2010-11-20 Explosion Mini Gift Birthday Box
I needed a really quick birthday card for one of my co-workers. I had a plain white mini prototype of the box that I made the other day just to see if I could make one and have it turn out. (See my original box HERE) The finished box measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2″. So, I grabbed the prototype and added some scrapbook paper and lacy ribbon and came up with this.
The ribbon is from a huge bolt that was given to me. I does not lend itself well to bow making as it is one sided. So I carefully cut strips and made a bow where only one side would show. To cover all of the joined strips I added a center wrap. My scor-tape sure came in handy while making this bow, not to mention that the tape is the only thing holding it to the top of the box. The tiny tag is made from a die cut by Cuttlebug and the words are by Gina K.
Here you can see the cover taken off the box to reveal the contents that spill out in front of the recipient. Who wouldn’t want a little chocolate fix? There is some rubber stamping with a sentiment under the goodies, but when you have colorful foil wrapped chocolates, who cares?
