Geared Up Garage - Masculine Gift Box

Today I'm sharing a Video showing you how I created this lovely Gift Box.

I used the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears dies.

The Acetate is our Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and is now sadly retired. 'Sadly' because I hadn't even opened mine! I am currently making a concerted effort to use up some of my supplies, so occasionally you will see me use some retired product. We do have more Mercury Glass Acetate coming soon with the Mini Catalogue in January - a different colour - so if you like this look you will have an opportunity to get some then :o)

As an alternative to the Acetate I used, you could use our clear Window Sheet, any Designer Series Paper or any Cardstock - the measurements will all be the same :o)

The Box is 5" square and 3 1/2" tall.

I used some of our Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock to tie the Box - this slides off to open it.

Of course, I also had to create a card :o) I used all the same products. The sentiment is from the Zany Zebras stamp set.

Here is the Video ...


Pretty Peacock                                                          12” x 12”


Score on all sides at 3½”


Mercury Glass Designer Acetate                     8 1/16” x 8 1/16”


Score on all sides at 1½”



Seaside Spray                                                             5” x 5”

Mercury Glass Designer Acetate                   2x 1¾”

Ribbon approx.                                                          22”


You will need additional Pretty Peacock and Whisper White card to complete this project.


Note: As an alternative to the Mercury Glass Acetate you could use plain Window Sheet/Acetate, Cardstock or Designer Series Paper - or you could use any other printed acetate that you have on hand. We do have more of this acetate coming with our new Mini Catalogue in January.
