12 Days of Christmas Stampin' Up! Style - Day 12

Today is Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas!
I hope that you've enjoyed this as much as I have!

Today I wanted to show you one of my favourite gifts
 to give or receive . A handmade box that cards can fit inside!

Of course I have made this for Christmas using gumball green and cherry cobbler
  - my favourite colours this holiday!
This project could easily be adapted to Birthday or Thank you...
stay tuned in the new year for those classes!

The box is made using just one 8.5 x 11 sheet of gumball green cardstock !
Below is a template for you to see how I cut it.
The scoring is super easy..on one of the long ends (11 inches) you score at 2" and 3"
On the other 3 ends you score at 1" and 2"

The Designer Series Paper (patterned paper) is from guessed it - Be of Good Cheer !
It is cut at 4 1/2 x 1 3/4

I also took a  1 inch strip of cherry cobbler and punched it using the scallop trim border punch.
I attached the box using sticky strip since I don't want it to come apart.

The cards were made using very vanilla cardstock and extra strips of the
 Be of Good Cheer cardstock I had  cut at 1/2 an inch.
The 2 3/8 scallop circle punch was used to punch out the cherry cobbler scallop circles.
On the box itself I also cut a very vanilla circle out with the 1 3/4 circle punch.

The candy cane was stamped in cherry cobbler.
The gingerbread man was stamped in early espresso.
The trees were stamped in gumball green.
All were run through the big shot using the Holiday Collection Framelits
and popped them up using stampin' dimensionals.

Handmade gifts filled with love.

Voila ! Simple and always a WOW.
