Hello and thanks for joining me.
Today’s project is a little box for a mini bath bomb from Bodyshop…
I normally use card stock for my boxes and often decorate with designer series paper but as the bath bomb doesn’t weigh much I’ve only used designer series paper for this one.
I used a piece of the beautiful Woven Threads paper that measures 7 x 4 & 1/2 inches and scored on the long side at 1,3,4 and 6 inches. I also scored on the short side at 1 and 3 & 1/2 inches. Here’s the cutting template…
Add glue to the mitred tabs and fold the end and middle ones to form the base and then the 2 remaining ones to form the lid. I used my 1/2 inch circle punch to put a notch in the edge of the lid to make it easier to open.
As the paper is so pretty I really didn’t think that the box needed much decoration. I used the ribbon border punch on Rococo Rose and Terracotta Tile card and added them edge to edge. I stamped the sentiment from Botanical Bliss in Rococo Rose ink onto Whisper White card and cut with the smallest oval from Stitched Shapes dies and added this on top of the border punch outs with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally I added some Copper Trim tied in a knot and frayed the ends. This easily slides off so you don’t have to untie it to reveal the gift inside…
I think this would make a nice little pampering gift. The bath bombs are only £1.50 each so they’re not going to break the bank either. And they smell fabulous!
