Today I have a Christmas Gift Box to show you, created with the beautiful Creative Expressions Craft Dies designed by Sue Wilson. This collection of Christmas dies is called Festive Collection. I absolutely love these dies, they are elegant and beautifully detailed.
For my American friends, you can also see the entire Festive Collection Here.
These are the Craft Dies by Sue Wilson used to make the Christmas Gift Box:
1. To make the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" box base, cut one 14 1/2" x 8" piece of cream cardstock.
Score the long side at 1/2", 4", 7 1/2" and 11".
Score the short side at 4 1/2".
2. Cut in to the score line to make the bottom flaps of the box and side 1/2" seam.
Fold along the scored lines, glue the side seam in and bottom flaps to form box base.
3. For the lid, cut one 5 5/8" x 5 5/8" piece of cream cardstock.
Score at 1" along all 4 sides
4. Cut each corner up to the scored line as pictured below.
Fold and adhere all 4 tabs to form the box lid.
5. Using designer paper, cut four 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" pieces. Adhere to all 4 sides of box base.
6. Using Framed Noel die, cut 4 pieces with cream cardstock. Adhere to all 4 sides of box.
7. Using designer paper, cut four 3 3/8" x 7/8" pieces. Adhere to all 4 sides of lid.
Cut one 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece and adhere to top of box lid.
8. To make the flower, die cut the petals using Classic Poinsettia for the bottom layer and Mosaic Poinsettia for the top layer. Glue layers together, shape petals and adhere together with foam squares to form flower.
9. Die cut leaves using Holly Accessory Kit and Holly Sprays sets. Glue leaves under Poinsettia and adhere to box lid. Embellish berries with Stickles.
