One - Sheet Lidded Gift Boxes

I have found, over the last year or so, that I love making boxes and bags.  My favorite boxes to make are inspired by Sam Hammond, AKA Pootles, on her blog (http://pootles.co.uk/) OR another favorite of mine - Julie DiMatteo, on her blog (https://thepaperpixie.com/).  They both have wonderful projects, wonderful blog posts, and wonderful, easy to follow video instructions.  My favorite boxes to make start with cutting and scoring, not even using the punch board.  Over the next few posts, I'll be sharing a few of my box creations with you.  I hope you'll be inspired to try a few. 
I just love that these boxes each started out from a 12 X 12" piece of DSP.  I used the fancy side of the DSP to make my boxes as pretty as could be.
I used bits of our fun Ready Shreddie, popped a few treats nestled in it, closed the box and tied it with a pretty ribbon.
By using some embellishments from our Sweet Soiree Embellishments Kit, this was really a pretty quick project - and actually quite easy. 
Aren't these embellishments cute?
These are some of the largest boxes I've made.  They hold a surprising amount of goodies.
I hope you enjoyed these boxes and will come back to see some smaller ones that are cute as can be.

  1. These boxes are so elegant. You could give a gift to most anyone and they would love the box as much as the gift inside of the box. I know I would.
