Hey! I’ve had this triangle box on my desk for a couple of months. I had it decorated but decided I didn’t like how it was decorated, so I un-decorated it and left it sitting there for a while. Then I suddenly grabbed it the other day, and voila. New Christmas box. This time I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The triangle box design is copied from this video by Sam Donald. She’s brilliant at boxes, and I cannot see in 3D, so I often CASE her box designs and decorate them in my own style. [Note: I use the Envelope Punch Board to round corners, and I use my Trimmer to cut and score for boxes, but you can also use the Simply Scored like Sam does.]
I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the box, then tied it. Before tying the bow, I laid Linen Thread across the criss-crossed part of the ribbon, then tied the bow. Then I tied the Linen Thread around the bow knot once, threaded on one of the Mini Ornaments, then tied a knot in the Linen Thread. I adore these ornaments! They’re made of some kind of hard plastic or glass and just the perfect size for gift packaging.
I attached the boughs (cut from Garden Green cardstock and Silver Foil Sheets with the Pretty Pines thinlits) with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, behind the bow, then attached the sentiment from Merry Little Labels with Dimensionals (only put Dimensionals on the part of the tag that is on the top flap — you don’t want your recipient to have to destroy this beautiful box to open it! Finally, I uncurled one of the Boxwood Wreaths embellishments and attached it (using Glue Dots) to the box using Glue Dots.
The box would fit 5-6 Hershey’s Nuggets, so it would be perfect for teacher’s gifts, fancy stocking stuffers, or just a little extra something under the tree.
Thanks for stopping by today!
