you seen these gorgeous silver Gable Boxes in the Spring/Summer catalogue (page 13)?
When I first saw them I thought
weddings, but I’ve found they can be used for so much more depending on
how they’re decorated.
Who wouldn’t love to receive one of these Easter
Boxes, especially when they find out there are some chocolate mini eggs
These boxes are a very generous 4″ x 2″ x 2″, which also make them a lovely size for
Easter gifts that are calorie free!
It’s available as bundle, with the
Blossoming Basket Stamp Set, and is a level 2 gift for an €120/£90
Why not make sure you get it for free with a €120/£90
order during SAB? Trust me,you will not be disappointed!
was a bit tricky getting this box to go through my Big Shot, but it went
although not without damaging one oF the corners slightly – see the last photograph!
With the stunning effect the EF has given the box, I doubt if anyone will notice
the damaged corner!
Apart from the close up photograph, did you notice it?
The way I made this Easter box doesn’t really need much explanation, apart from the embossing.
Using my guillotine, I cut off
the bottom edges so the green stems went off the edge of the Whisper White
I gently fold the strip around the box giving a squeeze on the corners to find out how much of the length I needed, and
cut off the tremaining 2″ or 3″.
adhere the strip to the box, I adhered Tear & Tape along the inside
bottom, as well as along the highest straight point of the strip.
I adhered the front piece first,
then followed around, until I was back to the beginning except for the
last side, which I’d saved till last.
used the same Marker Pens to colour the GOD IS LOVE stamp from the Hold
on to Hope Stamp Set, which I did twice so I had one banner back and
front. Using the banner die from the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies, I die cut them both, and adhered them to the slanted sides of the box lid.
Using Wild Wasabbi
Ink, I took some scrap Whisper White CS and stamped the HAPPY EASTER
sentiment from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set and stamped two
After punching them both out using the Classic Label Punch, I
put the right-hand end of the strip back into the punch to shorten the
sentiment to the required length.
The second to last photograph shows both th embossed and the debossed patterns the EF produces!
