Today's project is a cute box containing decorated T Lights - a perfect thank you gift. I first saw this idea demonstrated by Amanda Fowler at a Pinkies team training event a couple of years ago - thank you Amanda!
With the introduction of the Simply Scored Scoring Tool this box is now super speedy to make. I have done a quick tutorial to show how easy it is.
The box base was made from a piece of Calypso Coral card cut to 7 1/2" x 4 3/4": ( I am so glad this colour is staying with us as part of the Colour Refresh!)
The sleeve is a piece of Baja Breeze (retiring so get it while you can!) card cut to 6" x 4 1/2"
Score at 7/8", 2 3/4", 3 5/8" and 5 1/2" as shown:
Using a Framelit from Apothecary Accents Framelits and the Big Shot cut an aperture in the sleeve. Stick a piece of Window Sheet behind the aperture to prevent the contents falling out of the box!
Fold along the score marks and stick the sleeve together.
A tag was stamped using the sentiment from Kindness Matters and cut out using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits. Punch out a flower using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack finish with a Pearl Basic Jewel.
Have you noticed the T Lights have had a make-over? I used the fabulous NEW Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape to decorate them. A genius idea suggested by the super talented Sam Donald. And of course because this is Stampin' Up! the Calypso Coral colour matches perfectly!
The box was then tied up with a piece of the gorgeous Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon. And there you go - all ready to go!
Hope you find this useful - I would love to hear from you if you make this so don't forget to leave me a comment.
