Color & Contour - Gift Box (9"x5¼"x2½")

In today's Video I show you how I created this Large Gift Box. 

I used the Color & Contour stamp set and coordinating Scalloped Contour dies together with some of the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

The Gift Box is 9" tall, 5¼" wide and 2½" deep. I used card measuring 11½" long for this box. If your standard card is 8½"x11" and you don't want to cut into a 12" sheet, just make the length 11" - your finished box will be 8½" tall instead :o)

I sized my Gift Box to hold a specific gift - you can get two large bottles of toiletries inside - these hold 500ml each!

Unfortunately my puppy got ahold of my box when I went to get my gift to go inside it and he tore the lid - I did manage to save it thank heavens but it's getting harder to create Videos at the moment with him awake! :o)

Of course I had to also create a matching card.

The sentiment is from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Here is the Video ...
