A Window Gift Box for a Man in your Life
Hey, there! It’s Robin Redd (a.k.a. RockinReddRobin!). I’m sharing a quick and easy project you can make for a man in your life. Of course, with some simple tweaks, you can make it for a woman or a child. This is a very versatile project.
I’m using the Baker’s Box template today from Green Sneakers.
The design is so simple, yet it creates such a fun box that you can spiff up however you like.
You simply lay the stencil down on a 12 x 12 paper and trace out the cut lines and fold lines.
I used Mens Plaid/Compass Cardstock.
Then you fold it up into a box.
The template has a built in template to make a window.
I used a Spellbinder die to cut my window shape.
I lined the window with clear acetate.
I made birch trees from the straws that that are now in The Robin's Nest Shop and a Sizzix Christmas tree die. For the straw, I cut it up each side to split it so it will be less bulky.
I put the Outdoors Sticker on chipboard to give it more stability, punched a hole in it to make a tag that I tied on with the Natural Twine I had wrapped around the box.
I filled the box with nuts. Now I have a little gift ready to give away.
What are some other things you can put in a box like this?
Chocolates, fudge, a gift card, a tie…the possibilities are endless!
Until next time…
