Poinsettia Gift Box

Hello everyone, this is Aida here. Can you believe we are into the final stretch of November and not too long before Christmas ? I am sure the gift buying and wrapping for some families have started and for this reason, you might need a decorative Christmas gift box using the very pretty Brenda Walton dies.

These are the dies I used :

Brenda Walton Sizzlits Large Poinsettia Swirls 658733

Other supplies are :
White Cardstock / Ranger Embossing Powder in Snowflake / Ranger Emboss It Dabber / Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass / Brilliance Pearlescent Stamping Ink in Poppy / A strip of matching pattern paper.

Die cut the box using the Brenda Walton Shadow Box die.

Fold at the creases to create the box and glue down the sides of the bottom portion of the box. Ink the edges of the box with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.

Center a strip of matching pattern paper at the top of the box, fold it over the sides and glue the paper down.

Die cut the poinsettia, leaves and swirls. I used 3 pieces of the serated leaf and 2 pieces of the swirls.

The swirls were cut in half, and all the pieces inked lightly with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.

The poinsettia petals were inked with Brilliance Poppy.

Using the Ranger Clear Emboss It Dabber, dab the ink lightly over the petals.

Sprinkle Snowflake embossing powder over the petals in a random motion. Don't worry if parts of the petals are left without any powder.

Heat emboss and when cool, ink the edges again with the Poppy ink to create the varigated tones in the petals. You will now see how the combined effect looks like a dusting of snow on petals.

Squeeze the tips of the petals and gently bend or curl them using a rounded stylus to create a natural looking bloom. Using 3-D foam dots to the under-side of the petals and stack them up to form a poinsettia.

Tie a satin ribon into a bow and adhere it to front of the box.

Dab a small spot of glue in the center of the poinsettia and sprinkle with glass glitter for a vintage sparkle. Adhere the poinsettia to the front of the box, add the swirls and serated leaves. Once completely put together, you have a wondeful gift box for someone special !

I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial, and will try this project !

    Aida, thank you so much for the idea. I do not have the poinsetta die, but I do have the snowflake die and I think I will give it a try with that one. It is a bit bigger and will even cover more of the opening in the lid. Thanks for the inspiration.
