Hello all! Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here. Thanksgiving will be here in a little over a week. Are you going to someone else's house for the holiday or are you having a gathering at your house? If you're going somewhere for the day, my project would be perfect for presenting them with a hostess gift!
This gift box uses the DCWV Embossed White stack (available at Joann's and Hobby Lobby). I will have the directions to create it below.
I decorated the top with the DCWV Pumpkins DIY Project Stack. That bow? It simply four of the pumpkin wedges with their ends placed together and a brad holding them in place! All of the leaves were from that stack as well. The tag is from the DCWV/Lia Griffith Tags & Labels set. I used Blue Moon Beads twine to attach the tag to the box.
Ready for those box instructions? Here they are!
To create the base:
1. Using a 12"x12" Embossed White cardstock sheet, score it at 2-1/2" and 9-1/2". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score at the same places again.
2. Fold on the score lines. Clip part of 2 score lines on opposite sides of the paper (see picture below).
3. Flip paper so the right side is up. Add a strong adhesive to the four corners. Fold the corners inside and adhere them to create the square base.
To create the top of the box, start with a piece of Embossed White cardstock that is 11-5/8"x11-5/8". Score at 2-1/4" and 9-3/8", rotate 90 degrees and score using the same measurements again. Follow the rest of the instructions for the bottom from that point forward.
Wouldn't this be a great box to use as Christmas wrapping as well? What would you add to the top as your special touch?
