It's my turn to post on the Studio 12 blog again today and I have a little gift idea to show you using a box template and the Studio 12 Picknix CD ...
I printed two sheets of the pink polkadot paper, reloaded them into the printer and then printed the box template on the reverse. I cut, scored, folded and inked the pieces before cutting an aperture into the front using my nestabilities. I secured a piece of acetate behind the aperture and added a scalloped circle border around the outside. Once glued together the box was decorated with a sentiment from the CD, a little heart and charm, some die cut flowers and the cute little pink daisies from the CD. I nestled some tissue paper in the bottom of the box and filled with chocolate, before fastening with a piece of co-ordinating organza ribbon. A lovely little gift which took me about 40 minutes to create (which my daughter then tried to pinch. How rude!).
Note: the box template is from the Polkadoodles 'Paper Boutique' (Vol 1) CD.
Have a great weekend,
