Let's have fun making wonderful and simple boxes

Colleen here with some fun and simple boxes you can make.

These boxes were so much fun and so fast and simple to make I hope you will get the bug and start creating some as well.





Start with these Open Handle Teal Friendship Wraps.  Since they come in a package of three you get to have fun creating 3 of the same boxes or you can do what I did and create 3 different boxes.

I started by gluing down the box on top of the double sided  paper.  Make sure you position your paper so the hearts are going in the right direction.  I used the Best Glue Ever to glue down the box.  If you lay your box carefully you can get 2 boxes from one sheet of 12x12 paper.




Now just cut around your box and fold on the dotted lines.  I used a bone folder to make sure everything was folded well.  Now that you have your box glued together you get to have the fun part to decorate how you want.


For this box I used the Valentine Heart Paper.  To make the flowers I used backside of the Princess Glittered Cardstock and a sizzix die.  For the center of each flower I used the white dew drops from Cotton Candy Dew Drops and glued them in place with Best Glue Ever. To finish the box I used a die to cut out the leaves and a Martha Stewart punch for the heart border and some ribbon from my stash.  


I used the Birthday Stars Glitter Cardstock for this box and dug into my sticker stash and added some stickers and finally added some ribbon that I curled.


For this last box I used the backside of the Birthday Stars Glitter Cardstock and again used some of my stickers.  I added crochet cotton to the balloons because you can't just have balloons floating, you need something to anchor them down.  Bright green ribbon finishes off this box.

Please check out these awesome papers and wraps from The Robin's Nest store as well as the other great products.
