How to Make a Mini Gift Box

The Trees Blog hop hosted by Club Scrap sent me in search of a super-quick and easy fun project. I saw an idea for a gift box made from an 8.5x11 sheet of paper but couldn't track down the instructions. Luckily, it's pretty simple and I was able to figure it out on my own.

The pretty print used for my box is from the Club Stamp paper pack. I'll take this opportunity to shamelessly invite you to join Club Stamp! You'll receive a 12-pack of our beautiful, original papers as well as a monster sheet of unmounted stamps in a cute little priority mail envelope for just $21.95 a month.

You'll need the following supplies:
  • 8.5x11" Trees Club Stamp White Print
  • (2) 1x4.5" Dark Green Plain Strips
  • Scor-Pal
  • Bone Folder
  • Adhesive
  • Crop-A-Dile
  • Ribbon
  • Eyelets
I've made your "CASE-ing" even easier by filming this video. Just follow the simple steps: score, fold, adhere, tie, give away!

I got the idea for the Alka-Seltzer Plus packets because I happen to have a cold. See? Sometimes having a cold can provide just the inspiration you were looking for. The stamped "Get Well Wishes" message was from the Big Deal Greeting UM sheet.

What would you put in the little compartment inside?
