Barry's Gift Boxes for Jay's Birthday Presents


Hi Everyone

Thank you for stopping by today, it's Barry here. You may already know that it was Jay's birthday yesterday and thank you to everyone that wished him well. I wanted to try something different and step out of my comfort zone by creating handmade gift boxes / packaging for all of his presents. I think I can honestly say that I am now addictive to making boxes LOL

The box below is a flip top box containing a box of sweets and measures
4 1/4" x 6 1/8" x 1 1/8"
I used 2 small velcro dots to keep the box sealed and the following Stampin' Up! products:


I also used some products from the Autumn / Winter Catalogue launching on 1st September 2017 Below are the product names and numbers if you would like to place an order with us
Painted Harvest Bundle 146021
Leaf Punch 144667
Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set 144783
Merry Little Labels Bundle CLEAR 146030
Merry Little Labels CLEAR Mount Stamp Set 144798
Everyday Label Punch 144668

The next box I created is relatively simple and is a cube to contain a lovely Lush bath bomb and measures 
3 3/8" x 3 1/4" x 3 3/8"
The idea from this box came about from a recent crafting play date with other Royal Stampers in Queen Pip's team. Sara from Crafty Little Minx had a candle box from a shop and wanted to recreate it so the challenge was on! The DSP on this box finishes the box off really well and makes it more special. The box is a closed box with a designer series paper lid as you can see from the pictures below


I have used the following products

I've seen many versions of the faceted box below on the internet and wanted to give it a try. I was able to locate a template with no measurements so my next challenge was to work out how it was constructed and adjust the measurements to fit another Lush bath bomb. The box is 3 1/4" square with faceted sides



The last box contained the main present and was a joint Birthday/Christmas present so I wanted the box to reflect this on the design. The present was already in an elongated box 
12 9/16" x 2 11/16" x 1 1/4"
which I couldn't fit on a single A4 or 12"x12" cardstock. I ended up creating 2 small boxes that interlocks within each other
The Christmas box measures 7" x 2 13/16" x 1 3/8"
The Birthday box measures 7" x 2 3/4" x 1 5/16"


Products used
Retired Christmas DSP
Merry Little Labels CLEAR Mount Stamp Set 144798 (available from 1st September)

I have used both the Stampin' Trimmer 129722 and Simply Scored Scoring Tool 122334 on all of the boxes above. There is another packaging which you can see from the first photo that I will blog with Jay's birthday card soon

I also plan to make video tutorials on some of these boxes if there is enough interest, please leave a comment below which one you are interested in

Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time, BYEEEE!
