Abstract Beauty Birthday Bracelet Gift Box. Stamp n Hop Old & New Blog Hop. January 2022

 Good Evening Everyone

I hope you are all well. Today I have a fun gift box to share with you for the Stamp n Hop Old & New Blog Hop.

I have a friends birthday coming and I have bought her the loveliest handmade bracelet I picked up at a Christmas Fair and as much as the packaging was pretty, I wanted to make a box to hold it in, after all that's what we do, right? It's been wrapped in some tissue paper and sits snuggly inside. It measures.... 


Basic Black Card Stock 

1pc - 7 1/2" x 5 1/4"


Basic White Card Stock 


Abstract Beauty DSP 

1pc - 5 7/8" x 1 3/8"

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

2pc - 5/8" x 1 3/8"


Take the piece of basic black card Stock and score as follows....

Long Side - 3/4" & 6 3/4"

Short Side - 3/4", 2 1/4", 3" & 4 1/2"

Fold and burnish the score lines really well getting really sharp crisp folds.

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

Add the DSP to the black card like so...

Add a small thumb notch to the skinny edge which has DSP on it. I don't have a small circle punch so i used the tip of my tailored tag Punch to create a tiny V shape.

Add tear and tape to the four small tabs you snipped into earlier and fold in to create the base. These should all fold around the plain black rectangle.

On a scrap of basic white, stamp the sentiment in Magenta Madness and cut out with the smooth oval from the double oval punch, and also two plain basic black ones. Add the black ovals under the basic white piece, making sure you have equal black showing at either side. Add this to the lid of the box.

I hope you have enjoyed today's Project. Please continue through the hop for lots more inspiration. Cheryl is up next, so click on the button below to head on over to see what she has made today.....
