I love to make gifts when ever I have a chance.  I also love to make the package for them.  I usually keep the supplies on hand so I can make one really fast.  I’ve used them a lot for Weddings, Showers and Baby Gifts. 

gift-boxThis is a sample of the box I made to put the gift in.  I love the wheels because it is so fast to decorate the box and they look really cute.  I used.  109688 Whimsy Jumbo Wheel $8.50 for this box.  Then I just used a piece of paper from the Simply Scrapin’ Kit that I created the gift with.  You could use any Simply Scrapin’ Kit or DSP.  The one pictured here is an old one that is retired now.

The box is so easy to make.  Just decide on your size and depth then score the sides to fit.  Cut in on the score on just one side all the way around then fold and attach with mini glue dots or sticky strip.  I always make the top box 1/16 bigger so they slide together nicely.  Then the box is just finished with a belly band that slides off  to open the gift.

family-ssk-boardThis is the gift that I made to put in the box.  It is using the same Simply Scrapin’  Kit.  I’ve just cut it to fit on one of our on board book basics Large#110713 $7.95 for 4.  I love this gift because it is so easy to create and you can change it for about any occasion.  The picture part is sized perfectly for a 4×6 photo.  Then you just put it on a plate rack holder and it’s a darling picture frame with lots of character.
