Gift Card Box and Spectrum Noir Giveaway!

Good morning crafters!  Today I have a cute little gift box to share with you.  But before I do that, we are celebrating the fact that we have just reached 1500 Facebook fans!  We are so excited that we have so many Facebook friends and love sharing our love of crafting with so many people.  To celebrate, we want to give away one 24-pack of our very popular Spectrum Noir alcohol markers!   One lucky Facebook fan will win ONE - 24 pack of markers in their choice of either Lights, Brights, Darks, or Pastels ($49.95 value).



To be entered to win, just leave a comment here on this post letting us know that you are a follower of our Facebook page.  Want a second chance to win?  Simply share this blog post on your own Facebook page and leave us a second comment letting us know you did.  (Must be a U.S. resident).  We will announce the lucky random commenter (chosen by Random.org) here on our blog on September 14th.  Good luck!

Now here is the little gift card box I made for you guys today.  I love giving away gift cards at Christmas time, it's just so easy.  So I decided to add a little pizazz to them this year by creating fun little boxes to give them in.



To create my box, I used The Boxer board.  I cut out two 5x7 inch pieces of card stock.  Because I didn't need my boxes to be very deep, I scored all four side of the card stock on the second line of my Boxer board.  Then I turned my boxer board around and did the same thing to the second piece of 5 x 7 inch card stock.  By using the other side of the boxer board I had a lid that fit perfectly.  I LOVE that there is no measuring involved in creating the lid.  Then I just cut flaps out of each corner and adhered all the sides together.  They are very quick and easy to make.

To design the top of the lid, I stamped a couple of holly images from Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Festive collection and colored them with my Spectrum Noir red and green pen sets and cut the images out.  I used a Seasons Greetings stamp for the sentiment.  It is also from the A Little Bit Festive collection.  Isn't the lettering beautiful?  I also sprayed the die cut with Gold Spray Sparkle Glitter Varnish to add a little sparkle to my project.

To complete the card, I layered the die cuts and holly on a piece of designer paper and adhered it to my lid.  Now it's all ready for a gift card.  I plan on making lots of these mini boxes in the next couple of months.  It really is a great way to personalize a gift certificate or card.


Have a wonderful day!

Denise

What a fun idea. This would work perfect for "mailing" those extra puffy 3D cards that you don't want squished into an envelope. :).
