Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a little last minute Christmas DIY project I created for Pebbles with you! How are enjoying December so far? I love every minute of it, but sometimes I wish it would be a little less hectic. It doesn’t matter how many lists I make, I always end up with last minute things, like buying just a few more presents or wrapping those last gifts. This year was no exception! Here’re a couple of bright and colorful gift boxes I created using Pebbles’ fabulous Holly Jolly collection and the Pillow Box Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.
So here’s what you do, gather your supplies: patterned papers for the boxes and something to decorate your boxes like die-cuts, tags, twine, stickers & ribbon. To create the boxes in the photo you have to cut your papers in the following sizes: 4″x 6″, 6″x 6″, 8″x 6″and 10″x 6″:
Following the instructions on the punch board the four papers look like this in no time at all:
Fold the papers and use double sided tape to glue the long/straight side of the box closed:
And now comes the fun part: decorating the boxes!
I totally adore the cute die-cuts in this collection: the elf, santa, the deer, the gingerbread cookie … I just love them all!
And I think it’s fabulous that a whole packet with tags and banners is included in this collection! They are just perfect for those gift boxes!
