this morning I posted my video which shows how I made this gift box.
It’s to hold a
key ring, which I’ll be sending to all my June online customers as my
personal Thank You for shopping with me!
This is as well as the hostess
gift they’ll receive through the Hostess Club I run each month. ☺
box closure was inspired by a box I saw Sam Hammond make on one of her
I had to change the measurements, width and length to fit my
gift, but kept the closure feature!
I also changed to a sheet of Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP)
instead of our regular DSP, partly because the gift is quite
weighty, and also because it needs to go through the post.
I only had
two sheets of current Specialty DSP which were from the Eastern Palace
I found four 12″ x 12″ sheets from the
now-retired Pop of Pink Specialty DSP, but that still wasn’t enough!
Next I started using the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP.
I bought an extra pack just
before the catalogue expired!
This is a very easy box to make and I did have an happy accident while I was working out the sizes I needed.
I decided to make the same “mistake” on the other side, and then carried on!
The result was lovely!
These extra score lines, resulted in two debossed lines on either side on the front and back of the box about 1/4″ in!
I was so pleased with the effect, I added it onto all the boxes!
On Friday, hubby bought a new printer/copier/scanner as our old one had become unreliable.
He took the old printer out of the office and put it on the floor in the bathroom because he didn’t want to put it on the carpet.
Hubby then took the new machine to the desk and noticed a small pool of what appeared to be navy blue ink. He cleaned it up and asked me to check under the old printer in the bathroom while he picked it up.
Yes, there was ink on the bottom, but it wasn’t dripping and hadn’t marked the bathroom floor. Hubby carried on installing the new printer. When he had finished, he went to the bathroom, picked up the old printer and carried it through to the bedroom, so he could pack it away in the box the new printer had arrived in.
Unknown to him, a couple of steps out of the bathroom the printer started leaking onto the carpet. Hubby only saw what was happening when he bent down to put the old printer in the box!
I wish you a very blessed Sunday. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
