Quick -n- Easy Gift Boxes: featuring Time of Giving Bundle!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my Facebook LIVE replay for you. I created two cute little Gift Boxes featuring the Time of Giving Bundle … You’ll be surprised at how easy this is to make! Formally know as the 2-4-6-8 Boxes … I’ve done a little adjusting to make the box a little bigger so it could hold more goodies!!

And what would you put into these little cuties? Well … candy works great, or cookies!! But you could also put in little toys for a child, or how about a get well kit with hand sanitizer, tissues, maybe some tea … you could have so much fun with this.

Speaking of tea … grab a cup or some coffee and join me for the replay of my LIVE last night.

I have the dimensions for you so you can make some of these little cuties yourself! Let’s begin ….

  1. Start with an 11″ x 5-1/2″ piece of cardstock (on sale thru Nov.18th, 2021)
  2. On the 11″ lenght; Score at 2″ … 5″ … 7″ and 10″. Cut 1/2″ off end if prefered.
  3. Turn cardstock 90 degrees and on the 5-1/2″ length; score at 1-1/2″.
  4. Cut on score lines as shown in the video
  5. Designer Series Paper: 2 pieces: 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and 2 pieces: 2-3/4/” x 3-3/4″
  6. Attach the designer paper onto box … except the front piece which you will cut to create window.
  7. Use the smaller of the two dies and cut through both the designer paper and cardstock. Make sure it is aligned.
  8. Remover designer paper and cut with larger of the two dies.
  9. Attach window sheet … either onto inside of box or between the box and designer paper
  10. Glue side flap (1/2″) and then bottom flaps as shown in video.

The first box was created with Shaded Spruce cardstock and the Tidings of Christmas Designer paper. The greeting comes from the Time of Giving Bundle and is stamped in Real Red … the box is embellished with the Red Rhinestones.

I used the Layering Oval dies to create window on both of the boxes …

The second box was created with Cajun Craze cardstock and the Pattern Party Designer Series paper from our exclusive Hostess Rewards. Greeting comes from the Time of Giving Bundle and is stamped with Cajun Craze!

I embellished this box using the die cut leaves from the bundle and the stunning Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper. They are even cuter close up.

I hope I have inspired you to try these little cuties … it really is so simple to make, and you can fill it with anything you wish. A perfect gift for a friend, a co-worker, a child, someone who’s sick or anyone who you want to Thank you too.

A Treat Box for Every Reason …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some cute treat / gift boxes that are super easy to make! These boxes will be celebrating Halloween, Christmas and a time for friends. One 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper will make 2 boxes. Once you start making these boxes … you’re going to want more paper!

This very first box was created with the Forever Greenery Product Suite. The cute little stitched circle die cut comes from the Heartwarming Hugs bundle and the leaves were cut directly from a wreath cut using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle.

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and join me while I take you step by step creating this simple box …

So easy right? I will also be sharing the dimensions with you, as promised in the video. I thought it would be fun to share the box made in this video along with the card I made in last weeks video. You can find all my videos on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape YouTube Channel … please subscribe while you are there 🙂

The next little treat box celebrates Christmas … I used the Heartwarming Hugs Product Suite. With so many amazing papers in this package, it was hard to choose one … hope you like it!

The “For You” badge was fun to make … first I stamped it in Real Red on Whisper White and die cut it with this die that cuts out the center as well. The cool die that mats the circle is a fun shape to work with. The tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz.

I wrapped a ribbon around the top and tied a bow on … you don’t always need a handle! The next treat box I want to share is my Halloween one …

My Oh My … I had fun with this one!! I wrapped the top and created the handle with Pretty Peacock cardstock … along with a piece die cut with the fun shape from the Heartwarming Hugs! Using that die I also cut a piece from the Black Glitter paper… together they make a fun design behind the greeting.

I blinged out the handle with more of the Black Glitter paper and those lovely Iridescent Pearls. The next treat box was created with the same Magic in this Night suite … No handle!

This one was created with the help of the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin. The greeting, the hat, the flower and the mini doily are all from the Paper Pumpkin kit! I’ll be sharing more about the upcoming Paper Pumpkin soon.

Here are the dimensions for our treat / gift box ….

I hope you have enjoyed today’s project share … they were really fun to make. I wasn’t kidding when I said that once you start making them that you’ll want more paper ….

Don’t forget that 15 of our designer papers are 15% Off until the 31st of this month. The deadline is coming up soon. Let me know if you need any help placing your order.

Thank you for joining me today …

Have a wonderful day!
