Sizzix Tutorial | Spring Gift Box by Jeanne Streiff

Hi! Jeanne here today with Sizzix tutorial for a sweet gift packaging idea! Sizzix Die Cutting Tutorial | Spring Gift Box by Jeanne Streiff

This little box from Eileen Hull's Cherished collection is so adorable and easy to make! I used the largest sized block on the658984 Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Blocks/Cubes, 3-D  for this project. There are two smaller boxes on the same die. This is such a great die for not only packaging but pretty cubes and other altered projects.

I started out but adhering patterned paper (I used a liquid glue, but spray glue would work great too) to the 656492 Sizzix Little Sizzles - 6" x 13" Mat Board. I cut the piece in half (so they were 3" wide)for easy placement over the part of the die I wanted to cut and then cut with my 657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine.

This is what they will look like after they are cut. Notice they are already scored and ready to assemble!

    I am making this for my wedding as favors filled with chocolate - having a hard time having the ends stay together...using scor-pal tape and the red tape - what did you use to have the box stay together? The box looks great, by-the-way...very pretty! Thanks.

    Beautiful box! The layered flower on top is the perfect embellishment. It would also look great cut from fabric, because it's a bigz die it will cut fabric beautifully. The 3d cubes die is on the top of my getting better wish list. Thank you for sharing today.
