Wrap it up!

Hey Anni here!
Today Ihave a gift box for you.

I have four teenager nephews - yes four. And I have no idea what to get a teenager for christmas or for birthday. So nearly every year I give away gift cards. And to make it just a little bit more personal I create gift boxes for my nephews!

  • Stamp and heat emboss the presents with white embossing powder.
  • Stamp the presents another time on white paper. Add the little reindeers ad santas.
  • Color with Copics.
  • Fuzzy cut both gift images.
  • Wrap twine around the colored present and add the little tag.
  • Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment and cut into a banner.
  • Assemble the box.

  • The gift pile is a big stamp. You don't have to use the whole stamp every time. Just cut away the presents you don't need.
  • Put the focal point on one present: Make it special: Put twine around it, add all the cute little images in the set, add some glitter, paper pierce it... There are so many oppurtunities!
  • There is no need to mask the giftif you add the small images! Just stamp over the edge and then cut it out!
  • Don't be shy to use your handwriting to your projects. It makes it so much more individual.
  • I think the easiest way to create a gift box is to use a die. It will be worth the purchase.
