Hello and thanks for joining me.
Today’s project is this box made to fit a Molton Brown hand cream…
I spotted a package like this on Pinterest and traced it back to a tutorial from Pootles Papercraft. I resized it so that it fits this Molton Brown hand cream…
This is my absolute all time favourite hand cream so I might just save this gift for my own birthday next month, lol.
I thought I was making this for a colour challenge but I used the wrong pink! However, I like the end result anyway.
Here’s the link to the Pootles blog post with her tutorial – click here
My version is quite a bit bigger. I used Magnolia Lane designer series paper measuring 7 by 5 & 1/2 inches.
On the long side score at 1 & 1/4 inches. Turn the paper clockwise and score at 2 & 1/2 inches and at 5 inches. Turn the paper clockwise again and score at 1 & 3/4 and 4 & 1/4 inches but just to the horizontal score line.
Cut out the skinny panel at the bottom right and cut up the 4 score lines along the bottom to the horizontal score line. Add glue to the skinny panel and adhere to the back of the first panel to form the box. Then fold in and glue the 4 tabs at the bottom to form the base. The package will naturally crease in the middle when you do this.
I used the Detailed Trio punch to add 2 holes along the top to thread through my Gray Granite ribbon.
I used the Daisy Punch on Basic Gray, Gray Granite and Petal Pink card and glued all 3 together. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Petal Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card and cut it with a die from the Layering Circles set. I also inked the edges of the circle with a sponge dauber before adding it to the middle of the daisies and adding them to the front of the package.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. I’ve listed the Stampin’ Up! products I’ve used below and you can click on any of the links to purchase them.
