Gift Box - Using Winter Woods - Video Tutorial

In today's Video I take you through how I created this Gift Box. This time, I also show you how I calculate the measurements I needed for the sizes of cardstock to cut and the score lines.

Some people really struggle when creating Bags and Boxes especially if they need different sizes to the ones shown. I hope that by showing you how I calculate the measurements it will help you adjust them for your own needs :o)

The Designer Series paper I used for this Box is retired. It is from the Bundle of Love specialty pack. I had a full pack left and it's my goal to use it all up for this Christmas ... I'm nearly there :o)

This paper is actually a cardstock, so it's perfect for creating boxes with. You could use any card or thick paper that you have.

The Box opens on the top. It's a very simple design that I use a lot. 

The method I show you in this Video is not the only way to create it - there are many different ways of creating the same box :o)

I used the Winter Woods stamp set for my front panel. It gives such a lovely classic look to the box.

The Black Satin ribbon is retired. We still sell Black Satin but it is slightly narrower. I've linked it below as it would still be perfect for this project.

Here is the Video ...


Cardstock / DSP                                                      8”x 8 

Score at ¾”, 6¾” and 7½”

Quarter turn clockwise and REPEAT the scoring

Cardstock / DSP                                                      6¾”x 6½”  

With the SHORTER side across the top, score at 6”

Quarter turn clockwise and score at ¾”

Ribbon                                                                      70cm / 25” approx.

You will need additional Very Vanilla card for stamping and die cutting and Basic Black card for die cutting.
