Gift Box for 3 Yankee Candles

Here is my latest project, you can watch it on YouTube here Click to view!

I wanted to make a gift box for 3 Yankee Candles.  I wanted the candles to sit neatly and not move about. So I designed an inner section to the box that would hold each candle.

The inner section measures 7 1/8 x 2 7/8

This was then scored on all 4 sides at 1/2 and inch.

The main box was created using a 12x12 piece of cardstock cut to 10 3/4 x 9
Scored on long side at 2 1/4 & 8 1/2
Scored on short side at 1/2 - 2 1/2 - 4 3/4 - 6 3/4

I really like the sloping sides of this box, it gives the gift a wow factor.

The belly band around the box was 10 x 3 - I used the Fresh Florals DSP to match the 2017-2019 in colour inks, card stock and ribbon. This is what I really love about Stampin Up, it all coordinates really well.

I added ribbon around the belly band to give some extra wow and matted the sentiment (Label me Pretty)  so it did not get lost on the floral background. I used the Finely Woven Ribbon as it matches the in colours beautifully.
