
