18th Birthday Gift Box With Stampin' Up!® Tranquil Textures

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Hi and welcome back, today I am showing you how I made a matching gift box for the exploding box card I shared the other day. As it was a social birthday I wanted the gift to look special as well. So here is what I cam up with. The present was in a tin so I want a non lidded box for it, I just wanted it to slip in but wanted the bottom of the box secured.

Video tutorial 


Click below to see how I made it and thenI will share with you how I went about designing and sizing the box.



Measurements and Materials 



Working out the box size

  • I measure the 3 dimensions of the box width, length and depth
  • I decided I wanted a closed bottom and a flap to tuck in at the top
  • Now I needed to draw a grid

I think you can see that the box matches the card really well. 

I hope you will have a go at making a box for an item using my template, let me know if it works!
