More Gift Boxes

It's almost time to give the teachers their Christmas gifts, so I made these three boxes for them using the beautiful Dashing double-sided Designer Series paper. (See my other examples in this post.) I made these a bit different in that I placed the rhinestone brads on the OUTSIDE of the box. It wasn't that hard - you just have to use a sharpie marker to make a dot where it needs to go, and then pierce the box with a paper piercing tool. The "Very Merry" tag is even on the outside of the top box!

Inside, I placed a gift card along with some mints. I will probably get some different mints as these are too big, but I took the photos with these so you could get the full effect. Also, I left one of the gift cards out in this photo so you could see the vellum pocket better.

I know teachers love practical gifts, and a gift card certainly fits that bill... but to hand them just a gift card is no fun! These are so much cuter, don't you think?

These would also be great throughout the year for birthdays and other special occasions, but you'd better stock up on the boxes now, as they are on the Retiring Accessories list! (See this post for the list, which I continue to update with the items that are sold out already.) You get 4 of these extra small size Stamp & Supply boxes for just $5.25. Hurry up and grab some before they're gone! Order through me and I'll send you the dimensions to make these boxes... they are not hard to make at all. I will be out of town from the 23rd through the end of the year, so if you need to place an order, please have it to me by the 22nd.
