A Window Gift Box for a Man in your Life

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.
 The Robin’s Nest is teaming up with Ecstasy Crafts this month.  

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.   
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 decorated the window with Wilshire Dew Drops and Safari Mini Dew Drops

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…
