I love all things 3d really but especially boxes, so I was excited to see that this week’s Case-ing the Catty challenge was the Gift Packaging section of the catalogue. There are lots of great packaging options in the catalogue from bags, boxes and more.
But I decided to not make a box, but try a bag made with the new Gift Bag punch board. I decided to add a flap to the top of the bag so that it would have a closure and the tag could be attached to it.
I reversed the colours used from the sample and went with a piece of dotty Melon Mambo from the Brights Collection DSP stack. I hope you like my gift bag!
Here’s a close up of the flap.
For my second project, I wanted to try the hamburger box on page 61. Only one problem, I don’t have the Hamburger box die. So I got out my trusty gift box punch board and a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP and 60 seconds later, voila, I had a box!!
To make the flower, I used a piece of whisper white envelope paper. It’s a lighter paper which made it easier to work with. I cut out a number of petals from the Bouquet Bigz L die, and curved them slightly with my bone folder. I then stuck the petals together with glue dots. You can use either tombow glue or hot glue but I didn’t want to make a big mess and I was in a hurry to get it done! I also cut the black flower centre from the die. I attempted to make the yellow flower centre but as you can see, there’s a pearl in the middle. Less said about that, the better!!
Now I have to mention, I had a bit of trouble getting a good photo of the box, so please excuse my photos!!
Here’s one looking down through the top of my light box.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. The next stop on the CTC hop is Monique. I’m sure she has a fabulous project for you!!
