Hi there crafty Oddies. It’s Vera here today. I am excited to start this week as we the Oddies will be showcasing projects that are non-card.
For my non-card I decided to do a gift box. My niece birthday is coming up in a couple months and as teenager she is into jewelry, so I decided to make a cute jewelry box to hold my gift. Let’s take a look at the box, shall we?
To create the box, I turned to my Silhouette. I called my Silhouette the gift that keep on giving. I just love this machine. So, to create my box, I pull up the box file and cut it out. (Note: I totally forgot to take the step by step picture till my box already completed, thus why the step by step pic has different color cardstock as I didn’t have enough of the same color cardstock to duplicate my original box.) The file I used is call Adorable Box 2. Re-size the box to the size that you need and you will end up with the bottom piece, top piece and scallop piece.
Even though the Silhouette makes a mark to where you should fold the paper, I prefer to use my Scor-pal to get the clean lines.
Here’s the box once you glued everything. Now, the circle part is open and since I want to use this box to hold jewelry, I added a piece of acetate measured slightly smaller than the cover size and adhere it underneath the box cover to close the opening.
Then I stamp the image, color it with marker and fussy cut the image before I adhere it to the box. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock and snip the end into banner and adhere to the box with pop-dots. Add a few sequins to finish the box.
Here’s how it look straight from the front.
This is an easy project to replicate and would also be perfect to hold birthday goodies to give away at birthday party. Another idea, if you do the bottom pat of the box high, you could use it to pack individual cupcake. Just remember to make the box high enough, so when you put the top it wouldn’t squish the cupcake. 🙂 Don’t you think Mae’s dress would enhance the cuteness of the cupcake?
So, what about you. Do you often do non-card project? And when you do it random or for special occasion only? As always, we love to hear your feedback. Thank you so much for swinging by here and please come back tomorrow for more ideas from the Oddies. Have a fabulous week!
