OK - dingbat that I am, I gave away the gift boxes without writing down the measurements. So, I had to make another and remeasure.... Seriously, I don't remember being this blonde, honestly !! Ok, let's get started.
First, you need 2 pieces of CS that measure 5 1/2 X 5. Then you need a piece of DP that is 3 3/8 X 2 7/8. Your last piece of DP should measure 13/16 wide, but it will be cut into 2 pieces that are 2 7/8 long and 2 pieces that are 3 3/8 long.
You will also need a couple of scrap pieces of CS that are the same color as your box. This will be for the faux ribbon across the top.
Take one of the 5 1/2 X 5 pieces and score it all the way around at 1 inch. This is the bottom of the box. The next piece needs to be scored at 15/16. Click on the second picture for a close up view of what it should look like. Mark this one as "top" on the box.
Cut on one score line on each side of the box, I always do the left one. Now, you can fold all the score lines to makes it easier to adhere it together. I marked the one as the top, but did it on the wrong side. Make sure to do it on the side the you will glue the DP over to cover it. Now, you can glue them both together.
I took two pieces of scrap CS and faux stitched along each side, gluing them to the lid. One was 5 inches long and the other was 5 1/2 inches and both were 1/2 wide.
Take 4 pieces of scrap DP and cut them to 3/8 X 2 1/4. Cut the next 4 to be 3/8 X 1 3/4, and the last one to 3/8 X 1 /4. Add a bit of glue to the one side and fold the other end over on to the glue.
After you have glued the 8 longer ones together, glue the smallest one in a circle. Glue the largest loops together at the quarters on the clock, then glue the next size on top in the spaces left. Then finally, glue the circle loop on top.
Then adhere your finished bow to the top of the box. I used ribbon strips for the box HERE. I did the exact same thing as the paper strips to make the bow, but adhered it all together with sticky strip.
I hope you enjoy making the box. It really is not that hard, but is a nicer way to "present a gift" card. Have fun and happy crafting!!
