Hi stamping friends 🙂 December is here and it’s time to share a fun project that can make a quick gift for so many people that you want to give a little something this holiday season. The kids can even help make these as teacher gifts! DSC_0077

 

Here are the supplies you’ll need:

Start with a piece of Candy Red Shimmering Cardstock measuring 3-3/4″ x 8-3/4″. Score it on the first line on the BOX LID side of the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion:

box1

Cut small slits on the score lines as shown and assemble box bottom using very strong double sided tape

box2

Next create the outer portion of the box using another piece of Candy Red Shimmering Cardstock, measuring 7-7/8″ x 8-1/8″, score on line 4 & 5 (on the BOX BASE side), then flip the cardstock and score on lines 4&5 on the other side of the cardstock, still using the BOX side of the tool as shown: box5

Wrap the outer portion of the box over the box and adhere with red liner tape.

Using a piece of black cardstock measuring 1-1/2″ x 8-1/4″, score on lines 4&5 on the BOX BASE side of the tool, flip and score on lines 4&5 again. It is the same exact scoring as you just did with the red cardstock.

Wrap around the outer box and adhere with red liner tape. box7

Here’s what the back of the box will look like:box8

Next using a strip of White Pearl Shimmering Cardstock 2″ wide, punch a 1-3/8″ square. I find using a strip is much easier than cutting the square the size you want and trying to center the punch perfectly! Once the square is punched out, simply cut the sides so that the outer square measures 2″. This square can be covered in liquid glue and glitter if desired, then adhered to the black strip.box9For the chocolates, print the words “happy holidays” and three symbols of your choice onto Avery 5160 address labels or equivalent as shown, and wrap each chocolate in a letter or symbol:

You can use different combinations of words to customize your project. box4

For the tag, simply print the sentiment of your choice onto white cardstock and cut out or use a die, then tie to the belt buckle with silver cord.
