Decorated gift box with video

Hello crafters! Today I am excited to share a decorated gift box I made, using Best Birds stamps and Birds & Blooms dies. The box and acetate (clear) band are precut and available in a pack of 8 from Stampin’ Up! and they work perfectly to decorate for any holiday. For this project, I want a springtime look that would also pass for Easter. I have made a few other boxes which I will feature next week. Can you say bunnies and carrots ?!?!?

measurements for this project:
The box & band are precut to 3″ x 3″ and ready to use (& foodsafe!)
Sahara Sand card stock strip: 2″ wide by 8″ long
(this strip is scored at 2 1/2″, then score 3″ from that mark)
Whisper White scraps for die cuts


I used stamps and matching die to decorate the belly band of the box.  Best Birds and Birds & Blooms dies are a great way to get a fresh, spring look to a project. I chose to make the flowers pink, thinking of cherry blossoms. The actual box is great for direct stamping. I stamped all four sides before I opened and folded it together. Keeping the box flat made for easy stamping. The Sahara Sand banner is created by cutting a strip of card stock 2″ wide, and punching each end.


For a visual demonstration of this project, take a look at the video I made for this project.

I loved making this box and I can not WAIT to send it to a friend. Most of the excitement in my creating is designing things that someone will like to hold in their hand. Let them know they are are thought of and it could mean more than you know. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I’m so glad you are here 🙂
