How to make a pretty gift box for a handmade bracelet







Hello folks,
i am back with a little tutorial about how to make a box to present a handmade bracelet beautifully.

I am currently working on an order of 50 of those boxes and i also have taken several orders for my Christmas baubles, hence the delay in any new tutorials or projects.
As i know you are all eagerly waiting for new great projects, i can only show you what i am currently working on so bear with me, i will come up with a very beautiful Christmas Cracker Style box shortly once i have completed my orders.

The video tutorial for this little box is here:



The measurements for this box are as follows:

For the box, cut a piece of card stock to 7 3/8" x 7 3/8" and score at 1" and 2 " on all 4 sides.
For the lid, cut a piece of card stock to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and score at 1/2" and 1 " on all 4 sides.

For the white insert, cut a piece of white card stock to 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and score at 1/2" on all 4 sides, use a 2 1/4" circle die or punch to cut the center .
cut a strip of 7 1/2" x 1" in white, too and curl until it fits in the center .
Cut a piece of white card stock to 3 1/4" x 31/4" and glue to the bottom of you box, then place insert and curled strip on top.
You could run both pieces through your embossing machine, too if you prefer it textured.
To decorate the top of the box, cut a piece of white card stock to 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and run through your embossing machine.

I hope you are pleased with my short video on how to make it and have fun creating not only your personal box but also a bracelet maybe?
Thanks for dropping by today and see you next time soon
