Pootlers Team Swaps: Matchbox Gift Box

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Thank you for joining me today. I am so excited about this weekend. When you read this I will be half way through a team retreat. The Pootlers are getting together! We have such fun when we meet, we share crafting and laughs, lots of laughs. As with all Stampin' Up! events 'Swaps" are an important part of the proceedings. 

So I set about designing my swaps. Swaps can be cards, bookmarks, gift wrapping, gift boxes. If we do gift packaging we generally wrap/box items. These can be tea bags, sweets, chocolates or as I did in April scissor charms. This time I bought some mini rubbers (erasers) that were Little Kitty themed, I thought these were really cute and would make a nice change to sweets and chocolate. As they were really small I could design anything really. 

I tried out a few prototypes and decided on a match box style gift box. The box measures 1 1/4"x 1 1/4" by 3/4" tall. A nice neat little gift box that would hold jewellery, chocolate, sweets, other small gift which would be great for a table top gift at Christmas.
