Y'all just HAVE to make some of these boxes, I have had so much fun making them and I can't wait to make more but my laptop battery has to charge and the desktop computer needs a new power supply and UPS hasn't brought me a new one yet. The square box is the small square box from the SVGcuts.com set "Big Boutique Boxes", this is the coolest set, I will be making a ton of these boxes!! The tree box is from the "Christmas Gift Bags and Boxes" and right now, this is free with any $9.99 purchase, just use the coupon code FREEGIFT. The poinsettia on the top of the box is from the SVGcuts.com set "3D Wintergreens" This was so fun to cut and create. OK, so let me give you the "recipe" for each item, first the small square box, I cut this one at the size it comes (I resisted resizing it LOL) it took two 8.5x11 sheets of cardstock and one 12x12 piece of cardstock. It ended up being 4.75 x 4.75 inches square. I wanted a drippy poinsettia to cover the top, like a high end boutique box (LOL) so I used the poinsettia file from the 3D Wintergreens set (not the spindly one) and resized it to cover the top. I used Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on the leaves and petals (I wish I could but this stuff by the 55 gallon drum, I love it that good!) I assembled it with glue dots and one pop dot to give some dimension, and a pearl in the center. The Christmas tree box took two sheets of 8.5x11 sheets of cardstock and then two small scraps in different greens. I decorated my tree with a gold foil star (from an old Creative Memories Limited Edition punch) and some Irock jewels that I colored with Copic markers, I colored a few red, a few green and left a few clear. I just love these boxes and I can't wait to make more, everyone on my Christmas list is getting something in a handmade box this year. Please go to SVGcuts.com and check them out, they have some great files, and just so you know, they do not sponsor me in any way nor do I get anything free for telling you about them, I just really love their files and I think you will too!!!
