Blackberry Beauty Thin Necklace Gift Box with Insert. Ink Stamp Share Monthly Blog Hop. August 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

This afternoon I'm taking part in the Ink Stamp Share  Blog Hop, where us Crafty folk will be showing you some wonderful projects using products from the new Mini Catalogue.

I have a friends' birthday coming up, so I decided to create this lovely gift box to gift a necklace I have bought for her in. Don't get me wrong the original packaging is cute and nothing wrong with it at all, but being a crafter I wanted to make something myself. I'm not the only to do this, right? Haha! 


Cinnamon Cider Card Stock

1pc - 7 1/2" x 7 1/2"

1pc - 2 3/4" x 5 3/4"

1pc - scrap

Blackberry Beauty DSP

1pc - 2 3/4" x 5 3/4"

1pc - 5 7/8" x 2 7/8"

2pc - 5 7/8" x 3/8"

1pc - 3/8" x 2 7/8"

Gold Foil

1pc - Scrap

Take the largest piece of Cinnamon  Cider and using your simply scored, score on one side at 1/2", 1" and 7", then on the second side at 1/2", 3 1/2",4" and 7". Fold and burnish all the score lines well.

Cut away at your card stock so you are left with this shape...

Now, add the DSP panels to the spaces as above.

On a scrap of cinnamon cider, stamp the sentiment and cut out with a smooth oval, then a scallop oval in gold, layer and add to the front.

Finally, add the remaining piece of DSP to the remaining piece of cinnamon cider round the corners of . Using a hole punch cut two small circles in the top.. try to get these are equal and straight as possible. Then from the corners, snip a diagonal line to the circles as below.... this will help you add the necklace with ease.
