This is such a pretty present to give someone and apart from your time (that is priceless obviously) it is really inexpensive and would be oh so treasured!
The base and lid are made using a Grand Nestabilities die – Grand Labels One, but remember you can tweak the project to use any suitable die that you have. Layered onto the cream 300gsm card used on the base are some smaller sized labels one – these are made from backing papers from the Holly Pond Hill CD that have been stuck onto plain grey board that you would get on the back of pads of paper or in your orders if you order card or paper from us!
The little topper is made from the CD too and layered onto some cream card that has been embossed with a Swiss Dots embossing folder – but again it could be any that you own.
Assemble the ‘box’ by taking the base and the lid – cut a long strip of card about an inch deep and score it so that it makes a square shape. Decorate (and disguise the overlap where you sealed it) with swiss dot embossed paper. Glue this onto the base allowing two pieces of ribbon to stick under this square, they will be the hinges.
Remember to add the loop of ribbon between the cream lid and the smaller backing paper piece of the lid and hide the ends of the ribbon hinges between these layers too.
Finally cut a stack of paper/thin card to fill the box and add a ribbon and a pen or pencil.
