Inspiration comes from the oddest places. My nephew came over yesterday and brought me the cutest little chocolate box sampler. It had four yummy chocolates in it, which I quickly devoured.Â I began to examine the boxÂ and of course, took it apart and made a template. This was such fun! Obviously, I oohed and aahed over my Paper Temptress papers and choseÂ Laser SilverÂ Lustre and Premium Glossy Gold. The Lustre line is sturdy paper that works well for making into boxes and the Premium Glossy is lighter weight and embosses like a dream ! So now the question is…….Are you a Diamonds or a Pearls kinda gal?
I am a Pearls kinda galÂ and have you noticed, so is Michelle Obama. So here is the gift box opened. The open box that holds the pearls, slips inside of the gold embossed sleeve and then it all closes up neatly with some velcro dots.
So here is my TIP for the day;
Look at everything, and I DO mean everything with a different eye. There could be a project waiting to be made.
Jackie so kindly created a template for this project which can be downloaded here.Â Just simply print the template on the back of the paper you want to use!!Â What could be easier? Â Here are the KNK cutter files for this gift box, cut black lines and score red!Â And here are the same files but in .ai format,Â you can usually format these to use in most digital cutters!Â So get cutting and Enjoy!!
