I stumbled across this Stampin’ Up! video about box making and I found it to be fantastic!!! The Stampin’ Up! Gift Box Punch Board is great for making really small boxes but this video shows how to make larger ones. You are only limited by the size of the cardstock. Stampin’ Up!’s heavy cardstock and Designer Series Paper is perfect for making these boxes. I have made boxes in the past and sometimes I have used different paper/cardstock on the bottom and lid but I have never made a box with a shorter lid so that both colors show (not sure I would even know how to figure out the math for that!). In this video Donna shows how to make custom sized boxes and even rectangular boxes (I am sure I would not know how to figure out the math for that!!). With colorful cardstock and even patterned paper for the lid, all tied up with cute ribbon, you have great gift packaging with no wrapping needed. Gift packaging is needed all year long but especially at this time of year!!! Check out the video and let me know your favorite part. While you are there view some of the other great YouTube Stampin’ Up! videos. Happy Box Making!!!
