Sunday Make and Take

Ok, here is the second make and take for the weekend!
This is a cute little gift box using the brand new Heidi Grace Christmas line. What I love about this line is that it is full of soft non-traditional Christmas colors. So pretty!
To make this box you begin with a paper mache' box. Lay the cover face down on the plain side of your flocked paper and trace around it leaving about 1/4" all the way around. Cut on this line. Now make snips about every 3/8" and using Super tape or another strong adhesive fold each piece over. Now cover this with another patterned strip that will go around the rim of the cover.
Repeat the above for the bottom of the box. Your strip around the side will obviously be much wider.
I added some curly ribbon on the top of my box and then made a cute little gift tag using the XL Seal of Approval squeeze punch by Fiskars. I added a circle in the middle using the Fiskars Large Round 'n Round squeeze punch as well. To finish the tag off I added two hearts from the Heidi Grace chipboard.
This project only took me about 20 minutes! What a fast and easy way to make some little gift boxes for Christmas!
