Stampin' Up Bubble & Fizz Large Gin Glass Gift Box

I am really pleased with how this project turned out.  For ages now I have been trying to design a gift box that would hold a large Spanish Balloon Gin glass but could not work it out because the glasses are so big that even 12x12 cardstock was not big enough.  Then after persevering I finally did it!



Size

The box is 8" tall, 4 1/4" wide and 4 1/4" deep. To make the box this size I had to make a lining to enable me to achieve this proportion.

Measurements

I used 2 A4 sheets of Extra Thick Whisper White trimmed down slightly to 11 5/8 x 8 Score @ 1 7/8 on all 4 sides

I used a little over 3 A4 sheets of Lemon Lime Twist cut as follows:
A4 length x 4 1/4 - 2 of these scored @ 1 15/16 at each end
4 end sections 4 1/4 x 4 3/16
Mats: 
1: 7 3/4 x 4 
4: 1 5/8 x 7 3/4
4: 1 5/8 x 4

I used about 3/4s of a sheet of Bubble & Fizz DSP (which is free with a £45 order not including P&P)  this was cut as follows:
1: 3 3/4 x 7 1/2
4: 1 3/8 x 7 1/2
4: 1 3/8 x 3 3/4 


Now that you have all the paper and cardstock, watch the video tutorial below and craft along with me :-) 





To decorate

I used the new Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon that features in the New Spring Summer Catalogue, the sentiment is from the  Perennial Birthday stamp set and the bubbles are from the Bubble Over stamp set 
I used the 2" Punch for the sentiment and the Starburst punch in Lemon Lime Twist to mat it onto. I punched a hole in the circle and used some bakers twine to attach it to the ribbon. I thought that having it swing free was better than it being stuck down.






Thanks for joining me :-)
