Pixie "Scrap-Lift" Challenge


Over at the Pixie house, we are having a Scrap-lift challenge!! I decided to scrap-lift Lori's Small Packages but I gave a little twist to it... designed a square-ish box and named it "Shabby Gift Box" :)

(click to enlarge)

Here's the box template. All you need to do is to click to enlarge, save it, open it using your printing software and click print. This will fit A4 paper (8.5"x11"). To save time, you can directly print it onto your patterned paper.

Once you are done, score it and fold it. Ink the edges. Put it aside.

Next, I gathered different paper flowers that I got from the craft store, bundled it and wrapped it with green ribbon. If you have wired ribbon or green tape, that'd definitely save your time.

I applied the 2 corners using the Kokuyo Dotliner. I used the dotliner because it'll be easier for the recipient to open it. You'll know why in the next step.

After measuring the length of the lace, stick it down. I snipped a little hole in the middle (at the opening) so I can poke the bundle of flowers thru the little hole I made in the lace.

Last step, I also added pearl trims to give the shabby-vintage look to my small gift box.
Make sure you don't stick the pearl trims all around the box :)

Voila... here's the completed "Shabby Gift Box"...

I added the brown jute and also a punched butterfly.
Hope you like this very simple tutorial :)

Wanna know what's inside the little box?

A pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings I made. Aren't they lovely?
